Fear does appear differently for every individual. Here, it appeared as a naked maestro, sitting in front of her orchestra in an extensive, intricately detailed but colorless theater. The essential meaning of this metaphor is that having the instruments, opportunities, and a stage to perform- life itself - creates all this potential yet it can easily be held back by fear. I kept attention to the pose of the maestro to create an exhausted look, still coloring only her even though the background is vast and detailed. The spiral carries the sign that the individual has the energy itself. The concept and the artwork are dark. However, if there is a splash of color, there is hope.
