This piece represents dual perspectives: 1) what is obvious , 2) what isn’t. For the one who feels like their head is pressed under water, weighed down by feelings of despair… loved ones above water will often see solutions that seem obvious (lifebuoy symbol ⭕⛑️).
For the one under water, their feelings feel dark, cloudy, they know there is light and life above – but they are so confused – with judgement impaired – they cannot see what others see above them. They are all consumed by the heavy weight of emotion that keeps them anchored below…
For the loved ones above, it’s normal to see waves, see them crashing, but there are solutions in sight. If those they loved would just LOOK – they could see what could help them.
This painting represents both truths, not always obvious to each other. The supportive loved ones cannot see or feel what it’s like to be below the surface, how heavy and painful the emotions are that weigh them down… and equally true is the obvious solution that lies waiting above for the one who sits below.
