Simply seeing the thumbnail was enough to fill me with emotion. This is a perfectly crafted piece that says so much.

This painting really speaks to me. Without knowing you, I think the viewer instantly connects with an experience of anguish, pain, and love. Communicating emotions is to me the most beautiful and valuable thing art can do, because it allows you to express yourself and reach out to others at the same time. The mood and colours of the piece are sombre but so soft at the same time, it's gorgeous. The character's body language is just so moving too. Thank you for sharing this with the rest of the world.
