This new one is going in an intense direction. Very loose and active. Working with darks and lights in a strong manner. As the title suggests, this one is dark with the light shining through. I am making all of these recent ones as I am going through a personal transformation, so I have many dark periods where the transformation is difficult and uncertain, punctuated by the light of clarity, new knowledge, and insight. Change is so interesting, in part because it is so inevitable, and in part because it is so necessary to growth and becoming who you are meant to be: your self. What emerges from transition and change in hard won.
