The lovely LadyLincoln held a contest that closed at the beginning of this month, in which positivity was the central goal. Firstly, it's an amazing concept, and one I think we can never get enough of in these current times. Secondly, if any of you don't know who LadyLincoln is, you should head on over to her page and drop her a greeting; she's basically the glue of the literature community and is a true sweetheart.
It can be difficult to combine text and images, but I think everything really came together in this piece to offer an evocative experience. If I can inject a tiny bit of a ramble, I think the lesson of community is desperately needed. This artwork to me expresses the desire for success and happiness, achieved through hardworking, empathetic individuals willing to connect and grow through supporting and leaning on others.
Congratulations, WhimsicalBlue! I've noticed you give a lot of features out, so I'm really happy to be able to repay you one!
