Reflections of Hope: Lost & Awaiting in the Timelessness of Memories

Yes, the grass is always greener on the other side...And it seems you may pull through, but you won't; you can't. It's only a mirror...

You can look, but you can't touch. Such is the pain of memory and lost time- and as you can see this clock has no hands. Is it dusk or is it dawn?

What does it reflect for you? Where would you rather be? *sigh* The nature of hope and nostalgia... The music, the scents, the lights...It's always quite fun, reminiscing...

War always dresses pretty, and a Heart of Stone could be in fashion. Just pluck it out and plaster it on the wall- there's no real use for it. After all, who can fly with just one wing. Decoration isn't everything, although to some it's sufficient. The heartlessness of it all... Can you really face this mirror?

Painted the face of my best friend somewhere around there- may you rest in peace:
I remember you every day, every single day...

I can still hear the bells for the hopeless trapped in this twilight...

*may or may not be finished but yeah...*

Wow this is so beautiful and surreal! *____*
The obvious story behind this art work is very evident even in thumbnail view and then I zoomed in ... just wow! So much symbolism!
I really like the composition, colours, style and details! Great work!

Loved this piece when I saw the first beginnings of it, and am really pleased to see it in a more finished state... I think it stands very well as it is, and I love the description. The whole piece is very you, Oz, as much as I understand of you, I'd love to see more works like this from you.

I have to do more of this kind, yes :) It can be emotionally draining but all I need is a few days before beginning a new one. I'm very glad you like it :excited:
