I painted this piece to help visualize emotional insanity. I used vibrant colors to show the intense passion of emotions, scraping the paint to present a scattered mind set. The display of guts is to represent the presentation of pent up feelings. The acrylic pen is used to bring peace back into the chaos, and express the remaining bits of sanity.
