When I was first diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in 2000, I began doing some paintings as a form of therapy, to get out the poisons, so to speak. What this process did was to enable me to gain more control of memories that had previously controlled me. These paintings were done more with this thought in mind, as opposed to doing paintings with an aesthetic value. For some, these paintings have reportedly allowed them to relate and begin healing as well. In posting them here, that is my hope.
