Artist's description:

Life is always teaching us lessons and what we learn from these lessons is what builds our character and changes our personality. These experiences help us mature, only if we are ready to learn from them. Yet we are constantly fighting these instincts and trying to live a lie. Introspection, understanding our inner self and getting in touch with our inert instincts, help us to awaken the truth. 'The Awakening' is about that moment in life when suddenly we come face to face with the truth and we are unable to handle it and yet we do not want to run away from it any more. It is about being honest to one's self and finding solace in it. It is about realizing that there is nothing which is absolute in this world and nothing which we can control. I used watercolor wash on handmade paper and then drew in the details with a pen using waterproof ink.
