Acrylic on canvas 90cm x 90cm x 4cm
'Sad Girl' made me feel empathetic as I suffer from depression. It also created a feeling of caring and motherliness. She looks alone and vulnerable. I wasn't clear of how this painting would turn out, but birds represent the spirit and here they seem to be sending a message. The girl is in the sky and seems to have been lifted up. A deeper analysis will take me some time to discover. I also feel it is sometimes better for the image to communicate via the unconscious rather than a verbal translation.
