Beautiful Sorrow



Buried for so long
memories begin to grow
beautiful sorrow

I haven't worked with black and white for a number of years. It gets bleak mixing only shades of gray and limiting myself to only sprinkles of pink and green here and there; but it works for this piece.



An in progress work I'm tempted to leave as is. I just love the old sketch look. Oh well, I have to finish it for the project though.
