this picture..... very special to me, turned up in a very pivotal time in my life, just before everything wildly change for good and ill. it spoke volumes for me the first time i saw it; i resonate with this work so much, and have tried to capture very similar themes and energy; organic and soulful with raw depth twisted by the gnarled beauty of pain and time ... i could go on and on. the subtlety is perfect to me and i truly appreciate .. it... someone else said love this, living it right now. yess.. it has to be lived , has to be lived. anyway i'm so glad after all these years i finally find out who created it. i love your work endlessly +thanks

I am currently using this amazing piece as an icon to an original instrumental score (work in progress). If you have an issue with this please let me know and I will remove it immediately. If you only knew how aptly this applies to the woman who is currently devouring my soul. Thanks. I hope between us I can hit her where it counts. aaaargh!!!

Hi - this is just to say, I used the title of your amazing piece in a poem of mine, for #TheTitlePage's contest, over here! If you'd prefer for me not to use it, please let me know, and I'll change it immediately. Thank you! :heart:

The wound will draw out what needs the light of day to bloom, from the dark recesses of you.

Would you mind if I got an artist interpretation of the left creature, so I could get it as a tattoo?

HI? WHEN I SEE THIS ARTWORK I WANTED TO WRITE POEM. I'M SORRY FOR GRAMMAR MISTAKES. SO CHECK THIS OUT!

FOR LOVE

WOULD YOU SELL YOUR SOUL FOR LOVE?

A MAN WITH UNTOUCHED HEART,
WHOSE MIND HAS NO DIFFERENCE FROM INNOCENT CHILD,
BLINDED BY TAINTED WOMAN WHO WAS HURT FOR COUNTLESS TIMES …
HIS HEART WAS BURNING ON FIRE …
FIRE WHICH GROWN FROM THE WOMAN’S BEAUTIFUL OUTSIDE,
THE INNOCENT MAN SEDUCED BY THE BEAUTY …
DIRTY DESIRE BLOOMED FROM HIS PURE BODY …
BILLIONS OF SENSUAL SPARKLES EXPLODED INSIDE OF HIM …
NO MORE LOOKING BACK, HE BECOME FEARLESS,
HIS ONLY FEAR WAS LOSING HER …
BUT HE NEVER HAD HER, THE WOMAN NEVER LOVED HIM …
BUT WHO SAYS ONE SIDE LOVE ISN’T “LOVE”? …
THERE WAS LOVE SPREADING ALL OVER THE TWO OF THEM,
BUT THE WOMAN NEVER FELT IT,
ONLY ONE WHO WAS IN LOVE WOULD FEEL IT …
HE WAS DESPERATE TO DO ANYTHING TO SHARE HEAVEN WITH HER,
HE WAS READY TO SELL HIS SOUL FOR LOVE …
HE GAVE HIS ALL,
BUT “HIS ALL” WAS “HER NOTHING” …
THE POOR MAN LOST HIS HEART FOREVER …
THOUSANDS OF TEARS FROM HIS OLD SAD EYES WHERE FLOWING DOWN THE RIVER ENDLESSLY …
ABANDONED MAN WHO’S IN HELL OF DARKNESS …
NO ONE KNOWS, NO ONE CARES …
EVEN THE ANGELS FROM THE SKY DOESN’T CARE,
FORGOTTEN BY GOD … … FROZEN BY SADNESS,
HE … … … … … … . .
