I could not hope to create something so beautiful as this with my own two hands. I can only hope that my comment was in some small way a proper tribute to this work of beauty. You are a very talented person, and I hope that you continue to be as creative as you are here. Thank you for creating this. It moves the Heart, and brings both Joy and Tears, tears that need to be cried out to help Hearts grieve and rejoice. Thank you again. I do not have the words to continue. May God Love you and Listen to your prayers with Joy in His Heart.

The placement of this image into the emotional category seems very appropriate and I will relay those elements of the creation as I experienced them on an emotional level.
The hands have a tension, the way they are stacked, almost interlocked, self comforting. At first glance it seems as if the hair is stylishly placed, but on reflection, it seems to be placed in preparation of a divine coronation soon to be provided by the distant bird transporting the halo. There is an emotional transformation that occurs when I realize that what is, at first, a seemingly dejected, shunned angel, is really in preparation for something eternally wonderful. Having said all that, I really don't know what attracts me to the image, it seems to be out of my grasp, and too profound for me to completely understand at this time, mysterious. The appeal lingers.

I don't know if you read the description - she gone away before I send the image to her but since I'm spiritualist, I believe that she saw the image from Heaven :smooch:

Oi Mel, eu sou a Dani, amiga do Miguel.
Esta é minha conta de stock, caso você precise de algo, saiba que é irrestrita.

Sobre este seu trabalho, DIVINO, me tocou muito, até porque hoje, dia 27/02 está completando 5 meses que perdi minha mãe para o câncer. Muito lindo seu trabalho e mentalmente, acabei de "dedicar a ela" e sei que ela sabe!

Beijos.

An actor I loved died at the age of 63 because of cancer...it doesn't sound as important as a relative, but that actor really inspired me, and showed me how wonderfull and amazing people can be. It was a real shock when she died- she always lookes so alive, even right before she passed away.
I'm an atheist, but I do believe in a heaven: not a heaven as in another world, but as in the memories and emotions of other people. Just like in this piece, she will live on forever in that heaven <3

Maybe Farrah Fawcett? Because I love her too! :)
She was a wonderful example of courage in this disease... :nod:
You're truly young and you have all your life to know exactly where God is - too many things you need to pass to believe or not... :smooch:

Thanks for your advice :hug:- I might be an atheist, doesn't mean I can't try to have a open mind, right? Maybe God is out there, but I just don't know. In my opinion, it sometimes doesn't really matter because of what beautiful thinks exist, just that they exist :)
