This piece is about the struggle we all encounter in life and the celebration of both the strength and beauty it can bring to our lives. I don't reject the struggle, I embrace it. I take the title from the words of Carly Simon who states we are "ennobled by scars". I hope you enjoy this gestural, strong, graphic work made of heavy line, sweeping arcs of blue, white, metallic silver and gold. It is fully painted on all sides, wired and ready to hang.
