Oh you have no idea. Ha, because of things that have happened lately in my life, I can so relate to this. Not in a sad way, no not at all. But in a hopeful way. A man I look to very often as the person who would urge me on when I begin to wonder if things are just not worth fighting for or hoping for... He’s not here, not physically, but he's not dead. And I'll see him someday, and he'll be new again, and he'll be smiling and he'll hold me and I'll tell him how much he means to me and how he never even knew. This is beautiful. C:
I feel as if the elk is helping to breathe life back into a world that was dead with the cold of winter, encouraging things to blossom and grow with the heat of his breath and strength of his call. The concept is a truly beautiful one.
Thank you! This is an idea I've had rattling around in my head for a while and finally got up the gumption to take it on this weekend. I knew that I would be painting lots and lots of leaves and it was going to take a long time to get the look I wanted.
Many pain pills where taken in order to make my complaining spine behave so I could work on this and get it finished.
