The inspirational spark for this painting was from Neil Young's song "Heart of Gold." It was the yearning in "keeps me searching for a heart of gold" part that resonated. Somehow in the painting it became more literal. It could have been in part my own yearning for the physically sound. In my imagination it turned into a real heart beating in the body, standing for the physically sound, gratitude for life and breath. I know gratitude has been a key in my healing. In the end, I can say this painting did bring me greater contentment and better health.
