No fairy tale has a happy beginning. Before the happy ending, traumatic events occur that inspire a narrative painting. A story with emotional and personal imagery is louder than a spoken word. Every adventure faces challenges but it’s all about how one will shape by it. Through the unpredictable nature of watercolor, the intensity of the abstract stain mimics what the past has left. The black ink outlines the surrealistic landscape that speaks for the hell that exists in a mind. A tale makes residence in ones soul through the relation to ones experience; it is a portal for a being to transport through dreams that reality has mutated using metaphors and symbolism. As one travels through the library of narrative worlds, a soul will find the looking glass. In order to understand a story, it must be lived backwards. But to tell it, it must be lived forwards.
