Pathetic Beauty


Acrylic Paint on Canvas

Dystopian city a beautiful girl stands in front of a factory with a mask as smoke pours out of stacks. A calm dog and an angry dog are nearby.

This was the first painting I did, in my first studio, after graduating from university. My studio was located in the middle of downtown Saint John. I was obviously having a little trouble adjusting to the urban environment. It is not a self-portrait, but rather a portrait of how I felt.
