I was not afraid of many of things I would be leaving behind. Things like past jobs, past friends, past experiences, etc. Those were things I could do without, and would prefer a new beginning elsewhere. Of course, I would also miss my family tremendously. However, the artwork "Sadness" represents someone else I feel reluctant to leave behind -- my lover. This artwork shows that, while a sad woman can be beautiful, sadness dulls the colors from life, distinctly hers and mine if I leave.
