ATC-GOODBYE FOREVER



I am still running behind - seems like I am getting to everything later and later.
That is what happens when you have to share your computer with your hunnie!

Well the card above is my rendition of how someone feels when there is a good bye involved with someone they love!
I love the gothic outfit the girl is wearing -just reminds me of the young people I see around.
I like the way it turned out. Even tho it is a sad topic - it makes me feel like I have delivered a message through my art...that is what I am trying to achieve.
I think black and red are very dramatic colors when used together.
Both colors invoke strong emotions on their own - and together they are dynamite!

Did you ever have those moments that made you truly sad when you had to
say good bye to someone who meant something to you?
This is my entry for today's AEDM....made it to the 11th day mark!
Thanks for stopping by and looking!

I get such strong feelings of sadness when saying goodbye. It is such a struggle. And I suppress those feelings because I have a hard time being vulnerable in front of people. This piece totally exemplifies those fears, for me. Great job. ~Sara

Ellie! It's a beautiful card! So fitting for Veteran's Day! I have had to say toooooo many goodbyes in my nearly 55 years and it never gets easier! The older we get the more people will leave our lives..but the other side of the coin is that we have more joys...new family members added...babies born, new friends, etc. So, I guess there's some balance there after all!

Oh yes Ellie I have....a couple of times already and always again when my friends living in the US come over for a home visit and have to leave again for going 'home'. Thanks to the Internet the world got smaller, but hanging out in person is so much different and it makes me sad that there is not enough time to do it......thanks for sharing this ATC, it spoke to me in every way.
Smiles, Anke ;)
