Animal Spirits

JANUARY 27, 2009
Animal Spirits for The Wall Street Journal

John Maynard Keynes calls the agressive confidence that has always driven Wall Street, and therefore the economy... the animal spirits. The animal spirits are in a downward spiral at the moment and so confidence and trust seem to have evaporated.

I like playing with the translucency of watercolor and this image presented a good opportunity for that.
