This imagery is related to an event which happened about four years ago, and how it changed my life forever. I was hit by a motor vehicle while riding my bicycle. The result was a Traumatic Brain Injury (my second to the right frontal lobe). Some of the immediate and continuing effects include loss of math skills, greatly diminished interpersonal/social skills, loss of taste and smell, seizures, emotional instability, depression, sleep disorders, loss of self esteem… I could no longer work as a carpenter/contractor. My life had been physically, mentally, and emotionally torn apart, a bomb had been dropped into my brain. Although different from the past,
I was still able create art. The remainder of my life is dedicated to my art making.
