Apocalypto Magnifica is one of my first paintings I've ever done, and is also a "trial and error" piece on Acrylic media. When I was painting this piece I imagined what it would be like not to manifest a storm, but to have come across a storm and have the will to wish it away. Everyone faces challenges in life which may seem impossible to overcome, and usually the rewards of facing and conquering these challenges teaches us more about ourselves as well as our strengths than what we've ever assumed before. It is about not giving in to doubting our strengths and finding that we surprised ourselves with the strengths we have.
