Hi there,

First I'd like to comment on the artwork.
It is a very appropriate style of painting for the theme quote in the middle. The chaotic shapes created by each brush stroke is very engaging and interesting, almost expressionist. It really creates a relationship between the subject of the writing, and the medium used.
The colours are interesting.
I think, if you were to add a layer of depth to this piece, next time you could consider creating a colour story. Because the theme of your writing is dark, almost somber and slightly panicked, you could use vibrant aggressive colours such as reds and oranges, perhaps some maroon or another warm dark colour to represent the feeling.
In contrast, you could go a completely different way and choose calming colours like various shades of blue and represent the opposite of what you are trying to communicate and the artwork could be almost hopeful.
The flashes of yellow are quite nice, and you could utilize it more so that a flash of a certain colour could have more of a symbolic meaning, like a flash or hope, or a flash of anxiety.

The written piece is gorgeous. Plain and simple is extremely effective, and you have written the subject of almost desperation quite beautifully.

Well done on a great piece, and I have to mention again how well you have used the technique of quick, sporadic strokes of colour. I really like this piece.

This reminds me of an album cover I once saw for an indie band I don't remember the name of. If it comes to me, I'll let you know. Anyway, they had the water-colored speckled cover with two lines of a song on the front, which was the name of the album, and I like the concept of this, only without lines 1 and 3.

I'd much prefer it with just

I need you here
I need you here

because repetition can evoke something that verbosity can't achieve, and with the colors themselves, I'd likely nix the yellow for a darker goldenrod shade for a slightly darker theme all-around if you feel me, but altogether I love this.

Keep it up, and I hope to see more from you!

I love this piece of art. In fact, is that attempted poetry there in the middle? Or was it some random, inspirational thing that came from nowhere? Either way, I love it. The colors around the border are pretty darn awesome, but there's one thing, it needs to be brighter.

Add some more warmer colors, and colder colors. I'm not saying this isn't nice, but it could be more... saturated, i think? It's mostly pinks, browns, greens. If you can see what I'm talking about.

Btw, is that glitter at the inner circle? Nice touch! And I also like the brown splatter that are distributed uniformly around the glitter.

All in all, good job! 9/10!

This is great. The quote brings up many emotions. The colors and strokes of the border show the feelings and reactions associated with being in the situation that goes hand in hand with the quote. Very well done.

Wow. I have never seen ANYTHING like this before on this site or anywhere. I never knew that you could post artwork on here, I thought that it was for writing only. But this is super cool, I like the use of colors and artistic creation that you added in it. I do t know much about art, but I thought that this was cool. Keep doing things like this and being creative, you're very good at this. Create the things that others don't know how to do!!!!!!

Thank you Ashley! I actually saw the quote on Pinterest, and figured what if somebody could start a story from this? So I posted it. I have about 12 or 13 sketchbooks and I'll be posting more art in the future. Have a great day! :)

Top of the morning, NympheaLily here!
I love the wreath of color. It looks so well built and it just works. Now, for the words.

I feel like this entire thing is trying to send a message. Not only the words but the wreath too. Now that I look at it more closely, I see that the wreath seems to be contaminated by the black. In my mind, this represents depression, anxiety, and other bad things that everyone hates.

The words are only words without the art behind it, but with the art, the words take on a new different meaning. This is my interpretation, and it may not be anyone else's but y'know, who cares?

Wow. This is a wonderful interpretation from just a page of art. I did this with nail polish, and a pen, but I got the quote from Pinterest. Your visualizations are quite unique. Thanks for commenting! Have a good day! :-)
