DO THIS, DO THAT, GET ON WITH THE AUTOMATION OF THE DAILY GRIND... BUT WAIT, WHEN DID WE STOP BEING HUMANS??
SOMETIMES IT'S ONLY THE CONTRASTS IN LIFE THAT REMIND US THAT WE STILL KNOW HOW TO FEEL. HOW SWEET IS THE TASTE OF JOY AFTER THE BITTERNESS OF SORROW? HOW RICH DO WE FEEL AFTER HAVING GONE WITHOUT? TO EXIST IN THIS WORLD WE HAVE CREATED, WE TRY OUR BEST TO BLOCKADE OUR VULNERABILITIES, DENYING THAT LIFE'S UPS AND DOWNS HAVE ROCKED OUR CORES. BUT MAYBE ONE DAY, WE'LL STAND TRIUMPHANT, RELISHING THE FACT THAT WE NO LONGER FEAR LIFE IN CONTRAST.
I clearly remember where my emotions were when I painted each one. Even so, art is very personal to each viewer.
Tell me what YOU feel...

As the season turns to frost
And trees are lit aflame
I'm reminded of the weighty cost
Of playing Passion's games
Of love inside and cold without
Of pride and shame and rage and doubt
The fire inside that moves us all
The rise that builds before the fall
But what would we do without cold and hot
To remind us to feel every second we've got?
