Every time I see this picture I actually feel something like pain or love or desire. Feelings that seem to explode from my chest. From deep inside. A physical feeling. A heaviness. Sometimes it makes me want to cry....from love or sadness....sometimes both it seems.
This is one of my most favorite pictures. It's from "Ashes & Snow" by Gregory Colbert. How I missed his exhibition in Santa Monica a few years ago I don't know. How I found this picture? It was and still is hanging on a cupboard in Helen's house. I gasped the first time I saw it. And I've never let it out of my mind.
I recently found the online exhibition. You should first get a cup of tea or coffee and plan on a few quiet minutes of going thru. It's incredible.
