Paroxysm by La-Chapeliere-Folle Paroxysm by La-Chapeliere-Folle
A sudden attack or violent expression of a particular emotion or activity.

Do you guys know this feeling, when very simple and mundane things happen, not necessarely bad things, things that shouldn't have any importance for you, things that don't even necessarily concern you, things that you couldn't ever imagine hurting you when you thought about them before... Yet when these things happen, you suddenly feel powerless and out of balance, like you just jumped off a building in a TV show directed by Steven Moffat. And all of the sudden it hurts. And then, you just feel like you are left alone and scared in some dark and cold place of your consciousness, with the utterly terrifying realization that a certain something or someone in your life somehow became much more important to you than you could ever have imagined they would.

This drawing is dedicated to all things that hurt in unexpected ways
because we let them matter much more than they ever should.

P.S. This song is beautiful: [link]
Nothing in this description makes sense. Sorry for being such a mess.

Your amazing, you put your raw emotion into these powerful pieces. Your colors and lines flow together connecting with us each uniquely. We all think of different memories when we see this amazing work of art, but it conveys the same meaning to all of us. We all are transported back to those memories in vivid color. We can feel them again.

so thank you. For showing us beauty. The beauty in nouns and color.

The drawing is beautiful, and the description is poetic. Poetry does not have to make logical sense, but instead speaks to an emotional experience. I like the way you captured the emotion in this drawing, your use of color, and the birds. :heart:
