Illustration Friday submission for the theme of Surrender

I've actually done quite a few paintings that I thought fit this theme, but maybe this one the most.... She's surrendering to the current of the winds, to her own moods, to her dreams, to the possiblilty her dreams will fall, to the overwhelming forces of nature, and to life itself!

  3. Isn't it odd that you have so many falling ladies, but for "surrender", this girl is standing up and joyful? Funny how things are sometimes :) Love the colors!

  5. This interpretation of "surrender" has an interesting feel of forward motion; reaching out rather than submitting. Cool.

  6. Thanks for the comments, I love hearing them because sometimes it helps me understand what I paint more than as I do it...I think my take on surrender is to accept and allow rather than give up!

  7. I like your take on surrender. The colors of your painting are beautiful and to me, it has a spiritual feel of letting things go.
