These 8 pieces were a series I painted in 2014 for a show at Lequivive in Oakland. I was going through a mess of major life changes and exploring both how embracing dark moments can bring huge emotional and personal growth. That there are specs of color that shine through. Undulating waves of the two, dark and light that make up our experiences and how we move through them. I continued this theme in many pieces beyond this.
