The lady in the wheelchair

A second piece for my MFA thesis. I got to comp up six pieces in class a couple of weeks ago and I believe they are quite successful ideas. I am starting to include some of the concepts that the faculty provided in their lectures and talks. It is making a massive difference in how I create. I have a long way to go, and I am excited about where this path is going.
