Here is my final piece for the 8x8 brief.
I started to work on my white elements on the last post but then ruined the whole thing! So it was back to the drawing board and actually, I think that ruining my other work was for the best. I think that the grey background represents a storm and Joy's life (protagonist) is very much a representation of a storm. The yellow elements represent the light in life, such as the liter joy that Joy brings to Franks life and the outcome at the end of the story in a new life.
