Body and Soul, Oil on Canvas; © Jennifer Pohl
I don’t think it’s possible to be human and not feel broken at least once in a lifetime.
On the day I started this piece, broken was how I felt — it was why I had to do this painting. I started working by the light of one candle in the evening and couldn’t see the colours on the canvas as I worked through the night. By the time the sun came through the window the next morning, I had finished. And I felt whole again.
