Have we met_ Lavi Picu Art.jpg

Have we met? is one of my recent acrylic artworks. Its a 30" x 30" modern artwork, acrylic on canvas. Available for purchase, if youre interested. ;0) Drop me a line if you`d like to know more details about it or inquire about the price. You can also find it listed at Gallea online gallery.

It is inspired by a real event where due to my brain fog I was not able to remember someone I had known for a while... (well, it all goes back to my Lyme. Yes, I am still dealing with brain fog, courtesy of Lyme disease. )

The artwork aims to act both as an apology as well as a reminder of the invisible symptoms of chronic illness. Have we met? illustrates a reality that many Lyme sufferers deal with, a reality that is sadly ignored or easily dismissed by others.

When you are acquainted with brain fog and have been "seeing" each other for quite some time, it does not come as a surprise that you are not capable of remembering a bunch of things. That`s why is called brain fog!

When I started this painting I had in mind to do an abstract work, but somewhere in the process, I decided to go for a portrait. Here is how it would have looked like if I had left it as an abstract work.


Have we met? is part of my Lyme Awareness Art series that I started more than a year ago in order to raise more awareness about this infamous illness. We all know that art has its ways to touch one`s heart and mind.

I will be posting more of my artworks, from this series and others, so stay tuned!
Meanwhile, have a great evening wherever you are!

At first glance I thought that the painting was done on a piece of wood. That type of imagery and colouring, I think, would look really smart on a slab of reclaimed wood. Have you ever done anything like that?

You're going to laugh at this. I painted on reclaimed wood at the beginning of the lockdown last year when I ran out of canvases.

Nope, no laughing going on. That's called being resourceful!

Excellent painting, both the portrait and the abstract work, both are great work.

Thank you! Appreciated! 😊
