Staring God in the face.
This piece is probably my most content-heavy one, making it very precious.
It's gone through several layers: The first was a self-portrait I had done the day after being physically assaulted by an ex. The second: was a scene from a memory I had the day that I had decided I was going to take my own life (the plan fell through, and no worries, no more plans like that have arisen and I am getting support). The Third: The third and final layer came after I found God/peace/enlightenment and felt as though I was a medium for this higher power to produce "Blue". It is a very spiritual piece and one that signifies a destruction of the old self and rebirth to a new.
*These changes occurred over a two year span; I didn't plan for these layers to occur in the order they did or to even paint over the previous ones. The only reason I painted in layers was caused by the fact that I did not have extra money to go out and buy new canvas or panels to paint on.
