This image holds significant personal meaning as it marked the beginning of a new chapter in my life, following the end of a fifteen-year marriage. It serves as a poignant reminder that had I not made the decision to leave, this artwork may never have come to fruition. On a summer evening, I attended a Blues on the Green concert, riding my recently acquired bicycle after exchanging it for a car. Along the way, I passed a burger place in downtown Austin and decided to stop for a meal. As I turned from the cashier line, I caught sight of a row of college students perched on bar stools.
In this image, my intention was to capture the hauntingly distorted light emanating from the foggy window of the burger place. I sought to portray the convergence of two contrasting emotions: the fear of venturing into the unknown after leaving a familiar and comfortable life, and the realization that happiness could be found in embracing that uncertainty. This moment served as a powerful realization that I could find fulfillment and contentment in living life on my own terms.
