In Man's Land

This series of paintings belong to the idea of "In Man's Land." They are part 2 of my previous series "No Man's Land," which I worked on from 2008-2010. This series is evolving and is about feeling accepted where you are in your life right now. The insecurities of contemplation and doubt have softened into having destination and a path to follow. "In Man's Land" stands stronger and determined to belong no matter where you may be in your life right now or the world.
