A detailed version of the left diptych image. Originally based on the idea of Terror and Joy, I took some liberties with the theme to create a surreal and slightly autobiographical image.
The left image is an expression of terror or fear and the possibility to grow from that as it merges with the right diptych image.
But don't take my word for it, i may have said to much.
Made in Photoshop CS the original print version is 12"x15" for a combined print size of 12"x15"
