Pain Before Cleansing

"Pain Before Cleansing" 16in x 20in Acrylic Painting on flat panel canvas.

This painting depicts an abstract version of pain in all aspects of my life personally and the effects it has on me physically. The stress I feel in certain situations of my life can be so painful that I would sometimes cry the pain away. Crying for me would be a sense of cleansing in a way. I feel a little better when I cry. Especially when I cry so hard that my eyes turn red. I wanted to depict the "Cleansing" aspect by using a nude black female literally showering in the tears created by pain.
