“My painting ‘Capering along the Shore’ holds several meanings for me. On the surface, it depicts a scene of joy and tranquility at Lake Michigan, capturing the simple pleasures of being in nature.
However, the painting takes on an additional layer of meaning through the context of a woman’s recovery from chemotherapy. The woman’s actions, portrayed as she exercises to regain the use of her hands and feet, symbolize resilience and determination in the face of challenges. It serves as a metaphor for the human spirit’s ability to strive for recovery and renewal, even when confronted with adversity.
