Masked.

Behind everything, there lies a story.

 

While attending a bereavement camp, we had the opportunity to express what grief felt like for us in an artistic way. I chose to paint this mask.

 

This is the mask I wore ever since the year that changed my life.

It's split down the middle to signify the battle I had between those two emotions.

To appear happy on the outside, but be filled with sadness on the inside.

 

So, for three years, this was my life. And I want you to know that within that time, I was both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.
