Sad Memory by baba49 Sad Memory by baba49

I made this exactly one year ago, a few hours before my mother died. This white flower on black illustrates the mood of those hours very well.

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 :hug: 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 :hug:

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 :hug: 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 :hug: :) :rose:

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 :D
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 :D I go to look for "The Way Home" later when I am done with the message center :D
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;

:D 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 :hug: :D :rose:
