I did this painting in September 2017 after a long summer of travelling on my own and digging into myself.

It is a symbol of the change that had accumulated in me during the past couple of years. It means that I’m more honest to myself and that I’m finally pushing to get the things that I want.

It was also an exercise of patience – I usually get bored after painting for more than 2 hours, but I knew that if I want to achieve good results with that particular idea for a painting I would need more time. So I painted it over a few weeks doing small steps almost every day, but mostly on the weekends.
