In this still, I was trying to convey the absolute paralytic feeling that completely takes hold of you when you finally hit rock bottom. It’s a stunning feeling of pure dread that grips you, it doesn’t let go unless you get help.
I decided to use a still from a TV show (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) that shows a woman who has just died of natural causes. The feelings you receive during the turmoil of utter depression are extremely similar, you can’t move. You want to end it.
This was another piece in Oils on Canvas with a limited pallet.
