Migraine Art

I was trying to describe to my friends what my migraine aura looks like (I rarely get them but have gotten two in the past three days) and I thought it might just be easier to paint it. It is a quick sketch, but this is what I see when I close my eyes when I have an aura.  Of course, it moves and swims, so I can never look at it directly, but I always think of it as an Aboriginal lizard. Of course again, it is made of light so imagine this flashing and every triangle cycling a flash between the white, yellow, pink, and blue... there is clear in there too, with white outlines.  When my eyes are open, the lizard flashes and swims and blocks out whatever I am looking at.
