Original Painting by Beata Dagiel

Acrylic on Canvas. Final measurement including frame 84x84cm

This is a portrait of a woman in trouble, just a moment before she says 'Let It Be' and allows life to live her. It is inspired by my mother's wish for me to paint Mother Mary and the first picture that came to my mind when she said it. It has been proceeded by a poem, which has also been turned into a song. The theme of this painting is the process of acceptance and liberation from the conviction that we need to be in full control of our lives at all times.

Below please find a poem that I've written for this picture. There is also a song that goes with it, that will be released shortly.

LET IT BE 

her cramped palms covered her face

concealing fear, confusion and hate

why does this happen to me right now

when did this nightmare became my fate

 

her thoughts spinning, searching for peace

her fingers digging deep into skin

whatever happened to the blithe days

how can I find peace deep within

 

please world don't let me stay in this state

please love don't leave me alone in here

please life don't abandon my veins

please God don't walk away from me

 

and then this voice strong, calm and sound

painted a picture of a new start

it asked to trust though there's no sense

it asked to open the wounded heart

 

one tear has dropped, crushing in pieces

it's salty crystals rolling around

her forehead softened it's wrinkled creases

her screaming mouth didn't make a sound

 

the world stopped spinning at awe of this sight

the moon stopped pulling tides from the sea

calmness and strength filled up her eyes

her shoulders dropped, her mind went clear

 

whether she smiled, no one could see

but when she slowly opened her eyes

her purple lips let out this sound

these words of wisdom, the  LET   IT   BE
