This is the third and last painting in what ended up being a miniseries about my anxiety and depression. The first was this squirrel unraveling her brain, and the second was this figure in a hazmat suit. Originally, I was trying to capture all of my feelings in one piece, but, as I worked and reworked the concept, I realized that my anxiety and depression are multifaceted and require multiple images. You can watch the making of this painting.
