Piece description from the artist
"A wishing well and a bolt of electricity." This is a very personal piece that deals with recurring sudden loss in my life. The explosion symbolizes my frustration, pain, and panic, as well as life's unapologetic spontaneity. The title is inspired by the song, "Werewolf" by Fiona Apple; specifically the line, "We are like a wishing well and a bolt of electricity." Like a wishing well, I am full of big hopes and good intentions. But I never know when the lightening will strike again.
