The reason I chose the title for this piece because it was a fitting title for everything I wanted to talk about in this piece.

I created this piece during a time period were I was doing a lot of reflection on a relationship of mine was coming to an end or possible end.

My inspiration in creating this piece was the idea of "the end" and "the aftermath" of everything of a relationship of any kind. Cause when most people think of a "relationship", they think of a romantic one, but a relationship is just constant interaction between two people. So often at times they carry various weights to them depending on how close the two parties involved are.

Curator's Note: The look on the figure's face says it all and conveys the artist's main message: the end of a relationship and the endless thoughts that go along with that.

I am primarily a self taught artist, drawing as long as I could remember, which really isn't saying much. For the most part the only formal or what I consider formal training I've had was my last two of high school, and my years at school going to San Antonio College. Being part of the Graphic and Fine Arts program really just help me develop everything a little more. After school, I pretty much went back to basics and did everything in my sketch books. Eventually I picked up airbrushing again and started adding in watercolor and have been doing it since then.
