Oil on Canvas
The phrase, "burning the candle at both ends," that spans the piece captures the dedication to design and connects the 2 sides. Working throughout the day to earn an income and continuing to work into the night to progress and apply the skills that were developed through college. The phrase embodies the anxiety over your dedication to your craft and finding a career in the field you studied. It surrounds you, fills your thoughts and manifests itself in everyday things. Through time and persistence you hurdle the gap and find the sunrise to the next phase of your life.
