Bittersweet by nell-fallcard Bittersweet by nell-fallcard
Sun. Moon.
Man. Woman.
Opposites.
Attraction.


Love.


Warm. Cold.
Coming. Leaving.
irreconcilable differences...


They love each other. They need each other. They cannot conceive existence without each other.
Yet still... they cannot be together.


... but they can always be friends :D

Love... sometimes difficult .. or some loves just get drifted away from each other by life and moving... but they never forget each other.... the feel of someone can last forever... life can drift people away ... mives and the heart pines so deeply for that person....

I love this picture, it gave me a sudden flash of inspiration whe I first saw it and I had to write a story. It's called The Tale of the Sun and the Moon [link]
I hope you like it and I have, of course, linked to your page.

The flame and the hair detail on the Sun character is breathtaking but the most striking part is how the Moon character is actually part of the moon, rather than a whole person like the Sun. Almost as if she is not complete without him.

So beautiful; I especially love how you drew the moon.
Your intricate detail and vivid color use are incredibly inspiring, I adore everything about this piece.
The clouds are amazing, as is the male's body.
Absolutely gorgeous work!

:giggle: Ow, hehe I've got an eye for this little (hope not so little anyway;)) detail :D It's just me - a pure 100% woman :giggle: Beside it this art warms my heart up showing the entire contrast and neverending ballance between man and woman at the same time. I've made the painting about the relation between man and woman as between earth and fire forgetting about this nice allegory you used here. Thank you very much for the new inspiration :hug:

All the best for you, tallented lady!
