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. :-)

    wonderful!! never give up there is no such thing as end of hope!! just have to be yourself and look at things in a different light.

  • LOL The title comes from the Diptych. The grave is “the end of all hope”. I am sure it comes from some poem or other. Can’t remember which though. Wasn’t a personal opinion, although life can sometimes feel like it.

  • Thank you so much Scott. Blach & White was a first for me. Really had to restrain myself not to add colour. LOL

    Very good work! Very sad, the art expresses the feelings perfectly! Even the lack of color is perfect.

  • Thank you so much Dawn. I really had to restrain myself not to add a little bit of colour, but I wanted it to match the toning of Mieke’s image. xo
