The woman that inspired this painting preferred to be identified using initials only.

A Little Peace of Heaven, is a visual representation of MTS's struggle to find a sense of autonomy and purpose, symbolized by her difficulty in getting out of bed. The mountainside, textured and dynamic, reflects her journey of overcoming adversity and seeking a sanctuary within herself.

This piece invites viewers to explore the textured nuances of the mountainside, connecting with MTS's journey and perhaps finding inspiration in the pursuit of one's own little piece of heaven.

The textured strokes and layers of color not only depict the physical landscape but also serve as a metaphor for the emotional depth within this woman's narrative. MTS's background, growing up in a refugee camp, is reflected in the rugged, heavily textured surface of the painting.

The mountainside, depicted with a palette knife, mirrors the challenges she faced in her formative years. Yet, within this landscape, there is a sense of serenity, symbolizing her enduring strength and connection to nature.

MTS's personal preferences come to life in the details of the painting. Her love for Chinese shows and the therapeutic ritual of enjoying a drink find representation in the nuanced colors and textures. The green and blue background, chosen to honor her favorite color, weaves through the canvas, creating a harmonious and calming atmosphere.

Thank you to MTS for bravely sharing your story & inspiring this painting.
