My Art: Chaos. 6/25/2013.

Chaos

Chaos

 

She stared blankly at him,

Unaware of what’s left to think about,

And what’s left to say.

Memories.

Good and bad.

All done now,

All gone now.

Love,

So beautiful one day

Yet so destructive

the next.

All done now,

All gone now.

She stared.

Loving someone is probably the most difficult thing you can ever choose to do in your life. Real love takes a whole lot of effort to really make it work. Everyday you make the decision to either move on with your significant other or walk away.

I painted Chaos when a string of eventful days filled with fighting, crying, and making up bombarded my life. It wasn’t because we lost the love we had for each other, but it was because nature was taking its course.

Love is that way. Love is erratic.

It can be beautiful one day and destructive the next. It’s what you do with the love you found and have every single day that determines where it will lead you, whether you end up forgetting what it’s all about, what you two are fighting for, or whether you choose to stay and fight for it.

Chaos is my reminder of that constant question in relationships: should I stay or should I go?

I found my answer and I still am standing up for that answer up until now.

    Chaos represents the state where i am right now. In the middle of trying to weigh things around me. But this is life … Life’s dash of struggle.

    • True! This is exactly how I felt when I painted her. There were things to figure out, feelings to understand, love to keep or let go of. But as you said, it is, after all, what life is all about. I found my answers and I’m hoping that you’ll find yours, the right ones, in time too. 🙂
