Susi, it takes courage to produce work of this power. The fact that you did not include the bottle also allows the picture to speak to so many people who have experienced a desperately dark moment in life - for whatever reason. Many of us, I'm sure, can recall what appeared to be a completely hopeless situation - when everything seemed totally devoid of colour, hope and purpose. Yet, there is light at the end of the tunnel and when you reach this light you realise just how much beauty there is in life. I think this is why art is so powerful. It possesses light, hope, colour and purpose. So, this painting makes you think and think very hard. Congratulations on your bravery and for this masterwork. Voted.

Wow Anthony, thank you. I'm humbled by your words. I don't know if my work is brave, but it is definitely cathartic. When I put my worst possible image of my past reality out there for all to see, it can't hurt me anymore. It gives me power. All the skeletons have left the closet. Thanks again for making my day. Also, I enjoyed your paintings. They are beautiful escapes.

Well John, I know this series is the work that I am most proud of. It means the most to me. When someone else is moved by it, it means more than anything...thank you so much for all your kind words.

To face the reality of being dead in a bottle is not an easy thing to cope with. My battle was one that took me to the very brink more times than I can possibly relate. In the end, I felt the robes of the reaper brush my skin one too many times and decided to let that bottle drop to the floor. I walked away and never looked back. This work is worth its weight in gold... you know that don't you?

Thank you Will, I enjoyed checking out your page too.
