Blue Eyes by thedreamflier Blue Eyes by thedreamflier
The image of Father should be a comforting, protecting, secure, passionate, sincere, humbling, and most importantly always loving one. Sadly so few feel this way about their fathers in todays world. I know my Father, and he is all those things and more. He never fails me.

This painting is to symbolize the "image" of Father. It is also a curiosity of my imagination to see my boyfriend Sterling holding a baby. ;)

I love how the wings taper off into translucency at the ends; it makes them seem all-encompassing in a comforting manner.

this peice would make a wonderful print. it would probably sell very well. its simply beautiful. it truly seems like a guardian angel watching over all the worlds children and granting them hope. i love it. it reaches out to those who have been abused by their families. it gives them hope and lends them the idea of serenity. this peice makes me think i deserve a loving family especially by the fathers. (this is coming from one who escaped such a situation by being adopted by a loving family but was not unscathed by it.) :glomp:

Beautiful, the colourful wings and flowers are my favourite part about this one :). The idea of the special relationship between father and son is really shown here. It's sad how people lack that relationship, I know I do, but its great to see that many people do experience the comfort, security and love that is found there.

The concept is perfectly done. It looks just like a young father, holding his child for the first time. I have a picture of my dad holding me in the hospital, and this reminds me of that. We have been blessed with amazing fathers.
