Behind every creation there is a certain intent. This piece was intended to portray my feelings about love. At the time I was driven to produce a piece the graphically portrayed the loss side of the ledger. The fact that love opens one up to feeling excruciating pain and loss. Producing it proved to be cathartic and meaningful. However, the dawning of a new understanding led me to modify this work to focus more on the possibilities and meaning of human love. Despite the failure of a long relationship and several recent life threatening accidents involving my children, I now see, appreciate, and understand more about the impact that heathy deep relationships can have on our lives.
