The day we started this piece, I was in a mood and, honestly, a little bit of a funk. Truth is, that John and I can be moody sometimes even though some people might think everything seems all unicorns and rainbows. That’s just not real life. So, as I was working through the digital rough draft for this piece (see the second image), I liked the contrast of the pretty flower against the moody face because it began to suggest that things may look pretty on the surface, but if you do a little digging, you may find that there’s a little more to the story. The truth exists somewhere in that middle whitespace area where the outside and the inside collide.
