Piece description from the artist
The first in a collection of watercolors for the show titled ‘The Mechanics of Life’. I wanted "Illuminate" to represent the light we shine on our surroundings. Each one of us has an impact on the world around us whether we know it or not. Whatever color, vibrancy, or luminosity, we all shine a light that is a reflection of our character and how we are perceived. In my personal opinion, I feel that we need to work harder at lighting further down the paths we choose and become beacons for those whose flames have lost their shine.
