Abandoned by DestinyBlue Abandoned by DestinyBlue

Even in abandoned places flowers still grow.


This place has long been forgotten, left to decay. The building is akin to her soul, abandoned, unloved, alone. Yet it's in situations like that we can grow the most, even without realising it. If you take everything out, new growth will come. Those little shoots can grow unimpeded. Our tears watering them, and one day they will flower and bloom.

This is the next piece in Paige's story after
Open my Heart to You by DestinyBlue and Sew Closed my Soul by DestinyBlue This comes after she's been rejected, is alone and has her own thoughts for company, she has a long way to go, but these beginnings are small but good :) She has much longer hair here than in 'real' life, symbolising that shes been in the building a long time and has experienced all the progression along with it.


Much credit and appreciation to Ben Cooper, who's photo I used as reference for the background. I've been inspired by his urban exploration photography, and would like to work on more backgrounds and scenery. I urge everyone to check out his site: transientplaces.co.uk

I put so many hours into this, and I have to say I'm pleased with the outcome, it was fantastic fun to work on something different and I've learned a lot I will apply later :) I'm kinda nervous to see if people will like it ^^;

Beautiful painting.
I'm afraid my nerd is showing though because I'm very interested in your perspective drawing - which is very good btw. I was wondering if you used a guide or did it freehand?

You'll be pleased to know this piece was born to be bathed in crisp, morning sunlight - I have been admiring it every day so far and it blooms from the richness of the colours. Thanks again for putting up with my floating about your stall on Sunday :) - Cam

I guess that's why I am so fond of abandoned buildings lately. Thank you for explaining my life to me. :heart:

And I love how you can make everything glow ... your paintings have the most beautiful lighting I have seen in a long time.

Your art is just beautiful, so colorful and somehow the dim colors make it... bright... I probably sound retarded but that's how I see it.
