Self-Portrait.

amorecolore-003

Acrylic, gouache, and Krylon on canvas.  48″ X 52″.

When this piece was made, I was traveling through life at lightning speeds. Like an electron, spinning too fast for any protons to latch on. I felt that slowing down would somehow leave me rooted to one spot. By the time I did take a breath, I came face to face with a terrible force that shook my entire being to the core. “In the middle of the journey of our life, I came to myself within a dark wood where the straight way was lost. Oh, how hard it is to tell of that wood; savage and harsh and dense, the thought of which renews my fear.” -Dante Alighieri
