Carapace by alifann Carapace by alifann
I named this painting "Carapace" because it reminded of me the the extra lair of protective skin that we put on our selves when we fall in love for example, it is protective but also restricting. There is vulnerable skin underneath that we afraid to show sometimes.

PS. Found this frame at an old vintage store.
