It's Not There by green-tea It's Not There by green-tea
We deny sometimes.

It's typical of us to hide things that make us miserable and detestable then we realize that the more we hide what we are ashamed of, the more it grows inside us. Sometimes we just have to look at ourselves, face our misery head on, pluck out our shame, and learn to break free. Then we won't have to close our eyes anymore.

Entry for Tragedy contest of :icondanmei-for-life:


---
I painted this last June for the Tragedy Contest. During those months I've painted (but some ended up in ruin) so many sad works. I was emotional at that time. I've always wanted to join the contest. When I saw the announcement, I bookmarked the news right away but it took me only just now to submit this because I felt shy about it. ;_; Thank you to anyone who liked this work. The feeling was close to my heart.

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-02-27
Suggester says: "This beautiful watercolor piece pulls at my heartstrings every time I look at it. Who doesn't have some part of them (physical or otherwise) that we try to hide from? Her other work is also fantastic, but this painting draws me back again and again."

Beautiful use of watercolour, and I love the antlers.

Kind of funny because I just recently did a watercolour self portrait of me with antlers, but I haven't uploaded it yet.

Have you ever heard of the series Sweet tooth? It looks like a character from there.

This looks great, I really like it!

I think you just made me cry. This reminded me of when I was younger and I was so upset, because I walked in a gas station and there were mounted deer heads on the wall. It just made me think of how some people are stealing innocence, without a second thought. Whether its some young girl, or a deer. Beautiful, and innocent.

This reminds of a story I read as a little kid. I think it was called "Imogine's Antlers" only this piece is so much more serious and emotional.
It's beautiful watercolor work, so don't be shy about it! :)

This is great. Amazing technical capability, and very intriguing content. This is one of those rare times when an illustration requires a story written around it, and not vice-versa.
