Essence Series sketch from OneTonGoldfish: In Search of the Tangible Dream

“I decided to build a series from a truly selfish perspective, completely opposite from Imagination Series, and one I would find very hard to face...When I gradually started to paint, I knew what I wanted to achieve. I first pulled from the things I remembered, things that moved me. I was determined to bring deliberate reasoning to the foreground. I kept the stained silhouettes intact on the canvas, but this time I pulled in the horizon lines from Creation Series, giving the silhouetted memories a place to rest. Bound by time and the distance of a journey, not only mine, but that of any viewer.” 

-Justin Garcia, OneTonGoldfish: In Search of the Tangible Dream
