Angel's Goodbye by Zindy Angel's Goodbye by Zindy
This is a very personal drawing to me, in a lot of ways.

I’ve gone through some pretty hard things in my life and truth is I am lucky to be here. 6 years ago I went through an awful experience that was to change my life forever. It has definitely made me feel more appreciative of the things I have and the possibilities given to me. You have to make the best of what you have and I truly believe there is a purpose of everything. Most of the time you don’t realise it when you go through it but as time goes by you go back and reflect on things in a different way. It’s one of the things I appreciate the most about getting older.

This is a reminder to myself - to work harder, to reach my goals and to do what I want and love so much.
Always to follow my dreams.

That is what this drawing symbolises to me - the goodbye of a past as I know it.
I know there will always be tears but I think that the moment you start accepting things and don’t try and go back in your thoughts, trying to think how life would have been different, in a way it sets you free.

Thanks to LisaJen for the beautiful stock: [link]

Thank you much :heart: It was sad but a lot of good things came out of it too which makes it less tragic somehow.

ok, this is just WOW! the best drawing I have seen from you so far, the expression in her face is great, it's both sad and as if she's thinking about the past, as you've explained in your comment, great job and I hope your skills will keep improving, even though I think that's pretty hard at this point :heart:

Sometimes I look back too; BAAAAD mistake. But when you suppress it, you'll need to carry that message out in order to let it rest. Such a drawing will come out yet from me too.

Indeed, as time goes by things gets better and it's easier to deal with. Drawing it out is so much better than psycology :)

I actually wrote a journal similar to what your saying [link] . I love the drawing, it's very powerful. I wish I knew how to draw clouds like that.
