The artist's burden. She was never satisfied with what she created and this made her seek inspiration in places not yet explored. Dark places. That's where the pursuit of perfectionism took her. The Candle Painting would be her last and she knew it. Day after day the layers of her brush physically hurt her. Her mind was slowly shattered into pieces of her own consciousness. Staining the ground with her being with every brushstroke, increasingly destroying herself for the sake of her art. Until finally, all that was left were piercing blind eyes framed by the long velvet gown. A sick and poetic degradation, the true definition of a masterpiece. Less human and more art.
