'This represents one of three similar shocking experiences, unexplainable subconscious depictions. Somehow my brain seems to be able to precisely record certain people without me.This was the first. (Aswritethis I am suddenly reminded of experiences I had in college....once, on an exam,I answered a question in the exact words of the text and the professor asked if I had cheated. I could not believe it myself!Another time I designed a magazine format for a journalism course that closely resembled an Italian journal I had seen years before in the library on another subject. They call it total recall .Afterwards, I thought nothing of it ,except happenstance , until I made this painting.).Sharingan elderly model one morning, who wore an outrageous hat, I was surprised at how quickly I drew her but only the hat seemed to be true. Knowing myself obviously inept, I tossed it aside among my other failed reaches to record someone's face.Six months later, cleaning out an old rusting file cabinet in my furnace room , out of an ancient cardboard file dropped a picture of my maternal grandmother-the exact face here that I had drawn.Because this has happened three times now, ...faces appearing in my work from long ago memory....I have become deeply fascinated by the workings of the brain itself-all our brains.And I am quite sure I became inspired to develop the PAINT YOUR LIFE trademarked process to help others tap into their own miracle interior, having been deeply shocked by the cells of my own brain to guide my hand.Without me.This drawing of my beloved maternal grandmother has deep emotional meaning for me, well beyond accuracy .It exemplifies the DNA flowing from within, with which I am blessed , and consistently reminds me it is not myself here. I represent many others who came before.' -Jacquelyn Thunfors
