“Almost Buried” by Lisa Benson

I’m so thrilled to share a third work of art by Lisa Benson, artist and writer for Migraine.com. Lisa says of this piece:

Almost Buried” is inspired by Carravaggio’s Entombment of Christ. I was struck by how much everyone else was taken in by Jesus’s pain. I feel in our society there is a huge separation between pain and “every day life.” When I see so many in the migraine community suffer with no one understanding I wish we would come to help each other like in Carravaggio’s painting. So I sculpted the figure going through his ordeal alone with cars up above on the bridge, completely unaware.

The Golden Gate Bridge is truly a masterpiece of iconic architecture. The 4,200-foot-long, art-deco suspension bridge is made of cable-spun steel and concrete. It’s quite an experience to drive over the freezing cold waters of the San Francisco Bay. Sometimes there is so much fog that it hides the top of the pillars painted in…

Photo Friday- Painsomnia and Writing

May 5, 2017

I spent a large portion of March traveling. I found myself in many different hotels. I had trouble sleeping. I was exhausted, but stayed up late too many nights, writing to keep my mind off the pain. Late night is actually when I feel most creative. The street lights from Vermont Ave off of Thomas…
