Artwork description:

A young man, draped in summer sun, through the large Victorian windows of Brynmill Coffee House, sits with a "Joe To Go" take away coffee after suddenly realizing, in shuddering moment of refection, that the place he was intending going to, may not longer be a welcoming place.
He sits down, shaky limbed, to reflect and consider the reasons why?
I attempted to catch and illustrate his reflecting through the reflections in the window and express his rushing chaotic thoughts through the smudged window and the sense movement in the scene and road outside the window. A rushing. The exterior reflecting and internal state of movement and obscurity.
It is sunny out but less illuminated inside his head and heart.
I have attempted to catch this one reflecting moment to illustrate the human condition and the every day consequences of our complex decision making. I related to this student and that fleetingly sense of terror that he has with coming to terms with a decision he has made. Learning as he goes.
