Soaked Growth (2020)
Digital art

From the artist:
Soaked Growth is a piece I made as a way of coping with emotions I felt during the pandemic while also pouring out my hopes for the future. The title draws inspiration from the idea the plants grow after rain. That though tears and sadness may take over for a time, you can, and should, expect a period of powerful growth in your life afterward. There are many details scattered throughout the piece that are symbolic of different emotions and the idea of growing as a person.
