This is a re-upload of a deviation I submitted in 2007, formally known as "Health Sins" (14x20 in)
The girl in the painting is contemplating her life, coming to the realization that many of the things she's done, without any thought or hesitation have led her down the path of self destruction. Broken spirited. Admitting the truth. Unable to live in ignorance any longer.
I was lucky enough to display this at the 'Faith Alive' art and music show sponsored by my college. It was created using gouache paint, cut paper, ball point pen, colored pencil and a splatter technique with a toothbrush. If anyone is interested, I still have the original painting and am willing to part with it for a price.
