Probably the most personal piece of work Iíve done to date. Itís a reference to several occasions in my life where I felt that thereís nothing but a dark, bottomless pit in front of me and the only way I could go is down. In fact, all it took was for me to let go. However, there are those who are there, waiting to pull me up from this dark place. I just needed to see the rope that is offered to me and hold on to it. Well, Iím still here, so I guess I did grab the rope .
I can really relate to this. I love it and yet I do have one thing to say: The rope seems rather flimsy doesn't it? It's not interwoven like many of it think it could be but, its there and its presence signifies a lot. Great work Kay. <3

Words fail me on this piece; not for their lack, but because too many want to be used all at once. I will simply say I think this may also be your strongest piece ever. While I've never dealt with full on depression; I have friends who have, now I know that you are one of them. :hugs:
I rather figured that was the reason. I get to deal with chronic pain, which triggers it's own form of depression, so I really do understand the need for quiet peace to regroup one's emotional resources; along with the toll our conditions take on our thought processes, let alone our creativity. Take care, Luv, and I do hope you are able to maintain a margin of control.
Wow. I don't think there are many people who can take feelings like that and render them so well. This has an almost surrealist quality to it, yet at the same time it's like you're looking upon the threshold between two different worlds.
The idea behind this image actually reminds me of works by Frida Kahlo; her paintings often reflected the physical/emotional turmoil she felt in her life. Well done.
Thank you so much! And yes, one of her works, the painting with her toes poking out of the bathtub really touches me, especially that scar on her right big toe. Intense, personal paintings feel very powerful to me.
