Facing the Shadows

Oil and Egg Tempera on board. 21 x 34 3000

This is a portrait of a man gathering his determination, honesty and courage in order to face his fears and the difficulties that lie ahead. The light from behind him illuminates his view into the room; it causes him to cast his own shadow, and so the image could also refer to the necessity of facing the darker aspects of oneself.

Hand embellished giglee print. 300
