Lake of Longing - Updated by folkvangar Lake of Longing - Updated by folkvangar
Image originally done some time ago for Duirwaigh Gallery, for the film and book "Knock at the Door"
A melancholic & romantic piece. She's giving up her pain, wich is symbolized
with the scarf. Sometimes is really hard to let go all the pain, because
at least it define us.
Painted with Photoshop CS3

Lake of Longing by *folkvangar is a gorgeous work flowing with emotion. The artist has a beautiful soft style that brings life to her characters and their surroundings. Wonderful details and colors. ( Suggested by Heylenne and Featured by cosmosue )

And I seem to recall giving up your pain...means you have to forget....and as you say it shapes us...

Kinda reminds me of the lady of the lake from King Arthur and her knight... She died and gave up the pain of a broken heart and was set out on a pyre on a lake

I love the soft, dreamy atmosphere here. The background is almost fading, like she`s in a subconcious or made-up place.

The idea behind it is really good, and very recognizable
