This was my very first pain painting.  This is how my back feels, like two hammers are crushing down hard on it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pins and Needles

Many back pain patients get this feeling in their legs if they have a nerve/disc issues.  Feels like the pins and needles are stabbing you all over your legs!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bob’s Stroke

This painting was inspired by a chronic pain patient, that I have known for years, Bob.  His stroke happened two years ago and he is still adjusting to his new life.  The right side of his face feels like an empty space, is what Bob described to me.

A Painting where your legs feels extremely heavy, making it hard to move or walk. Many pain patients will tell you this is how their legs feels.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ponygirl

This painting was inspired by Ellen.  She is a chronic pain suffer and was thrown from her pony.  She use to be an avid hiker, but now feels the pain of nails going into her neck.
