Artwork Description

This sad rat wanted to go home, but he got too tired, and will die en route. (Inspired by lyrics from Verdi's "Aida")

oh, poor little fellow. can't you write him a happy ending?

the wispy bits of foliage look very nice indeed...they remind me of weed underwater. gives the peice a very otherworldy type feel. for me, at least. heh.

Again u are seduceing my eyes Socar. poor little rat...but death is a path we all must take...guess the rat found his "path" a little bit too soon =(

This picture makes me so sad! I agree with Chloe Pogson in that it reminds me of my rats who have passed on. But its still nice to see a fellow rat lover who can paint them so beautifully

Oh my gosh! This picture is so sad....The way the rat is holding their little paw out, like they want to go on but just can't....strangely it saddens me...maybe it reminds me of my own rats that have passed away...

Great image, Socar. BTW, I saw one of your pieces in the new Spectrum (#10)... congratulations!

Aw. A little rat bikkhu. I'm not familiar with the lyrics, but... looks like he's already travelled a long way. Maybe he at least learned something before he passed on.

Art at its best.
