Into Pieces

Look forward, basking in the warm glow of the sky.
The life around you hums a song that never ceases.
Ignore the darkness in the corner of your eye --
Just out of sight, the world you love is falling into pieces.

:star: :star: :star:

This painting was sitting around half-finished, collecting dust (literally) for 7 months. I don't know why I was not painting at all during all that time... now that I've picked up the brush again, it seems impossible to stop. A couple of weeks of after-work painting sessions, and voila: we have my latest work.

My version of the dark/light theme, except instead of splitting the page in equal halves, I divided it into things she can see and things she cannot. A bit of a Plato's cave, if you will.

Medium : Watercolor on 140lb Arches Hot Press.
Size : 9 x 12 inches.

Very cool! I love the contrast between light and dark, and even the slight difference I see between the summer and winter. XD LOVE the dress! :)

i love the color contrast between the two sides. she really looks like a flame up against the background. the only thing is I wish she had something in her hands, it looks like she should have something in her lap... almost like she's sewing or something. I really like the piece though.
