This struck me so hard, I gazed until I became short of breath.

Ghostly industrial supports that frame this image speak volumes to anyone seeking personal attachment to origins of a manufactured mind.
They speak of sturdy heights and framing.

The branches upon the chest are like old reels of film in their sun-struck hue and editing "burn".

From the left facing shoulder, there is fire and lace.
Upon the right facing shoulder, there is snow and lightning.

Crown made of jet black wings of alarm seemingly from a Raven or Crow - ominous queen

Eyes scorching like lasers and framed in what could be seen as a rendering of a "third eye" -
myopic cyclops with more inward sight than outward.

Possessed but "free" in a way no sane person would ever understand.

She is a portrait of a ghost.
She is real.
She paints an arced blue sky above all her visions.

I do realize this is my interpretation, but in this art, I was moved significantly.

I love it.

This is the most beautiful comment I've received thus far on any of my work and I thank you so very much for it. I'm so happy it speaks to you in such a powerful way. :love:

When I was creating it, I was very emotional from a situation in my life...the whole why not me? You know what I'm talking about. :) But I wanted to leave it open...could it be that she knows she's different except to him because he doesn't see her differences or looks beyond them or is it the case where she knows she's not like all the other girls because she knows that there could be a connection if he only would let there be. But!!! Your interpretation is wonderful and I prefer it to mine. :D

Thank you again. :heart:

I feel honored you would explain this piece's origin so deeply.
Makes me feel even closer to the piece.

I will be putting this in my group if you don't mind.
This is powerful.

My husband was marked on sight of it as well. :iconall-my-darkness:
