Today I am in a thousand percent visual mood.



the words are
in there somewhere
she was only a child ...

this strikes me as haunting. I hope it is a small secret..maybe a crush or a jealosy. But I fear it may be bigger...

It's beautifully composed, and I love the way the colours work subtly together. Very intriguing

I've been browsing your blog (again) and there are so many beautiful images here!

How many feelings you have captured in your picture! You are right "the words are in there"

Pam said...

Your art touches the eyes and the mind. Lovely, haunting poem.

Wow! This is such a cool piece of art! I wish it were bigger so I could get lost in it! The images, the colors, the composition, I love it! It is a poem itself. And yes, as the others have noticed, haunting. I never realized how powerful the words child & dress can be. Something to think more about! Is your pic a collage? How did you do it? I love collaging, but somehow, mine never seem so powerful!

I have no words to say how I feel about this. It is very poignant to me.
