People are just jealous. They look happy enough to me. Floating is very relaxing.
This is a very nice piece. Cloud walking or floating. Lovely.

I don't think 'sad' I'd say wistful and I love it!

I find your images so beautiful. I am fascinated with that sort of ghostly look, and have been playing around trying to get that ghostly sort of image. I have recently been given a blogger award and must pass it along to other deserving recipients. I would like to share it with you - if you choose to visit my blog you will see the award and its guidelines.

i don't really think anything wrong of people calling them sad, and definitely see their point. i'm more just fascinated by the interpretations, it's why i do the work with figures and symbolism, all i want is that emotional response. and i love that such a simple idea of just making someone float can create such different responses.
thank you all.

I love that floating in clouds thing you've got going on......I'd like to be able to float above it all in a lovely red dress.

I used to dream of floating just like that so often as a child and loved to looking down on the houses and the forest and the sea. This lovely image makes me feel peaceful and serene. It's really beautiful and I love the name too!
