A Light in the Darkness

This piece was entered into WWA Gallery's I Belive in Unicorns II group show in February of this year. It recently sold to a mysterious buyer whom the gallery informed me wished to remain anonymous. Anyone who knows me and my work might question why I would enter a group show about happiness, rainbows, sunshine and horny equines. When WWA initially contacted me about submitting a piece it wasn't actually planned as another Unicorns show. Originally it was slated as a tribute to Bob Ross; a landscape painter, philosopher, and unofficial Jedi master. Unfortunately this show would have stepped on the toes of another gallery with the same idea to use that theme, so WWA had to switch things up. Although this piece is thematically a departure from my greater body of work, I still had some fun trying to represent happiness within a world of darkness.
