Artist’s statement

The trees cast shadows on the road
Dappled in shades of dark and light
They seemed reminiscent of my depression
The car rolled through the flickers of sun and shade
Just like my own self
I passed through times of happiness and sadness
And with time, this began to lessen
The afternoon sun shines through.
