The beauty of art is that we are allowed to do whatever we want. We don't have to explain any of it because it's art. Art can be about anything or everything. It can represent emotion, humor, or a point of view. Art gives you the freedom to speak up or lay low. So for me, my inspiration for this canvas was that I am finally breaking through. Like, the Cactus I am rough; withered by the landscape but beautiful simply because I am alive. The crazy thing is, unfortunately we don't have the option to choose the circumstance we are going to born into, but we do have the option of choosing what we will make out of it. We ultimately have the power to thrive and live, and that's amazing.
