"Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late"~ Benjamin Franklin

       This painting shows a skeleton holding his hands up to his chest, while they are covered in blood. It was originally created based on a scene from the book Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad when Kurtz reminisces on all of the horrible things he has done throughout his life as he is dying; his last words were, "The Horror! The Horror!"

       This painting aims to express this scene and the idea that sometimes we only realize the mistakes we've made once it is too late.
