loneliness death poverty indecision pollution foreclosure war racism crime hopelessness spiders constricted spaces rejection old age cancer predatory bankers clowns rejection snakes heights flying doubt the unknown fire thunder failure responsibility water injections dentists germs honesty crowds

Thumbnail sketch for Four Fears. Lately, paintings usually begin with an idea caught in a small sketch like this. A large painting (for me) is in progress pursuing this theme.
