The concept of “The Advocate” has been important to me throughout this whole series as it is the reason I began the series in the first place. This is my second attempt at painting this piece. The first one was done early on and I have since improved my skills and my motivations. I wanted it to be optimistic and really focused on the Advocate. It was a hard decision to repaint an entire painting, especially at the very end, and I had to shove myself every step of the way. Isn’t that the way this whole thing goes though? But here I am, one year and 11 paintings later feeling hopeful and very proud to say IT IS DONE!
