The painting depicts a person suffering from mental health issues such as schizophrenia, insanity, depression, or other mental illnesses. His own mind eats him apart as a result of his sad face with a dripping honey. This is how I've felt at times throughout my life. I wanted to create a visual representation of my inner thoughts and pain. Also, Last year, I was also in a motorcycle accident. My face filled with blood. Rather than painting blood. I use honey to remind people that life isn't always easy, but we must appreciate it. Honey flow is unpredictably variable. It's the same with life. We have no way of knowing what will happen to us the next day. As a result, one must accept it and live in the "Now". Also , It's called aflutter because it's nervously excited of what's going to happen next.
