The Artistic Images of Pain
Pain is not fun as everyone knows, but it's really wonderful to see how certain people are able to use pain as a motivator, and make something positive out of a negative situation. This web site, PaintingPain.com, is a wonderful example of pain patients expressing themselves through art.
The site was inspired by Heather Bolinder ( her painting above) experiencing excruciating pain and being bed ridden for a year. You can read her story of how her doctor knew she loved art & expression and encouraged her to "paint her feelings". The website is a collection of art inspired by the experience of pain. Very well done.
