Thank you very much to a kind TL Member, Cindy Hains, for letting me use her photo "Sea Fairy" in one of my paintings. She has many beautiful photos in her gallery, full of creativeness/imagination, color and happiness. Bubbles are one of those things we like as children, and they go very fast; we can not keep them longer even we would try. We just can watch them and enjoy them while they last. This is like how children live and grow up so quickly.

Cindy Hains´s photos have a lot of symbols. In this one, some I can see: the girl is an Angel, symbol of divine will in several traditions. Seen as messengers, warriors, guardians and protectors. Bubble, symbol of illusion. Circle, with no beginning and no end, the circle has been used to signify eternity and wholeness, the heavens, the cosmos, the absolute and perfection. The bare feet are often sign of humility. Etc.

You are very talented painter.

The art work is a beautiful piece of oil painting creatively done based on a photo. It is better than the photo.

Good work.
