Description This is an interpretive piece that I did in acrylic. It can be viewed as mournful over heartache and loss but also taken as a rising pheonix from the ashes. An image of strength, and fortitude.

"I gain inspiration from the world and all of the experiences that happen around me. I believe that in all that happens in life, there are stories to be told. Sometimes those stories are put in the spot light, and sometimes they go unnoticed. This is an idea that I incorporate into my artwork every time I put pencil to paper - to tell stories untold, to even the balance. To hopefully shed some light on those willing to see it." -Kim Grier
