Lise Melhorn-Boe: "Some of a series of watercolours I painted when my old house was making me sick. These images were supposed to fool my mind into believing that all was well, although the first image pretty much portrays how I was feeling. ... The images portray a journey from despondency to a joyful wellness, as the artist tried to visualize herself better."
