A blow to an innocent spirit - 28th of November, 2019

A blow to an innocent spirit

The two pictures on the page depict to me between 2017 and 2019 a shattering of innocence of a sorts.

Not my own personal integrity, but rather a view of the world that was once bright eyed, possibilities are real, hope is plentiful and opportunities exist abundantly.

The first picture displays that by its being blissfully unaware of how low in skill it was, and its odd choices of colours and general brightness.

The second displays in contrast the closing off of hopes and dreams. The dying of possibility and opportunity. The change from an innocent wide eyed look at the world to the realisation of a coldness and bleakness of existence.

It does so by moving from childlike brushstrokes and colour choice to a more grey, staid, beige world.

This follows my own personal progression as a testimony to the journey I've taken, much like a fresh recruit at basic training to a regular infantryman who is merely surviving the daily shelling and finding ways to keep alive.
