A god gives you to me.

A smile from merciful heaven,
Life will be ours."

Quite an exceptional piece. I'm feeling a mix of emotions flowing from this image. Regret and even sorrow can be read from this piece. However, this does not distract from the pictures overall beauty. The use of coloring in both the background and the foreground image are simply stunning. A great use of detail placed was placed into the facial features. The razor blade cutting into the face with petal falling around it rather than blood is a very interesting concept and was executed greatly. This is nothing less than the work of a true artistic genius and should be recognized as such. Overall, and excellent piece.

I don't know what you've got in your mind by painting such a wonderful image who tells a story about sadness and hurting themselves. The emptiness in her eye with those wide open pupil starring at something what might beyond any imagination. The bloody band-aid and the razor-blade in her hand just tells you what she was doing to herself. Why does a gorgeous woman like her hurt herself so much to get rid of pain that might lay down in her heart.??? Her mouth just opened up to whisper something we don't understand at all. The wonderful green in her eye doesn't recognize what she was doing ... only emptiness and sadness starring at you.
Wonderful colors and one of the best images of yours. I do love every piece of you but this is just beyond any word. Nothing really can describe this piece of art and only the imagination flow from one thought to another.
For this piece I give in every part 5 stars because it let the imagination run and the originality is just amazing.

I thought this was beautiful so I just had to get a closer look. It is simply gorgeous!!! The image is a bit sad but from the bright and cheerful colours you used, it kept your work away from being depressing. Nice colour choices. It's a lovely piece :hug:

The gauze pad is real, and so is the blood. They were glued onto the piece with white glue :nod:
