"Surrender"

I wish you all could have seen the drawing in it's original state, I'm afraid the scan just doesn't do this piece any justice... This was a commission, if you recall my piece called "Heartbroken". A most wonderful person fell in love with her, but wanted me to create a very special piece similar that they could call their very own.... So, here I've created "Surrender". She's tried to be brave, but the pain & sorrow was just too much to bear. All she could do is succumb to the agony & surrender all of her emotions. She is captured in that very moment for all time.

  8. Oh Heavens! Joanna, how can I express what this piece makes me feel, if there are no words! This is glorious, it is pure feeling, sorrow, raw emotion, and just by looking at it, I can feel my heart weep, my chest tighten, my soul sadden.
    Your original was so amazingly beautiful that it seemed impossible to match, but this piece, well, really, as I said, I have no words!
    BRAVO JOANNA!
