This is a very stunning piece. It was really creative of the artist to use something as everyday as scrabble letters and her boundless imagination to create something pure. She used the sky as a backdrop even though it's layered which shows hope and a passion to raise above what she's going through even though it's the least easy thing there is to do. Underlining the AM shows perseverance in her strength, the inner desire not to give up whether it is for herself and for others that she is doing it, she IS strong. She fights daily just to get through the next few moments and she achieves it.
This is a highly emotive piece of work. Well planned and executed with a lot of time spent on the design and execution. Well presented and titled and I know it will bring strength and perseverance to others who see it knowing from her other work and what she is going through and that they are not alone in their own daily struggles no matter how slight or severe they might be.
Stunning, thought provoking work.

strong, evokes in my now: the flexibility to use whatever I can to create something good; and something can be better than I expected!
:D
Thanks for sharing something great with your idea!

Thank you, that means a lot (: It's kind of nerve-wracking to show the world your raw emotions but helping people and letting them know they're not alone means more than anything to me (:

Probably...but what about "I read somewhere... how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong... but to feel strong." - Chris McCandless
Does that sound better? :)

I'm so sad they're closing though :( I honestly don't know what i'm going to do :( i can't afford photoshop :'( its the only free editing software that is actually good. I hate google...

TheCatAttack Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
If you have Chrome, you can get the ipiccy photo editor for free. And Be Funky Photo Editor is nifty. I have no problem with google, but the new interface with picnik is still buggy, so we'll see. If you wanna try those other two though, I think you might be pleasantly surprised. I'll let you know others as I try them out. :blowkiss:

oh i didn't know you could do that! sweet! i mainly just like all the touch up stuff on picnik and the filters and the fonts and the effects and stickers and i could go on and on... no other site seems to have that :/

:iconthecatattack:
TheCatAttack Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I completely understand that. I refuse to learn photoshop. lol Between iPiccy and Be Funky, I can usually get by without my lovely picnik...so, you might wanna download chrome and add those ones. And don't worry too much about spaces...it's light. [link]
