    Last journey

    This is a personal work about the life itself. Everyone has to master difficult tasks in their lives, some are harmless, some may become uncomfortable.

    Thank you!

    Hmmm, when i look at it, i think it looks a little bit to dangerous for the child. Possibly i rework it

    Is the text indicative of something in English or in another language?

    Your English is fine! I meant the text in the painting... but now I see from your post title, (big hint!) that yes, the text in the picture does read "Last Journey".


    Is the little girl dying and crossing into an afterlife?

    "This world" is very beautiful, the hills the sky...

    I felt the same way at first glance, but since I don't know your personal tastes and intention with it, nor how young your intended audience, I didn't say anything. Some successful children's book writers like to shock.

    Anyway, since you offered the question that it might be too dangerous feeling, I agree. Part of it might be that the black letters are so bold and incomplete and they block the beauty of the sunset with sharp, emphatic angles, and that gesturing hand through the door, it all feels ominous like losing one's ability to process information and the fear that goes along with it (in this picture).

    If you want to test something, you might change the font to a script and use a harmonious color that flows with the sky and thus feels more like a gentle voice. That would imply a soft transition from one realm into the other. That's just a possible direction to settle it down if it suits your theme. I was thinking this is dealing with death and not merely a difficult situation, so I may have missed what you wanted to say with the image.

    Just a thought.

    That's a good thought. The theme in the picture is a bit complex.

    No, it should just be something threatening without it really being so.
