"My Lady on the Water"
This is part of the series in which I've been developing this idea of creating a scenery to help describe the emotions evoked by the images/objects I create. It's rewarding to be able to make something - to be able to transfer my energy into something tangible - but it is rewarding to be able to take that something and create a narrative, or evoke an emotion. This is what I strive to do in my work! If I don't move someone to feel something, be it that they hate or love it, I don't feel as though I've succeeded in doing what I set out to accomplish: to move the viewer to think and feel more than they were before seeing my piece.
