Sunrise Lament: Swan

Follow me on facebook :D - [link]

Here is my latest Bird Girl painting - painted in acrylics on a reclaimed plywood board measuring 43.5 x 65.5 cm (it was very heavy haha!)

This painting symbolized for me those delicate moments where things have been going so bad for so long that you can do nothing else but smile, even if its through the tears.
When I first started painting her, it wasnt intended to be this way, but the more I developed her face I felt the meaning in it.
I think perhaps weve all felt this way. The sun is rising, it is a new day, you know it will be exactly the same and you just chuckle to yourself. The beauty in the misery.

Total time spent: 43 hours and 35 minutes

I hope you like her!

This is absolutely gorgeous!

I can relate to the meaning - no, I'm not the kind of person who just thinks she's tortured but isn't. I'm the kind of person who has had genuine hardships in her past...I'm not saying I don't have a good life, because I do, and I count myself lucky.

I just feel that you're right, everyone feels this way at some point.
