As of late I'd been feeling a bit weighed down by my artwork, pressured by it. I realize it may have had to do with some of the constraints I imposed on myself regarding subject matter and commitment to a 'themed' show. So I decided to throw that all out the window (at least for a bit) and just get back to letting unfiltered inspiration guide me. I had begun a piece featuring a lifeguard, but put that on hiatus to work on something else. I find it curious how I metaphorically loosened up my 'suit & tie' and ended up creating this piece.
Still a bit more to go but the figures are just about done, and I am having fun again!
