"The Sound of Cicadas," a 36x48 inch Original Abstract Painting


A part of my forthcoming collection of paintings inspired by the MANIA I experience with bipolar disorder.

From my artist statement for the collection:

This is what mania looks like.
Painting for hours at a time without coming up for air. A million ideas swirling around at once. Talking to employees at the art supply store for like, an hour.
To be manic is to be intense, bold, LOUD.
My mania makes NOISE.
I have learned to appreciate it and let it jump into the driver’s seat when I’m driving myself into the creative process. Let out the wild, celebrate the untamed, let the party within loose onto the canvas.
This is what it looks like when we turn what is dubbed as “mental illness” into a superpower! To me it’s not a disease, it’s my personality and my gift.

Please allow two weeks for me to process and ship your order. During this time I varnish and safely package your painting. If you need your painting sooner for a special gift-giving occasion, please inform me immediately so that I can rush your order!

This painting is shipped via USPS Parcel Select which means it is considered oversized for USPS. I will invoice you (domestic in the USA) for $40 shipping charges to cover this fee if you do not select that option at checkout. I do ship Internationally, so if you are not in the USA please choose the International Flat Rate for Paintings at checkout. I ship the painting still attached to its wooden frame (this requires extra shipping material to ensure that your painting does not suffer damage during shipment). Usually this cost of shipping materials and postage is around $80, but I like to split this 50/50 with you!
