I made this with hundreds of random hand-written words (no automatic fonts used!!).
That was a time consuming project. I might be working on similar images shortly.

My mother is a dance teacher. So this piece is dedicated to her! :)

Angel (Sonnet 14)

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

With a mind and a face of an angel,
She toned each my feelings with affection;
Letting on me, fragile kind of marvel,
And showing me the straightest direction.
To the castles in the mystified air,
Where the desiring rainbow crosses through;
And we sometimes do fly away to there,
When we feel down, and are exposed and blue.
All the ways of grace she showed then to me,
With viewpoint to courage and to be kind;
How easy it is then to become free,
If all worries are left forgotten behind.
This angel is sweet creature so divine,
Everything else a shadow, to her shine.

This piece took my breath away. The vision is incredibly insightful, and it offers a true window into the mind and body of a dancer. The piece, though incredibly unique, has been done before, but not to such a degree where it is repetitive. I only counted off half a star for this, which is the only thing that stopped me from giving you 5 out of 5 for every category. The technique is close to flawless, and it reflects a truly talented artist. You handwriting (or font- which ever was used) fits the picture brilliantly, as if they were made for one another. The impact of the picture was, as stated before, breathtaking. At first, when I came across this picture, it didn't seem too interesting, but upon closer examination, I realized it NEEDED to be noticed, not ignored.
I have been dancing since I was four years old, and this picture is very true. Dancing is expressive and fiery, as well as light and gentle. It ensnares one's very soul and keeps it. I have had a fiery, wild passion for all types of dance, as long as I can remember. This piece captures everything about dance, from it's explosive passion to its quiet grace. I simply love this piece. It really struck a chord with me, and I can't wait to see more!
