Follow The Fish by mckadesinsanity Follow The Fish by mckadesinsanity
Personal piece. Its been a work in progress for years, and I finally found the time this week to finish it up!

There's a personal story behind this one, actually. Basically, the fish symbolizes the things and people that kept me going and led me out of a difficult time.

Very intense piece. What wonderful detail, and the bit of what it represents to you helps to let ones imagination take over. Beautifully done.

Her facial expression holds so much pain, but it's very beautiful. I like that the fish symbolizes hope, too! :)

I really Like the expression on the face and the symbolism with the fish and the lurking beasts in the background with the red eyes.

Very beautiful and certainly full of meaning, I wonder "who" are the 2 beasts with evil eyes on both sides. The fish with this light is purity, very beautiful :heart: I hope the difficult time is over, really !

THe fish of life or of hope. To render the darkness gone and to hold what is most presious but life being so cruel that when you reach to touch it, it scatters away leaving you touching glass. May not be what the picture meens, but it came to me that way. I like it. ^_^
