"With love and patience, nothing is impossible"
Daisaku Ikeda

Super neat work. The wave seems very powerful. Great words to go with the subject, too.

Beautiful. It looks like a woodcut.

It is gorgeous... I've been thinking of ways to express my sympathy and grief towards those who have lost their loved ones in the tragedy...so far I've only manage to keep them in my head and not my sketch book unfortunately

I love this! A beautiful drawing of the wave, and the color contrast with the orange of the rising sun is very dramatic.

Beautifully done and in an appropriately Asian style.

Sandra said...

Stunning!

What a fitting tribute - both the black wave and the words, and beautifully done - love the action of the wave and the stillness of the sun.

This is so well done, Cathy! I've been racking my brains trying to come up with something meaningful to do. And of course, the black wave, who could forget that horrible sight. You've said a lot with this one.
