Congratulations on your DD. I have often seen nothing of any real worth of the DD, but this stopped me in my tracks. It conjures emotions in me of my own losses. I love the composition and the coloring that supports it. Such a great job.
I find it so amazing how the emotions an artist feels as he paints is able to come through to the viewer, sometimes in very powerful and meaningful ways! I am so glad, and I hope it has had a positive effect on you!
This is so powerful, it struck me immediately when I saw it. In my opinion this is true art, one that has the power to shock and make an impression, not one that's based on special techniques and styles. It's so deep. Good job!
