"This piece literally marks the end of my first year of painting," says Bryce. "I finished it on March 9, 2022, one year to the day that my first piece, 'Hematoma,' was completed. 'Hematoma' was a fast, freehand version of the David. 'Year One' was measured, and was meant to show me, more than anyone else, how I had improved in that timeframe.
"Beyond the similar markings from my first piece, there is a focus on clarity, emotion, and detail. In addition, the head is detached from the statue. Nothing shackles it to the body anymore. I'm allowing my mind be free. I am giving myself the creative freedom to paint what I want to paint, and pursue this dream into year two, year ten, and year twenty."
