The Pain Within by KV-Arts The Pain Within by KV-Arts


It's about keeping emotions in and one thing I keep to myself is pain. This piece depicts the physical pain of sinus headaches, something I get a lot in public but never tell anyone.
I am sensitive to temperature change and it feels like one side of my skull is on fire while the other is iced over. It feels like the two forces are trying to force my skull apart from the inside out and it can be so bad that I can't function properly.

Why I don't tell anyone? I don't like to bug people with my problems, let alone my internal problems. I suffer in silence and deal with it in my own time.

Made of air-dry clay and acrylics. 4 inches tall, 3 inches at the widest point.

I am really sorry about your sinus headaches. Those are very painful. Doctors can't help? Maybe you need surgery? I am no doctor, I just hate to hear of suffering. Especially for an artist as talented as you...

So, I find this piece STAGGERING. EXCELLENT. You convey such emotion, and your composition and color (especially after your explanation) are very effective. I will be watching you. Keep it up.

I don't see a doctor for them since they are not a constant. They happen when the weather changes and when there is smoke (wildfires). I am affected by both the temperature and the barometer (pressure). I also freeze and overheat easily so overheating in a cold air can have a similar effect as a sunny day with a cold wind. I'm in Southern California so the weather fluxes a good deal.

But most of the time I catch them quickly and can diffuse them with a hot cup of coffee, Andrea Bocelli in my iPod, and meditation. I also keep headache medicine just in case but I try not to make it my first option.


And Thank you VERY much! :)

Bocelli - nice touch.

It sounds like you have a well-thought out and great plan for dealing with them. I am sorry that you have to struggle with it. The fact that you stay in touch with your artistic routes says a lot about your strength and endurance. Thank you for sharing your gift.

It took a while but now that I know the variety of situations that can cause them, I'm better prepared. And I have friends here on dA that I can talk to as they have similar situations. :)

Art is a must for me but I would go crazy if I did just art. I need my academia side also and plan to go into Mortuary Science as an embalmer. I'll be doing freelance art, as well. :)

Mortuary Science - wow - you are a brave soul. How kind.

Did you ever watch Six Feet Under?

I understand about the intellectual stimulation. I have a Master's, but I no longer work (depression, etc.) and I have tried to revive my undergrad interests in philosophy. Unfortunately due to my meds. my memory is very bad and I have trouble retaining knowledge.
