Garden of Giants

Tears for Joy in the Garden of Giants
Digital painting

(details and close-ups here )

I had this thought one day about the fact that feelings belong to oneself, and that it was foolish to pretend being able to share. Later I found that maybe, thanks to art, their was a possibility for the sharing to happen.
As an artist, I consider it's my mission to give shape and color to feelings that otherwise are trapped within an individual. With time I turned to be a quite "romantic" person, in the literary definition of the term, i.e. a person who is fascinated by the spectacle of his own feelings.
In the immense diversity of emotions one can feel, I choose to extract a striking and rare one and turn it to spectacle. This emotion is a joy so immense that it makes cry tears; smiling and weeping at the same time, the widest range of behaviors concentrated in one single emotion.

**edit october 2009**
You really have to read the detailed analysis that *sequentialscott wrote about the painting .
It is extremely fluid in the writing, thorough in the analysis, and insightful even for myself. I can't thank him enough for the great honor it was to receive such quality work and honoring attention.
