When injured, there is a choice of whether we want to heal or not. Do we drown ourselves under the pain, become a creature of wounds and wounding? Or do we regrow damaged parts, like an octopus regrowing limbs?

I created this painting for the Month of Love challenge - Metamorphosis. As I painted it, it evolved into something more. I am in the process of painting two more pieces to make this the center painting for a triptych. These three paintings, I plan to use as the cover for a set of stories I am writing and I can't wait till I have a little more to share from that!
