I was commissioned by a friend to create a painting portraying any content and meaning. This painting is the culmination of a requested list of objects/ideas that reflect her interests, and a list of contradicting character traits that float around in my mind. All of those ideas were finessed around the time of Chris Cornell's death; certainly heavily influenced by it. I hope you enjoy the painting, and the progress footage!
