I can appreciate the symbolism of objects like doors, windows, ladders, or anything that could suggest some sort of transition or movement from one place to another. Of course, using the term transition can conger up several different thoughts or ideas as well. Personally speaking, I think a person is quite irresponsible if they don't allow themself to continually be open to any available emotional, spiritual, or physical transformation. The obvious caveat, of course, is that this change has to be for the better. Change simply for the sake of change is rarely a good idea.
This self-portrait was yet another that I really enjoyed making during this entire project in the sense that the image planted itself in my mind, yet I didn't know what it meant to me until the moment I was making marks on the paper. And as is also the case in many instances, I actually have two or three personal interpretations to this drawing. While it's certainly not my best artwork, I really like what it means to me.
