Top cock of the woodland stump - w/snake in grass. Dated l982. On this day. I would have been 42 years old. A period of creativity for me. I had been sober for some months and my work, my intensity was improving. It didn't last. Within a few years I was cushioning reality again with mary jane and booze. The piece below - titled "Fear" while done during this same period of sobriety, was what I was feeling inside. I knew my fall was coming. I just didn't know when. It is my take on Munch's "The Scream".
