Frightened

“Brash!: 12 emotions we share” is a collection of watercolor work on cold press.  This line was inspired by the desire to show the wide range of emotions that people can and really should express.  No one is immune to anguish, and no one is immune to happiness.  Given the proper inspiration, these stories could be told about anyone.

Frightened: Aghast, the body threw itself backward
before the mind could embrace the totality of it all.
Tumbling backward, the mind and face caught up
with the rest of the system.  Tears were next.
