All my paintings are very personal in nature, but this one is especially so. It reflects a lot of things I was going through at the time of painting this.
Losing loved ones.
I never really got over my parents deaths, nor the violent passing of a best friend many years ago.
Passing over to the light and the fear of what's on the other side. Or perhaps, an even greater fear that there is no 'other side.'
I also lost my religion around this time. I was always a passive Christian, and then one day I woke up and it was that feeling you get when you misplace something. I looked around and I couldn't find it anywhere. Then I came to terms with letting it go. Throwing a crutch away and walking on my own for the first time
