"Table for one: One lonely panda, looking for a friend
and companionship, seeks same... but is he really there?"

Lonely

A poem by Katie Gabrielle

All by myself
I put my heart
Upon a shelf
Even with the beauty seek
My soul is lonely, purely meek
If the world could understand
That my heart is surely grand
I could share a drink or two
Sit down with me
Won't you do?
Bring a smile upon my lips
Waiter! Garçon! Leave a tip...
I can talk, or I can cry
Kind souls have no alibi
Lonely is a single word
Free my tears
Soar like a bird
What is happy
I don't know
Just a smile
Will let it show
Wonder ever
What will be
Lonely Lonely
That is me

Critique by theotherartist Dec 15, 2010, 8:56:06 PM
There are a lot of things that make this piece truly phenomenal. The mixture between the two worlds here is wonderful and shows a lot of contrast between colors. How you possibly came up with a panda of all things, we may never know, but what we do know is that for some reason it looks perfect in this atmosphere. The colors of black and white suit well with the style you are representing within the slip of paper. When it comes to the photography outside of the paper, it could stand alone beautifully by itself.The furniture looks very elegant against the blue backdrop, and it is sincerely gorgeous. The way the sketch mixes in with the picture is great, the way the table integrates with the sketch is astounding. The concept of this piece is wonderful. The uniqueness of the piece is perfect.The editing of the two parts are smooth and look sublime. It is an overall great deviation.
What do you think?
