Seeing the Light Through the Flames

"Seeing the Light through the Flames has a couple different meanings. The obvious is the flames and there is a light in the middle which can represent a tunnel to see through the fire. I feel the firemen fighting all the fires in the west must feel the need to see the light through all the smoke and fires for the fires are so hard to put out. The second meaning that relates to my eye disease but could relate to any disabling diseases where people are struggling through their never-ending struggles on a daily basis. My loss of vision or my tunnel vision some days seems worse and frightens me. There are days that everything takes longer. To find and/or do normal things, I feel frustration and anger in doing ordinary things that we take for granted. These are the days that I try to remember that I still can see. I just need to look for the light in the tunnel. As long as I can see something, I remind myself to use the flames of frustration to see the light through the tunnel. Painting in the abstract medium is a great way to relieve the frustration. It is about taking the energy and applying it on the canvas."
