Oil on canvas

36 x 48 inches



In 1999, I was seriously injured in a car accident. Later, I created a series of 10 oil paintings that depicted symbolically my thoughts, emotions, and beliefs about this accident, starting from right before the accident happened until afterwards, in the hospital, when I knew I would be OK. The paintings were meant to be viewed like a storyboard from 1 to 10.


This painting is the eight in the series. This is a very emotional painting of my poor little car after the accident.  I tried to portray it as a wounded hero, as I felt like it had heroically sacrificed its life to save me. A small amount of paint has come off at the very top of the painting. It is not really noticeable or I can restore it.
