So I grew up with churchiness. Then got away from it.
Then had a bad experience where I sorta had to stare in the abyss of my own potential death.
(Sucked btw - not recommended).

During that time- I had a weird spiritual experience. I am not now, nor will I ever be an "in your face" zealot bible thumper person.
However, something weird and physical, like drugs happened and since then, I've been going back.

Sorta realized that life is absolutely fleeting and every connection every conversation you make or have with someone should probably contain a lot of honesty and no malice. Again, my "hey total stranger,let me tell you all about my life" rambling, I think is a testament to your ability to conjure that connection with your viewer.

Sleep deprivation and Vicodin might also be minor stage players here but let's go with the thing I said before.
So thanks for bringing back the memories.

Your words have more honesty and sincerity than I expected to be expressed from looking at this piece, it's appreciated.

I've struggled with spirituality my entire life yet I still find myself driving a state away every summer to church retreat camp. I poeticized the feeling I get from there with this scenario - I'm walking in on a church that's closed to me, the pews are empty and it's just me trying to receive this personal experience - you're always told you have to be open to accept, huh. I try and I sit there and listen but every time I see the exit door - not saying I feel compelled to go to it but I'm aware it's there. I don't go to the exit and I don't go to the alter, I'm just there. Maybe it's something that can be said for my generation or maybe it's me, there isn't really meant to be closure in this piece but neither is there meant to be an answer to my question.

Hey stranger, I'm Kaitlyn.

This is poignant, moving. More than colors and shapes it is emotion on canvas. Thank you for posting this, and thank you for your generosity!

Thank YOU - I hope I can do more with the references I took that day. This is a pretty small painting in person, I think the subject matter could do well on a larger scale.
