You're going into my bookmarks, stat. Your work is haunting, evocative, and bold, and I winced more than once going through your gallery. The fact that you can provoke such emotional reaction is a thing of which you should be very proud.

Incidentally, I posted on this piece in particular because I have a linoprint Gaia in my gallery whose mood is reminiscent of your own! In may give you a grin to compare the two.

Despite countless warnings people still dream about immortality. What is it that attracts people to immortality? The fear of dying? Not being able to say goodbye? Nothing lasts forever even eternity has its limits. Dying isn't easy but consider that the alternative isn't that much better....With that in mind...great picture!

Starry starry night
Paint your palette blue and grey.
Look out on a summer's day,
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and the daffodils
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
In colors on the snowy linen land

Now I understand what you tried to say to me.
And how you suffered for your sanity,
And how you tried to set them free
They would not listen
They did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now

Smile Remember now?

Well, your scanner ate off a few dozen, right? Memory may serve me wrong, but this did take many, many sleepless hours of the morning to complete. Upload a larger version! Come one, come all, sign the petition to see the little glass bubble world in higher definition! Smile

a friend of mine recently counted the stars in this picture: 1060 ...that is, if she didnt miss any:)

The style is very unique (bah, everyone says that.) There's something very exotic about the lines. (ah, that sounds better Laughing out loud) The amount of detail is fantastic. If I squint just right, I can kinda, somewhat come close to appreciating the amount of work that went into this.

those stars came with a price: my sanity! hehe... glad you like it!

Guest's picture

Hey Sare, you've made it to Epilogue at last! Congratulations. The lady's still as lovely as ever... ah, those stars took ages and ages to finish. I agree - here's to more images!

I wish I could see all those little stars, they look lovely, and the globe looks so shinny! I hope you are going to add more images, soon.

Art at its best.
