There is no sense of gravity when
I am holding a brush smothered in paint.

In that moment, I am me. Brooke.
Chaos and contention can't
penetrate my walls.
I feel... Peace.

Painting has helped me better understand life,
because really... life is alot like painting.
You start out with a blank canvas.
So Boring, so dull.
Each of us see its potential.
Maybe not at once but each stroke
brings us closer to our completed masterpiece.

When the brush is in my hand I have
a choice where to place it.
I am the creator.
I am Brooke.
I am me.
