Have been thinking about adding text to these for a while. So have painted a similar composition to yesterday and added these words. I added these words to a sketchbook drawing back in 2002 with a matchstick drawing of my father who sadly lost his entire adult life to alcoholism. The impact of what I now realise was an illness for him, had enormous negative implications on my life. Chaos and a horrible unpredictability along with violence throughout my 'childhood'. Thankfully I found an outlet in creativity and have given myself as good a life as one can have with no solid foundations. So this painting means a great deal to me in terms of my father's addiction and the will to survive. I'll make more with texts but this one is a keeper.
