Second painting

Illustration of a personal experience with abrupt periods of calm within an otherwise energetic lifestyle. Figures blend into the crazy background but are interrupted by this calm paynes grey. In a period of not yet understanding one's own identity, the figures are mixed within the fleshy abstractions in the background.
