Downward Spiral

D.R.Downward spiral 29.5 cm w by 80 cm h webThe painting Downward Spiral is about a person I knew that had a mental illness and unfortunately self-medicated with a combination of drugs, alcohol, and prescription drugs. When he was correctly using his medication he was healthy, however when he felt good he would choose to stop taking his medication and would slip back into alcohol, drugs and the unhealthy associations that go with it, quickly becoming a crazed and paranoid person until help would come and the cycle would begin again.
