Acrylic on Canvas
I painted this for people who have brain diseases or impairments. I feel it will also be good for people who have chronic headaches or migraines as well.
Trauma and Accidents
I have several family members who have been in accidents that caused brain trauma and injuries. Most leave some kind of impairment even after treatment and rehabilitation. With all the medical advancement and technology we have today, we still know strikingly little about how the brain. Therefore, it is difficult to cure brain diseases or repair brain damage. Knowing this, we should take extra caution to protect that vital organ in our head! But it’s something we generally take for granted, and accidents happen.
Nature also takes its course. As we grow older, so does our body. As our organs grow older, they sometimes don’t work as well as they once did. That’s when Alzheimer’s disease and dementia often set in. Medical advancements seem to be getting closer to helping with these, but they never seem to arrive in time.
Sometimes the brain doesn’t exactly perform correctly from the beginning. Or stroke or trauma leaves us with a disability. Some people are affected by speech disorders or thought impairment. Bipolar disease and Disassociative Identity Disorder (Multiple Personality Disorder) are examples of problems that people have no choice or control over. Medicine can often suppress some of the symptoms, but there is still no cure.
That is why I painted this spiritual healing art, “Brain”. My hope is that the energy of the universe can give the people suffering from brain problems a special chance. Maybe it will help cure their problem, maybe it will help them find a good doctor that can operate on the brain and fix it. Maybe it will just give them and their supporting family, friends and co-workers the support that they need to help each other understand and get by with a brain problem that cannot be helped.
