This is part 3 of the "Life Lessons" series.

Thank you so much Sophia for helping me create this image. This particular piece means a lot to me.
I see a young girl, left alone. She is torn apart by two worlds, one is reality and the other one isn't. But because she loves the world that was made up for her, it gives her pain to cut the cord. So she looks away, cries, and the cuts the tie.

It's a lesson I'm learning currently.

Thank you to everyone for their amazing support :)

Please comment and tell me what this piece says to you.

You took my hand
You showed me how
You promised me you'd be around
I took your words
And I believed
In everything
You said to me

I really like it.  Her hair is short, so she could have cut it as well.  Her hand doesn't have a strong hold on the scissors, so she still seems hesitant to go through with the task.  Of course change is portrayed by the wind and the changing of the seasons seen in the falling leaves.  I find it to be a very moving piece :)

The background gives it a kind of painted ethereal effect that really gives it a sense of motion. Nice job and congrats on the DD :)

Cut Your Ties? Hmm... It might have been more symbolic if the string was rapped around her finger or something. Still, it's beautiful.
