Onus by PenelopeT Onus by PenelopeT
Onus: a difficult burden, task or obligation...

And no, this does not have anything to do with my recent engagement:) [link]

Made from my photos and painted in PS... that floor warping where the figure sinks was a pain... hopefully it looks ok for these purposes...

All images individually and collectively C.2008 Penelope T. and may not be used without my permission

I'm not sure why, but it reminds me about Salvador Dali :)

:+fav: I must say... that despite the weight of the world, this piece is incredibly hopeful. Being both weighted down, but aloft on a platform in the sky... seems to elicit a feeling of potential freedom from burden, here. As if this androgynous person (representative of all humankind, I'm sure) has only, to turn around and look up to see the vastness of possibility and beauty surrounding him. Even in doing so, he may still be encumbered by the weight, but would have the ability to know that it will be bearable. This is both thoughtful and really beautiful... in concept and artistic delivery. Well done. I like it and can appreciate it very much.

You have made my day:) I am so glad that you were able to see the hope in this piece. While the weight of the world, and also the responsibility of taking care of it, is a heavy burden at times, there is truly always hope and possibilities...and sometimes the things we think of as weights are but differences in perception...

I am so pleased that you were able to glean all this from the picture:)
I thank you for sharing your wise insight and kind words with me today:)

And I see that you requested this as a print? Honestly I have never had prints done before here... so I am not sure where to start...and the image I uploaded is a lesser quality image than I would use for a print... so if you can tell me where to start I can get to working on that...thanks:)
