How the healing came into being August 24 2020

Healing painting
I started this painting right before my bilateral mastectomy.
I thought that while creating and painting I could mourn my loss
but also heal and be thankful for the lifesaving surgery. 
I painting the background first. Calming colors. 
Then painted the hawk. Please check out the story behind my spirit animal.
Applying my dots to create feathers.
I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out, but I'm so happy with the results.
This is the finish art. Yes, I feel like it captured my thoughts
at this moment in my life. Here's to all of you
that are in the middle of healing!
