Underneath

When I made the paintings, prints, and hooked mats of my SURFACING collection of works, I felt like I was just breaching the surface, coming up for air and starting to feel successful in all areas of my life.

Surfacing III Janet Davis (2016_07_12 16_56_16 UTC)
SURFACING 5   Oil on plywood   Private collection   Janet Davis 2012

I did not expect to feel trapped underneath
without air to breath
There is light streaming down
from above
If only I could grasp it
It’s cold and quiet down here
Depression
Numb
Beautiful glimmers
of beauty all around me, even while drowning
Sparkles
Hope
Family
Love
Breathe
