The Perilous Compassion of the Honey Queen
18" x 24" (25"x 31" framed)
Oil on Panel

This painting is about the idea of pouring out the very core of one's self, under the best intention, and it leading to their self-destruction. There are those individuals who cannot be redeemed by benevolence. A salve poured into the darkest caverns of their soul will never be enough to make them whole. There is something necrotic within them that can never be revived. Having a generous nature can lead one into being trapped into an engagement that will cost them their virtue and vitality.
