You know all those prescription commercials you see on TV?
The ones where they have some actor smile and say how much better they feel on a certain medication, and then they fade away from her face to showing her walk along a glistening beach while some slick, fast speaking man overrides the rest of the commercial with things like "side effects include, but are not limited to: rash, headache, nausea, diarrhea, infection, depression, mental status change, stroke, heart attack, or death. Do not take this drug while taking any other drug. Do not use this drug if you are pregnant, nursing, laying down, standing up, living, breathing, healthy, or sick in any way." And he goes on like this for at least 10 X longer then the advertisement for the medication itself?
Depressing, isn't it?
So here is my answer.
I literally ripped it out of the anatomy book I used in med school and you can even actually see the tear in the upper left corner of the artwork, but heck, maybe that is part of the message too.
Life is organic and real and precious and rare and beautiful.
It isn't all about facts and labels. It isn't about erasing your health with medications and it isn't about facts and figures and side effects.
Ripping out the old medical school anatomy diagrams and painting a new, more vibrant reality was just so much fun.
Here I tell you how to take your medicine... and it goes down easy and has no harmful side effects, I promise.
The medicine is energy flow and here are the simple directions... no fast talking disclaimer necessary:
For best results... use your brain with fresh, positive thinking.
For best results... use your nose with lots of daily deep breathing.
For best results... use your mouth to speak your inner truth.
For best results... live your life in the NOW. Not in yesterday. Not in tomorrow. Right now is where the point of power is and this is the moment we've got to work with.
This original painting/mixed media altered page would be an amazing original work of art to have in your home, to remind you to seek your own inner truth. Especially if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with something in the linear world of medicine... just remember this. They don't know it all. I've been there and back and I can say it for sure: they don't know it all. You do. You have your own healing energy flowing to you right now.
This inspirational artwork will remind you of that.
I used acrylic paint and archival inks to paint right on top of my medical school anatomy texbook illustration of the cross section of the head. The original artwork is 8 x 10 inches, matted, signed and framed in a wood frame... ready to hang!
Professionally printed Giclee prints are also available, featuring archival inks on gorgeous heavy weight velvet smooth archival paper. Prints are 8 x 10 inches and matted in an 11 x 14 inch mat, signed.
