Scene - Joe saves a flower after being diagnosed with a fatal brain cloud. Joe Vs the Volcano
Oil painting 15.5 X 35"
I really love the fact that no one ever pics a "movie poster" scene. This one is when Joe is going back to work after being diagnosed with a lethal brain cloud. On the way he notices a flower that's growing up through the cracks in the parking lot and has been trampled. He stops to pick the flower up and try to save it. What I never noticed before it that while the flower looks good, it has no leaves. With no leaves the flower is really dying or dead. Makes a perfect metaphor for Joe later being offered the chance to "go out like a hero." I'm also a firefighter, so I've got a soft spot for Joe's story.
