    i ABSOLUTELY freaking love this…what you wrote, the message is everything, i relate only all too well. i love the grunge/texture/layers….stunning

  • I love your comments, Heather! I have felt this way my whole life, like a previous version of myself follows me and is always there, in the back of my mind, everywhere I go. We all wear so many masks, ans sometimes it is so difficult to take the masks off and let people see the real you – the you you want to be, deserve to be.
    (I just learned layers and I am goin nuts – I think I used about 6 on this one! LOL)

    powerful message Scott

  • I agree, Kathilee!! I have been guilty of this too – trying to forget the things I have done and the mistakes I made in the past – we can get by them (as in my photo, keep them behind us), but we cant forget. Thanks so much for your comments! :)xx

    oh yes me too, I think many can relate…for it can be difficult to know your own heart and truth that can get so tangled up in others expectations, life and the chaos that comes with everyday living…

  • I am totally on the same page as you Robin (and my therapist would most likely agree too! LOL)

    Great message and great work Scott! Very insightful.

  • Thank you Sheryl!! Like Ron (from RB) told me once, there is no such thing as a bad-shot. They can all be made into something awesome. Much appreciated!!
