I'd like to share that conceptually, this is very much a collaborative work. I had things set and was about 3/4 the way done when I talked to my son about it. He has Autism and really liked the idea and he jumped into the piece as I was describing it to him. He said, "Oh, no mom, it shouldn't be that color... it should be this color because I think of this with one color and I think of that with the other color." He also suggested the mist brushes I used and really emphasized how the color of the bird should be with the background and how he felt the background should look... so thank you to my son for this work, for without him, it wouldn't have come out as well as it did! :heart:

He said eternity..

Hold on tight,
As we say our last goodbyes
And this is, a moment that changes our whole lives.
So here we are,
This is the end,
But all that dies
Is born again...
The scars will still remain
From the ashes, I will rise again.
In this Moment.

EVANESCENCE - Going under
To resume, why, how or when was has this child succumb to her/his destiny, was it a promise? a temptation? maybe a higher power choice?

This isn't a typical concept when most think of the a fallen one. Such usually conjures up thoughts of angels and other fantasy concepts, etc. For me, I really wanted to approach this and break away from this stereotype and went with English social idioms such as "Falling apart", "Falling into despair" and "Falling to Pieces"  In this, I took the western psychological state of a "Fallen One... a Child that has fallen into all the idioms I previously stated. I wanted a psychologically bleak landscape because when a person is suffering from so much, their world view is bleak, nothing means what it used to. It all feels empty and shallow and things that once held meaning are just lifeless, abstract concepts floating around in the human psyche but with no real attachment. In such a state, a person often feels trapped, as if being sucked in and held under, despite attempts to escape... there is no hope .... but hope does make its way in.. brave, daring and marvelous hope. It can survive the harshest environments and the worst conditions. When all feels lost and a person feels that they will never nor can ever escape... remember nothing ever stays the same and that though it may not feel like it now, there is always hope. :love: :heart:
