The goldfish syndrome

Acrylic on canvas

The colors and the expression are all playful and fun, but the pink "plants" actuall spell out "dementia"(first I thought to go with alzhemier, but I changed my mind). The whole piece is supposed to be hard to "piece together" much like a person who suffers from dementia/alzheimer have a hard time putting together information/memories.
And of course, the title and the image refers to the poor short-term memory of the goldfish.

Morbid fact#1

This colored pencil is part of a set that was given to me, years ago, by a man that once chased my mom around town with a knife.
