Obstacles Become Opportunities #9

Obstacles Become Opportunities #9


SIZE: 60"X48"

I absolutely love this painting style, and it's titled "Obstacles Become Opportunities." It's all about my journey through the ups and downs of life, particularly in terms of health and love. The painting narrates the story of the various moments we all experience in our lives.

You can see these squares that kinda resemble the days on a calendar, each filled with our goals and dreams. But life doesn't always unfold the way we plan, right? Some days, it feels like the ground beneath us crumbles, and our whole world changes in an instant. We're left feeling defeated and stuck, going through some seriously tough times.

But here's the cool part: if you take a closer look, you'll notice that these obstacles can actually lead us to some incredible opportunities. It's all about perspective and how we choose to navigate those challenging moments.
