I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Oh My! Such a wonderful pastel drawing...Plus I can feel the depth in the image...I mean I can truly see how this is just one those everyday moments between two sisters that love eachother and I love how the lack of detail gives it such a vivid effect...

This piece and the other work of the artist are phenomenal.  Beyond the beauty on the canvas, it communicates a story and spirit.

Thank you for your comment-- it is very intuitive. This piece is of my sister and I, and we have a close bond, so your second guess is pretty accurate about our relationship.

It's like a snapshot of how sisters are when they are just being themselves. This piece has me wondering if these sisters have a distant relationship---because they aren't even looking at each other---or is their bond so close that they can just hang out, nothing needs to be said or they are just comfortable with each other?
