I do not consider myself middle class at the moment. I moved in with my parents three months ago, so I can't put myself in the middle class yet. I look forward to gaining my independence, leaving my parents house and joining the real world as an artist as soon as possible.
This is a watercolor painting I recently finished. The piece represents the mental state of many graduates - high school and college - for the past three years. Many young people either find jobs they are overqualified for or struggle to find work. Whatever the scenario, this age group is weary and losing the confidence it once had in school.
