Exactly ten years ago

After many months of physical pain I was able again to paint. I imagined this painting that would tell how I was and how I felt at that moment. It was a self portrait where my left hand showed my birthmark (an hemangioma) and my right hand showing the stitches from surgery after the carpal tunnel syndrome I got about the time of giving birth to my (then first and now only) child. Now I see it clearly, it is about my birth and my son's birth.
What really surprises me is that at that time I didn't allow myself to have emotional pain, it was only many years after that I started accepting it.
Today it occured to me to make a photo impression of that painting.
