It's Empty Like Blue Roses is a part of a series titled Recovery. This series of works were inspired by the events of 2008, a very intense year for me personally. My father is disabled, single and I am his only child. He is my co-worker, partner and one of my biggest fans. In October of 2008, he suffered from a bleeding ulcer, addiction to prescription drugs, and gal bladder problems. I learned many things through this experience, not knowing at the time that things only got so bad because they were in the transition of becoming so good. These works express life, nutrition, soul food, simplicity and the absolute beauty of Recovery--recovery from anything.
