an oldie but a goodie

I painted this on the beach in los angeles on thanksgiving day alone and depressed. I tried to live out there and it wasnt working, Im not an LA guy. At first I wanted to paint an ocean/ beach scene but this came out. I remember a stranger came by and looked at it and said "holy shit" "I like that"...he said he thought I was painting a happy scene of santa monica, the ferris wheel. I was painting my own darkness. the shadow. Watercolor is a bitch, but hit it right and she sings.

I wished I never sold this
