“impending doom for you

knowing how it all lies out

you could be near yet you are so far

i feel so compelled”

as i am trying to push myself creatively through different painting styles, this series is based on the mismatched vibe i get. it is often difficult for me to push through my boundaries as a person and as a painter, but diving into this creative outlet feels so estranged to me, that is why this path is something i want to continue with. further more, this connects to the development of impending doom and ambivalence in friendships. after moving away from michigan, i felt relieved… but as time passed, i slowly felt friendships drifting apart. i know it was not meant to be personal, but to me, it was. because of this, not only did i try to keep acting upon conversations, but the conversations slowly dissipated and were not reciprocated.
