Comments: On the top of the big head there is a picture of a little boy. For me that represents the little boy inside of me crying out because of loneliness and pain of being abandoned by my folks because of business. The images of the women always calling out to me to comfort me in my pain. Like the “sirens” in Greek mythology, they call out to me. But afterwards getting dashed into the rocks, never really finding any fulfillment in those magazines. And there is always another “siren” calling out to me to come. Painting about my sexual addiction and bringing it to the “light” has been very helpful in my recovery. I am also realizing that the lack of meaningful friendships had brought me into bondage. And the restoration of meaningful relationships has helped me let go of my addictive behaviors.
