Sew Closed my Soul by DestinyBlue Sew Closed my Soul by DestinyBlue

...So I can't be hurt again.


She gave her heart to someone and they gave it back to her. She's trying to repair the damage, and wants to hide her soul away so no one else will be able to hurt her again.

Second in the seires of drawing of Paige Open my Heart to You by DestinyBlue

While creating this, I was also musing on how it mirrored my artistic situation. I put my heart into my drawings and then offer them on the internet for all to scrutinise, it can be really daunting thing. A lot of the stuff I draw is personal and is never seen by anyone else, so I appreciate the overwhelming support I get when I share with you guys. Sometimes you just want to hide away. This piece isn't born of current guy troubles for me (I have a wonderfuly supportive partner) but from discussions with other people about shared experiences... and bleh, other stuff..

Been enjoying exploring this style more, I know it's another portrait, but I wanted to keep it intimate, like the viewer is close with her and feeling what shes feeling.

Peace, love and picking out stitches,
~Blue x

This is beautiful. Her looks remind me of Rapunzel from Tangled, when her hair is cut.

Looks like it's very painful for her.

Her drawings are not sad .It tells a story !!!!! there emotion. has room to say is " sad " should already start with the question what message she wants us to convey?

I made this mistake recently, but up until I read the description I thought it was Rapunzel after her hair had been cut. I was expecting to see a symbol of the sun instead, when I clicked it. :aww:

The expression the girl is holding in her soft features feels familiar to me. Also, the green shines in her eyes really brighten up with that touch of light comin form the cracks of her heart. Lotta emotion, really special. :)
