Original painting in oil and soft pastel on canvas.
"I pretend everything is going to be alright, I try hard to make myself better, but every now and then, those intrusive thoughts just smack the back of my head, make me bleed all over the place. Then I went to the closest off-licence, bought myself a bag of Haribo, walked to a park, closed my eyes as long as i want, feel the breeze of a hot summer day and learn to live with this hopeless pain. And I paint this. 'Close my eye as long as I want'"
