one beautiful but sad memory - great use of space - perfect organic shapes - the transpartency of these forms are superb - the white almnost contour lines you used for the edges of each for are perfect I make for one solid pioece of work - the placement of these forms plus knowing when to stop makes this one great composition - when you cut off some of the organic forms of what looks like a flower really adds to the 3D effect & makes the piece jump out of the great post - the Chinese used it & then the Post Impressionists used it to show depth in a completely flat painting - you are an exceptional fractal artist - I have an aunt named Babe - I love this piece cuz it is so calming even though your emotions were not that way at a time - maybe by doing this piece it helped you with all the intense emotions at the time - I am sorry what you had to go through - take care
Thank you so much for your thoughtful, supporting comment Your perception of the image is awesome. I was actually very calm when I played with the flame. I tend to be calm in exceptional situations I like the illusion that if I keep the calm I can prevent other people from over reactions. My mother died very very slowly and I believed that calmness would help her to let go.
I noticed that you visited my gallery and am very touched by the many images you added to your favs. I am very touched. Thank you very much for taking the time
please forgive me for my bad typing & leaving words out - I have an illness that messes up what is in my head to type does not reacdh my fingers - I feel very badly about it - I am glad you could understand what I was trying to say there is always one in the family that has to keep some kind of order & clam no matter what the situation is - I not only have art degrees behind me but I worked in the field of psychology before I became sick - I am like you - I have had to do this myself - I watched my mom go through a very long death - it was not easy but as you said it does help the one we love let go & follow the light home - I have a piece in this gallery that deals with this - it is titled The Way Home - I use butterflies as a symbol of a soul being released so it can fly home - I have had to use this metaphor more than once to prepare a person for their death & for some odd reason it truly helps them - I love your gallery - I just had to see it & bring something back - you make very beautiful fractals
I never noticed any missing words in your text. I saw a cool test once where they had left out lot's of letters in every sentence and still the text was understandable with no problem. I don't notice details much and concentrate on the meaning of a test much more than how it is presented
The butterfly is a nice symbol for freedom. Freedom of the soul and freedom of the spirit but also for friendliness and contact among people. I love butterflies I go to look for "The Way Home" later when I am done with the message center
Thank you very much for your kind compliment about my fractals. I know that I am not a genius, I never had any education in art but it gives me a lot of pleasure to make them and learning by doing. Making them is a great distraction for me. If one or the other piece is liked by my watchers I am happy :hug;
I saw that test on being able to read messed up wprds & understanding what you are reading - a friend of mine could not do it - I thought it was easy - butterflies are greart - I love them - you are great at making fractals - you are a self taught artist just think of that & it is a great accomplishment - be proud of what you can do - I have no idea how to make fractal - take care
I have over 35 CDs filled with art I made in about 2 years non-stop - that is true addiction - I am finally worn out from the long creative bing - it will not be long before I am refreshed to want to make art again - we do grow out of it - good luck with your addiction
My mother was 93 and she died very slowly. I was relieved when I didn't have to watch her wasting away any longer. She was the first person I had dying at home. The day before she died was very difficult because I didn't know how much longer it would take and how the end would be. She lived until every strength had left her to be too weak to drink or eat or talk. Vanessa Redgrave in the FIlm Evening reminds me of her a lot.
That's very sad. My mom died at home, too. She had terminal breast cancer and there was nothing more that could be done. She was only 79 years old. My father, on the other hand, died from Alzheimers at the age of 96, after a long, slow decline in physical and mental health. In some ways, I think my mother's death was "easier" because she didn't suffer as long as Dad did. My dad had to spend the last 7 years of his life in assisted living/nursing homes. It's a good thing he saved some money because those places are very expensive!
My mother in law has to live in a nursing home because of Alzheimer. It's already 7 years since she showed the first strong symptoms. She is 83 now. My mother didn't have Alz but three years before she died she had a stroke that affected parts of her brain and she could not be left alone anymore from one minute to another. I dread such a fate. It's terrible if you loose functions of the brain.
