Artist's Description

Watercolor; 120lb. paper

Currently on exhibit at Ferndale Public Library, Ferndale, Michigan

A week or two after I painted this, I slipped into a very dark depression that lasted almost all summer; it was a very negative and painful time for me, and I remember this painting as being one of my last happy moments of that period. I’m better now, but this was created right before an unforgettable mental storm!
