Hot and Cold

This image refers to a philosophy that a friend shared with me comparing life events with water temperatures. If both temperatures of water come out of the same faucet, you can't stop one by plugging the faucet and still hope to enjoy the other. In the same way, in order to experience life's joys, we must be willing to be open to painful experiences as well. They all come from the same source, just as the hot and the cold come from the same faucet. This image exploits my passion for obsessive doodles and tiny details.
