Fade to Black

Kathy Ouellette's avatar Kathy Ouellette

"Fade to Black" is a mixed media piece about suicide awareness. It is a digital photo transferred to canvas with acrylic paint depicting the slide into darkness. Negative thoughts are written around the edge of the darkness. Most of us have been affected in some way by someone that has taken their own life. On average, there are about 121 suicides per day in the U.S. I'm hoping to bring more awareness to mental health and the warning signs of depression. For help, please call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255 or text Connect to 741741.
