Vessels feeding the heart with life
Jean
01:10:26
the artist makes use of white space with the missing piece and to me it means a part of his heart that is missing

Conflict between spiritual background, and a heart disconnected from spirit.

I thought the heart was inside of his head, that is split apart
Marilee Ossip
01:11:14
Day to day life is a puzzle to many, and our hearts search for meaning but there is always a missing piece, which is a connection to our God..

Lori Greenberg
01:27:20
I get a strong sense of loneliness and isolation.
James Mackenzie
01:27:27
Someone feeling like they are on the outside, the outcast, why don't I fit in?What am I doing wrong that looks like everyone else is doing right?

alone, outside, despair, while others dance
Paula Pam Wainwright

Many little groups of connection but the girl in purple is reaching out but is not invited. She is alone.
Chrysse Everhart
01:28:20
If Marie is the person in green her making connections leaves the one in purple out. If Maris is the one in purple, the connected group closes their circle away from the purple one.

Something that is closed off
Chrysse Everhart
01:41:36
I love this. Whether is is before daybreak or after dusk, it evokes both the peace of the gloaming and a gloom. It is my after-work time outdoors. A pileated woodpecker isn’t bleak to me. Nor is the light. Please pronounce me Kriis
