Very powerful. The expression is enhanced by the choice of colors.

Very brave Jb and as usual fantastic. What is really doing it for me is that red horizon. A coastline of past misery and betrayal. Or is it the crest of a tsunami wave of anguish?

I think of all the sadness, trauma a pain in the person's life which brought them to this point being expressed in that red scar. Whom is it represented by that gash? Murder by suicide?

Jb – Yes, it’s a good thing art isn’t always pretty because then the expression would be dishonest.

The red line on the horizon is so powerful.

Thanks much...
apperciate the fact that you guys were brave enough to comment on this painting...
I can understand why one would shy away, the subject matter is a tough one, but an honest event that happens from time to time.
Thanks again
