The happiness of life
The happiness of my life is mum. Mum hand are holdings me since I was born and mum hand will holding me until fulfilment end of my life. Mother is powerful, she never let me down every time I’m falling or give up she always reach my hand and pull me up to a better life. Also every time I turn around I realise life is no better without her.
My art was a digital oil painting by using free image from online

"Laughing in the face of Death"
By Rachael. Bannister
Meet Lee. One of the most amazing, hilarious and inspirational women I have ever had the privilege of meeting. Lee and her incredibly supportive family do their utmost to "Laugh in the Face of Death". This photo of Lee and her Niece depicts perfectly the positive, fun loving attitude she has. Even through the pain and suffering she endures on the inside, due to High grade, Large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the cervix. Lee remains remarkably strong and continues to live her life to the fullest "To Infinity and Beyond", on a daily basis.
My artwork is ultimately about the feelings of sadness and anger. I believe these emotions greatly damage our views and perspectives on our lives. These emotions need to be identified and expressed in the correct way, because if they are not these emotions will take over and not allow an individual to live the life they urge to live.
Just to Feel the Sun
By Kimberly Caldwell
How warm is the sun on our faces? As we gaze at the sea, peaceful and calm. Together.
To feel it reminds us we are still alive, we can still feel the warmth and joy of its touch.
Just to feel the sun.
Grief is not weakness, but indicates how much we love the ones we've lost.
You think you will never get through it, but there are brighter days ahead.
Hopeful hearts waiting. The sun will shine on our faces again.
Union expresses the moment where the body returns to earth while the ineffable returns to the cosmos, representing the part of us that remains eternal.
life after death
By Carla Wettstein
I think that after death life goes on. I find lots of similarities in nature with our organs or bones.
Could be that after death one of our organs or bones is integrated into nature and lives on. On the far right of this painting you can see a bronchial tree (medical expression)
