Your work is so good. The message and the art...just really good. I'm an artist too. I used to do "names" in drawing, if that makes sense. Now I'm doing oils and experimenting.

Zaraya said...

The title alone is...fascinating. I like how your had all the pieces and their names tie together. Really cool and creative. I am inspired. A poem is going to come out of this...THANKS! I am going to cite your title...be on the look out for that. :)

Haha! The "Anxious Queen" is my ex girlfriend to a tee. She would spend hours on the phone with her Aunt and afterwards she would have changed her mind about everything in her life. This happened about once a month. Good stuff...
