“Being very visually attracted to color, this piece immediately caught my eye, but the thing that stuck out to me the most are the different stories each panel portrays; the far left gives you a sense of care and protection, the far right somewhat resembles fear and death, and the middle panel gives you a sense of fear as you look into the eyes of the woman holding the tree branch. Being able to experience different feelings about a specific piece is exhilarating to the viewer and unique in itself. ”
