A detailed version of the right 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 right image is an expression of joy or the transformation of fear into hope.
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 24"x15"

Thank you to the resurgere team for providing three of the integrated textures and smoke:
All other images and textures were photographed and scanned by me.
