Mourning by thedreamflier Mourning by thedreamflier
Another piece in response to my grandmother's passing. This was the very first thing I painted since she passed. Her favorite holiday was Easter.

What a lovely tribute to your Grandmother. Sometimes it's very hard to start drawing again when we feel deep sorrow. The good thing about being an artist is we can use our art to express the deep emotions that sometimes overwhelm us. This is a beautiful piece of art, and I know your grandmother is touched by your art. Sincerely...Annie

Oh, I just love this! I can relate to this image more than you know; I too lost a grandmother whom I loved dearly and to this day mourn for her loss. This is a very emotional painting. Great job!

Beauty in release...letting go. Mourning? *smiles* The only difference between mourning and a new dawn is u. I'm glad to see you were able to translate your emotions creatively.

Theres so much involved with the loss of my grandma because of her Christ filled faith and how she left. There is a lot that she left in my heart that I can't even begin to say. So now, everything that Christ has told me through my grandmother and further comes through in paint. :)

"he only difference between mourning and a new dawn is u"

Thank you.

I really admire your faith Sara. Even if I don't claim to be Christian, I respect anyone who has such faith as you do. You are certainly a wonderful example for everyone, regardless of their path. You make a fine beacon. *smiles*

I'm sure your grandmother would love this piece. It reminds me a bit of the book I'm reading where the heroine's friend is mourning the loss of her husband. Is it my imagination, or is there a tear in her left eye? ;p

Yes, there is a tear. :) I still cry for my loss, but with a smile because she is with the Lord.

Another beautiful painting! The light in the darkness seems very appropriate for Easter. As someone else said, very elegant, and I love the movement and fluidity in the fairy's hair.

This is very elegant and peaceful. . . I love the hair, the coloring, lighting, and the calm feeling I get when I look at this piece. You have my sympathy for your grandmother. I know how it feels since I have lost grandparents myself. :hug:
