Bryce's daughter Frida experienced a serious sleep regression just before she turned 5 years old. The reason? She was scared of the dark.
Nearly everyone has experienced this fear. Frida told her dad that the only thing that would make her feel better was to have one of his paintings in her room, because it reminded her that her daddy would protect her from the dark. Bryce placed "Self-Portrait with Frida" in her room, and Frida said that the cactuses helped her get back to sleep.
This piece shows the scared child in all of us, along with the orange barrier of protection we receive from those who keep us safe from the dark.
