My piece deals with the greater likelihood of developing depression when you have diabetes, and how that lessens your ability to self manage it. I painted on canvas a deep blue and black background to show the depression these patients have. I pastelled an elderly man with a hopeless look on his face on top of the painting. In the background is the symbol for type II diabetes made ironically out of sugar. I kept the picture having a "neutral plus one" color scheme to show the sadness.
