The title of of this painting 'Tokyo Blue' is a play on the anime 'Tokyo Ghouls'. In one interpretation, sadness 'the state of being blue' is a ghoul riding on our shadows and interfering with our normal lives. The left side of this image was painting while I was ill and found so many things that made me unhappy.
However, when I recovered, this painting was reworked. The right side is the new version of the left side. This art took a new meaning. Transitions!
Transitions are necessary. Transitions can be painful and put a strain on you. Most importantly, you endure, survive, gain experience and covert all the - to +. Then you level up.
