Optimistic, from the Anatomy of Potential series

Watercolor, ink, graphite

15″ x 22″

For a long time I thought this piece was going to be about a stifling mental block that prevents someone from moving forward even when they see the benefits of doing so. Instead, as the image developed I saw this as an optimistic attitude in the face of difficult circumstances. I have myself, at one point or another, exhibited both behaviors and continue to do so.
