Introspective ink painting

In my Minnesota Seven Corners stage, many ink paintings are introspective self portraits. Above is one of the most dynamic, flowing up from the feet, emitting yin/yang, stabbed vulnerably, arising through radiance and new growth. Here's the writing:

"They don't think I can draw well enuf.

He doesn't think I'm woman enuf.

I don't think I'm free enuf.

Leo needs more of a family.

In no vocation do I succeed.

And yet I love to be an artist.

I love to be a woman.

I love to be a mother.

What but I must succeed."
