Stand Sentinel

holds a special place close to my heart..
It's the first painting of my LIFE IS A BIRCH series that represents my healing process after being severely injured in a car crash that resulted in fire.
The colors I used on this painting represent the fire and it takes me back to that day when I was fighting to get out of the car.. rolling on the grass to put out the flames that engolfed my body, and finally find shelter under some birch trees..
These trees stood sentinel and protected me while waiting for the paramedics to arrive...
