Heart for the Hopeless is an abstract painting I made this past spring. It served as a release of the intense emotions I was feeling (depression). I grabbed the canvas and paint and had at it. No brushes were used in this pieces; it was literally handmade.
In depression, I feel like my heart is bleeding out and I cannot stop the blood from flowing out of me, as if it were a grotesque waterfall.
