On the surface, this piece, entitled, "We Can Look Up", illustrates the movement and progression…clouds; how they meld together, come apart, change shape, and weather the storm and the calm thereafter. The cloud inspired visuals act as a metaphor for life and love. The natural high and feeling of invincibility experienced when in love, how that might change the way things are perceived, and how easy it is to fall from that "cloud" into harsh reality and heartache. Through the inevitable "storm" eventually comes the peace, serenity, an acceptance of a love lost.Read More
