This Piece was done for the Sojie 17 Workshop (Portraiture).
I am ever Thankful to Billyboy for allowing me use of his wonderful original work entitled ‘Boo’

With this image, Initially I had to choose between fear and excitement…as those were the 2 emotions comming to me through the original image…
I chose fear,… because I wanted to inject a bit of my own feelings from when I moved from a (RELATIVELY) small town in Reno Nevada, to a big city (SAN FRANCISCO) to go to college.
So many things happened, as, the life is much more fast paced….But, also, being as naive as I was…I HAD SOME VERY SCARY THINGS HAPPEN TO ME….And lots of lessons to learn about humanity!!
And the scarriest thing that happened up until then, was poretty much having a great big June Bug (3 INCHES LONG) in my sleeping bag one night when I was sleeping outdoors!!
THE BUG IS TO INDUCE THE FEELING OF FEAR….
The skeletal bug/man is symbolic, in that I had to adjust my fears once in a large urban setting. Sometimes mankind can be scarrier than bugs!! And the human hands reaching out from the background are also symbolic in the new fears that one must adjust to!!
….TOO FUNNY LOOKING BACK AT LIFE NOW!!….
.IT CULMINATES ALOT OF THINGS FOR ME!!
COUNTRY/CITY; FEAR/ EXCITEMENT!!
