This was done for Epilogue's "Season of Renewal" competetion, with artists creating what comes to mind when thinking about the concept of renewal. I chose to do something symbolic- not unlike the celtic myth of the selkies, or a snake shedding its skin. I think the theme is pretty straigt-forward, so I won't elaborate.
I haven't got a snowflake's chance in hell of winning, but I really don't care anymore. This piece has deep personal significance to me, and I have impressed my harshest critic (myself), so I am content.
I was thinking I might add some more detail, then again, I could get over-zealous and wreck the piece completely...
This piece is dedicated to anyone who is starting a new phase in their life.
Oh yeah, and I couldn't fit the whole piece onto the scanner, so check any updates on this to see the whole thing.
