Tears for Joy in the Garden of Giants
Digital painting

(details and close-ups here )



I had this thought one day about the fact that feelings belong to oneself, and that it was foolish to pretend being able to share. Later I found that maybe, thanks to art, their was a possibility for the sharing to happen.
As an artist, I consider it's my mission to give shape and color to feelings that otherwise are trapped within an individual. With time I turned to be a quite "romantic" person, in the literary definition of the term, i.e. a person who is fascinated by the spectacle of his own feelings.
In the immense diversity of emotions one can feel, I choose to extract a striking and rare one and turn it to spectacle. This emotion is a joy so immense that it makes cry tears; smiling and weeping at the same time, the widest range of behaviors concentrated in one single emotion.


**edit october 2009**
You really have to read the detailed analysis that *sequentialscott wrote about the painting .
It is extremely fluid in the writing, thorough in the analysis, and insightful even for myself. I can't thank him enough for the great honor it was to receive such quality work and honoring attention.

this is stunning, the depth and soft lighting leaves this feeling arid and light, also brought on by the height in the perspective. Up there you almost feel one with the giants:)

From another romatic person myself, who is doing baby steps to share my own feelings with others. Your words are inspiring to me and your work too. I love the tears of joy in your characters, the expressions are vivid for me so I can get the feeling very clearly.
