JackThis painting draws from the childhood nursery rhyme, "Jack and Jill".
Jack begins his journey with the best of intentions. He skips merrily along with his female companion but, as we all do at times, he stumbles and falls. His shoulders slump as his confidence fades and the darkness of his mood is reflected around him. He has realized that the very object that exemplifies his worth lies broken at his feet. There is nothing left to do except run to the safety of home and climb into the warmth of his bed, the last place of acceptance. In this rendition, Jack hides his face in shame with a rabbit mask from his favorite fairy tale and wishes for more time to make things right.
