I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)

    I relate so strongly to this image,
    it scares me
    haunting and yes
    for me beautiful xoxoxo

  • I think all artists and poets are somehow attracted to the dark, isn’t that were all art comes from? Glad you like it. :-) xx

    oh you’ve done tt again!!!! wow Sybille I cannot believe your talent and I cannot get enough of this, cannot look at it close enough, need to see all details!!! it is so haunting and so the heavy, dark weighted feeling of my poem! once again I am so honored! awesome work – thank you so, so very much!!! hugs! xoxoxoxo

  • Shar, I am soooo glad you like it. I always worry when I post something that illustrates someone else’s thoughts. I am so relieved that it works for you. Your poem was the spark to set this off and I am so grateful to you to create this spark for me as I think it made me create something very special. :-) xxx Thank you!
