Circulation of the Light
l987, oil on canvas, 48 x 37", by Jenny Badger Sultan
This was a painting I did after I had had surgery and radiation for breast cancer. During the time before and after surgery I had meditated on a regular basis, visualizing healing light and energy entering my body and traveling throughout my being. I found that this practice helped reduce my fear and stress and made me feel I was doing something to allow healing to take place.
When I was able to begin painting again this was the image I wanted to work on, as a way to bring the focus on healing into my art work, and keep the healing energy moving in my life.
