“Bursting Out in Pride” framed art

This particular piece is very personal a difficult to part with. It exemplifies what so many LGBTQ people experience. I have been “out” since 2006, however, the biggest epiphany that I’ve had in the process is that “coming out” is a lifelong process. Creating this piece was a joyful experience, as I burst out of the closet into an entirely new life with new friends, new interests, and new perspectives. I hope that the new owner of this piece has the same love of their emergence into a new life as I did.
