"Flood" - 16x20 - oil on canvas
piece for the Splinters & Paper Cuts show
this was the first piece I did for the show. Though in the begining of prepping for the show, I had a different idea on where the show pieces where going, but as I worked on them things surfaced and the end result was a different one.
I had drawn this sketch a long time ago, when I was in a dark place. Sometimes certain memories reside in a sea of blackness, and nothing will change that. And though its easy to to dwell on these things, and be bitter, its best to celebrate what you've overcome, and that you even had a chance to become stronger through it.
