Tribulation is the third piece in my four-part series, “Trials.”

While working at Acuity Insurance there was a contest for employees to create and draw Flat Pat the Gargoyle. I entered this contest, the executives of Acuity voted, and I was given first place. Because of this contest, my artistic talent caught the attention of the CEO of Acuity, Ben Salzmann. Ben is a known art fanatic and likes to decorate the Acuity building with various works of art. After the contest, Ben reached out to me and was interested in seeing my portfolio. I met with him and he hired me to do this four part series.

The “Trials” series was to be four drawings, each of a woman, each depicting a strong emotion, and each black and white with some color. Tribulation was to be a recreation of another one of my pieces, The Angel That Cried. I specifically chose blue to be her wing color because the fourth piece in this series, Forever Bound, uses orange as the color and orange is a complementary color of blue.

Each one of the “Trials” pieces are 30″x40″ for the originals and are currently framed and on display within the Acuity building. Due to this being a commission piece, only prints of it are available.
