Jagged Anger

The artist M.E. Dunham, whose work I shared here, offers this image on the theme of anger. I invite you to zoom in and spend time with Dunham’s painting, and see if it doesn’t connect you with the powerful and cleansing force of your own anger.

Healing Through Art

After an experience of clergy exploitation, we find our voices in many ways. I’ve found mine through words, but there are other paths. The artist M.E. Dunham, whom I’ve had the privilege of meeting through this blog, has found healing from her experience through painting and drawing. She has given me permission to share two of her works here. She says, “Maybe some other traumatized people will be inspired to paint their way out of their painful memories, even twenty years later.”

With thanks to M.E. Dunham, I’m pleased to share these works with my readers.
