this piece makes me wonder at the back story. Curious as to what you were thinking when you pieced this together. It's poignant without being melodramatic, and I love it. Everything about this is perfect.

There is both pain and beauty interwoven throughout, and such a balance of both that I'm caught with half a breath between the two.

The gesture of attempting to stop the inevitable...a strong hand trying to slow the life seeping out...

I wish I could help her.

In other words...beautiful work. It kinda struck me in the gut.

simply beautiful - the expressions on their faces provoke empathy, and the abstract symbols add to the mood rather than detract from them. Excellent work!

Like everybody here said, this pic has emotion inside! Reminds me to write to my girlfriend that I love her :)
And I like the brushstrokes. I think pics are better when they´re not so polished, I am always most curious about the artistic process, at least the strokes show the painters movement around the piece.

I'm not sure, but I think that's either a De La quote or a Common quote.....please correct me if I'm wrong (and I'm sure I probably am at this point...I've been drinking a little bit tonight!)
