I wanted to try something a little different with the shadows – not just the shading that comes with curves and shaping – but the shadows inside us. I had already done the heart so I went to the next source of determination, and that’s the brain. What I was trying to show with this is the dark and light side that we all have inside us. The choice, the decision, the action that follows, they all fall into one side or the other.
When my sister, Julianna, first saw this she asked if that’s really how our brains looked – with a dark side and a light side. It would be so cool if they did! But no, this is a very loose depiction.
I do believe I am happy with this one, too. 🙂
