Description: To me, empathy and strength are key components for mental health. To understand another person’s struggle, and empathize with them from your own struggles and find strength together is a beautiful component of the healing process. This water color was painted during a difficult time, with the intention of displaying the beauty of strength and empathy through portraiture.
