'The wounded healer' Hahnemühle German Etching Print
Sometimes a painting just wants to be born. 'The wounded healer' is one of those paintings for me. While painting it, it offered me the chance to feel the turbulence inside, which we all experience from time to time.
Nobody escapes being wounded. We all are wounded people, whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. The main question is not “How can we hide our wounds?” so we don’t have to be embarrassed, but “How can we put our being wounded in the service of others?” When our wounds cease to be a source of shame, and become a source of healing, we have become wounded healers.
The wounded healer is a symbolic and myth inspired piece. It is inspired by the mythical centaur Chiron who used cornflowers (botanical name: Centaurea) to heal. According to myth he was wounded himself and unable to be cured.
If you have had the opportunity to encounter the mythic barn owl, especially during the day, symbolically there is a message about fear of the unknown, and the courage to navigate that fear.
So if you feel like you’re groping around in the dark, it's time to call on barn owl’s help for understanding what you haven’t been able to know before and making your way to the dawn.

It's recommended to frame an art print behind glass. How to frame your print is up to your personal taste, but feel free to ask me for advice. I'll happily share my ideas.
Never hang art and art prints in direct sunlight.
The print comes safely rolled in a tube. Allow the print to relax (unroll) before framing. To do this, carefully unroll the print and place some books (or something similar) on the ends and let the print 'relax' about a week.
