This painting is about transitions, about leaving behind the darkness and awakening to the light of a new day. Life it is all about shifts, about changes. It is our attitude as human beings that make those transformations meaningful or not. Being awake, aware, conscious, and mindful about life in a sensible assertiveness is something that I am looking for. This painting reflects my desire to inspire the viewer to be wakeful and attentive to life. I want to inspire the viewer to revive, take action, and to make something out of every moment instead of existing in a latent manifest.
