Portfolio > The birth of light into the dark forest of creatures

Acrylic paint, pencil, charcoal, wax crayon, ink and enamel spray paint

the creatures down in the velvety black water start to move forward,
drawn to the glistening light reflecting off the waves,
within each soul a slumbering spark ignites,
a longing for the light
in a fever,
they crowd
grasping things out of the shadows to examine
reveling in the world around them.
reaching and clawing for the light,
surrounding and overwhelming the being holding it
