Unfinished Paintings "Maryam Mirzakhani"

Unfinished Paintings "Maryam Mirzakhani"

In fact, in the last few days, a mathematician named Maryam Mirzakhani died of cancer.
In the dream, there were paintings from her. As far as I know, she is not a painter. But in the dream, she seemed to have drawn many paintings in the style of Real and Surreal, using pencil and charcoal, and black pen.
Some half-finished paintings were being published. I saw the paintings closely and touched. I was very surprised. They were very skilful. All were from the faces of young girls.
Meanwhile, a half-finished Surreal painting attracted my attention. This painting depicts the emotional distress of a young girl. A beautiful girl who felt emotional alone.
It was very strange to me that she had drawn such a painting.

    Hi Zahra, if this were my dream I would note the contrast between mathematics and art, for one is left brain/analysis/mind (real) and the other right brain/intuitive/emotions (surreal). I would think about the ways I could complete the painting of the girl - change the "tone" from distressful and/or lonely into something more positive and healing. I would ask myself, "How do I feel ready to 'face' negative emotions in order to transform (finish) these feelings into something more positive?"
