Take my sorrow away / Alejar la pena / Taktu sorgina
Oil on Canvas 20 x 20

I just love to be at home relaxing and painting. I made these two early this year. If you notice on both piece there are Runa signs. The upper one is a spell to take away the sorrow.
The little bird is telling her not to be sorry and let it out because the happyness is close by!

Happyness / Alegria / Hamingja
Oil on Canvas 20 x 20

The happyness is a state of mind. With a natural spell we can take all bad feelings away. I´m not sorry because I respect my unperfect body and soul. I´m here to learn and want to absorb the most in this short and pleasant life!

I put a spell on you

These pieces are so beautiful! I love how you captured two completely different emotions and the sweet little bird telling her it will all be ok. Great use of symbols, colors and layout.

They both are really fantastic. Well done!

So we both believe that the bird can take away sorrow:-). Your illos are really beautiful. I love the bliss on the woman's face in the second illo. I can feel her happiness!

Hej Zordis!

It's a beautiful image! The women and the bird is jusl wonderful - and your comment too: you respect your unperfect you.

Du har ret, ingen af os er perfekte, men vi skal ikke hakke os oveni hovedet for det, vi skal have respekt for os selv alligevel. Og så får andre det sikkert også.

Den lille fugl er så smuk, så poetisk at tænke, at den kan trylle sorger væk -

ha' det godt - hilsen georg

These are so pretty! I love the contrast of the red hair and the green bird in the top picture, and then the sweet, happy smile in the bottom one. I like the concept behind makes them so special beyond their visual beauty.

Your work is full of emotions. Love the colours especially. It's awesome how you translate "bad feelings" to something good and beautiful.
