View Full Version : Wasteland

I know this drawing is dismal but I just drew what I was feeling. 4 of our oldest, most loved rats died along with Clyde, one of my ferrets, and all in a 2 day period. My wife has been having a neurological problem since July of last year that has been totally messing up our lives. To make it worse our internet at home is messed up until Friday and I can get the stuff to fix it.

Very different perspective and I like how you painted that mountain top and the way you did the clouds. Has a little metalic silver paint feel on the cloud. I like it very much. Make me think of those ice glacier period :)

So sorry to hear you are going through such a tough time, dear gms. You have certainly expressed yourself through this painting. To me, it gleams with hope, that above the clouds the sun is still shining. My thoughts and prayers are with you, that you will come through this period and into the lighter times again. Your creativity and skill amazes me!

I'm very sad to hear things are a bit dark and difficult for you, and your wife's health, and hope all will improve soon for you both. Losing loved animals is miserable, as I can attest, but they don't live as long as we do, and we will have to suffer their loss at some stage. Losing a bunch of them like must be very traumatic.

Your painting is from the heart and they are often the best. I will be waiting for one from you next that is more cheerful!! :) :)

You have nooooo idea how telling this forlorn painting is because it truly represents the way
I've been feeling for the last 3 months in not being able to access our Art Rage forums due
to ongoing computer problems.
If EVER there was an emotion on canvas that aptly represents my technical banishment from
Art Rage, your telling work of art aptly evokes the somber mood. Well painted! :D
