My final high-school project for art class.
Finished in April, 2006
Acrylics on board.
It measures 2,55m x 1,30m (roughly 8'4'' x 4'3''....and I'm 161cm tall, you do the math) and took me 2 months of hard work to finish.
Obviously there's a lot of symbolism in this. The most important is the thick, green vein that leads from the heart, through the body, out the head, around the arm and into the flower that bleeds.
