The Escape Artist

This little snowman has had enough of being cooped up inside his safe little snow globe. He would rather brave the exciting freedom of the unknown rather than live inside his glass house, however secure it may have been.

I painted this little scene as an invitation design for a show I was in last year titled, "Escape Artists". This painting sold shortly after the show to a young man going through a very difficult time in his personal life. Having recently resolved to live his life differently, he identified with this snowman's pluck and courage.

Sometimes truly living your life means breaking out of your globe.
