Thank you to everyone here at Artwanted for easing my pain

I've been a member for some years now and I must say, on those days where I am unable to leave the house this place has been my healing zone. It wakes up my mind and imagination, it fills me with ideas whilst distracting me from reality. On looking at so many wonderful works of art on here it also reminds me of my youth and the styles I used to do back then. I forgot about so many drawings I had done as a child. Today has brought back memories and pictures I had completely forgotten. We live in an era now where everything is logged. Made me think of the millions of pieces of art worldwide lost because they had no way of being recorded. ARTWANTED is a magical place I wish more people would join and share. The attached painting is of my son Daniel, who is no longer with us. His smile lives on in our hearts

Your amazing portrait of your handsome son and his enthusiasm for living and your love for him comes through. You say so much art has been lost because it was never recorded, but even recorded images can be lost and hard copies destroyed, but they still exist in our memories. It is interesting to see the world through other artists' eyes and what is important to them here at artwanted.com
