No no...
Just wanted to express that happiness can end suddenly..
There is often a sword of Damocles that suddenly appears and may fall down...
I know, this isn't an optimistic view..., sorry..
On the other hand I believe that also unfortune and unhapiness doens't last for ever...
But normally I don't explain my works. I let them open to many interpretations...

...oh, sorry, for miss interpretation.:blush:
for sure,any happiness can end suddenly, without any advisory.it is there , the moment after it isn't anymore.. That is why we shall live in "the present moment","the Hic et Nunc" the "Carpe Diem"...
We have to project positively, of course, if grieve ,sorrow , misfortune or losses are "hitting"us...we only can try to "get up",each time , we are falling...becoming stronger, they say.
And they say, time is healing...
I understand, ...letting "an opening "to each's own interpretations, own "story".I mostly do that , too.But , when others wonder or ask, I sometimes explain, it really depends -to whom, and about what.
but, if I do, than I think is a real "exchange" of communication and real share of the Artwork.
now, if I express You my own interpretation ,I  totally understand and respect, if You may sometimes not have the wish to answer.:iconplzhug:

no problem, as I said, I have no problem with 'free' interpretations

living hic et nuc, that's a kind of art too, isn't it? not always that simple to do..

explaining art, it's not always a good idea, don't you think? the overall feeling one has about a work, is the most important thing
just like when painting or drawing,  I mostly follow my impulses, don't think a lot about it rationally..

..everything "depends"...of how, when, and with whom the how...
Most important thing...follow Your impulses, as You say...impulses come from the heart.Always follow Your heart and what it tells You :iconlovenodplz:

You improved so much at portrait works, Dirk. This one is beautiful done.
It is the awareness of that fragility that let us open our eyes for the important things.

Wow Dirk, this is really beautiful! To me, it's so interesting how the arms are done in contrast to the face.
And I very much like her mouth.

Mooie kleuren.
Het gezicht met het typisch kenmerk 
nog steeds herkenbaar ;-)
De handen maken het griezelig

zeg niet dat de neuzen nog steeds te lang zijn ;-) of had je andere typische kenmerken op het oog
misschien net iets te griezelig; misschien werk ik ze nog wat bij
bedankt!

Een zeer passende titel bij dit werk, Dirk. Ook een belangrijk onderdeel van kunst. 
Ik vind je kleurgebruik erg goed. Het is warm in je laatste werken.
