Maddy is my daughter; a funny, feisty, honest-to-a-fault young woman. When I painted this picture she was struggling daily with depression and suicide ideation. She didn’t know why she felt so bad all the time or why she cried every day. She was in her first serious relationship that seemed to be going well and she had a good job that she loved, but on the commute home she imagined what it would be like to drive into oncoming traffic. We were devastated for her and urgently pressed her to see a counsellor. This painting is meant to depict her
