Sometimes you feel like you want to assume the fetal position and die but there is more reasons to live than die. On to the next chapter. :))

I’m with you there Annie. Maybe bring a good book and a throw! :)))
Oscar’s quote is so true too. :))
The original elegant savage! He is my hero. :)
Why not? Thank you Rebecca. :)

John, sheer brilliance and beauty on your part. “In Utero” (known Latin term)is a fitting title along with Wilde’s infamous quote on life for this FANTASTIC artistry of yours. Sometimes I feel this way…LOL…I raise my fine merlot to you. Peace and love be with you always…you so rocketh, Lisa =) XO
Hi Lisa, I was trying to convey an image that reflects my current state of mind and the image of a male youth who is at the threshold adult life cocooned in a alien like world is a fitting one. And Oscar’s quotes always do it for me. It’s like he knew to answer anything and everything. Peace and Love too. John D xo
#SUPERFANTASTIC …VERY IMPRESSIVE….( GLI AFORISMI DI OSCAR WILDE SONO FAVOLOSI) IL TUO LAVORO È STUPENDO…

I’m still thinking about your Mona Lisa with sunglasses! Beautiful work! :)
ahhh but he looks very serious and sad, thank god for Oscar i say ..he s writings / epigrams etc helped pull me out of some very sad and serious times ;)) very cool drawing John !
I always look to his quotes about life and death. Like no other writer except for maybe Shelley or Lord Byron, his quotes resonate a certain magic. Many thanks for the illustrious comment Trudi. :)
