Camille Chandler says: Oh Mayumi always your artwork is astonishingly touching....I love how you sketched her embracing her own heart...and how the beautiful butterfly has left and her tears follow the essence of the butterfly.... now she is left embracing her grief and sorrow...but her tears will follow the love that is void in her broken heart...oh thank you so much for your insightful gift and for accepting my prompt.... ~ Reply?
