Before it started.
First part of a series of paintings I made between autumn 2004 and spring 2005, that shows stages of suffering.
That time, was the worst in my life. I suffered from anxiety, panic attacks, depression, self harm and suicidal thoughts 24/7.
My teacher saw an old doodle in my sketch pad, and told me I should do a painting of it. And then I figured it would be better with three paintings.
So here is stage one.
Oil on stretched canvas, 50x50 cm.
