An Old Flame by MichaelO An Old Flame by MichaelO
I carry a torch for someone. It's heavy and I have to carry it alone. It's cold and it burns but it does bring me joy to know that there's someone in this world worth carrying a torch for.

This reminds me of the movie 'Castle in the Sky'
It's gorgeous in ways that I can't speak. It is as beautiful in emotion as it is in the physical sense. I wish that I could tell you how this makes me feel. But I can't, the feeling is too pure.

The painting itself is beautiful and strange... enough so that you have to keep coming back to stare at it again... :) but after reading the artist comments, it wasn't only beautiful, it was meaningful. I discovered this painting on the daily deviations page, and I'm glad i did!

This is awesome... The lighting and the shading is brilliant xD;


The one thing that looks odd is the shading on the foot, by the small toe o.o But other than that, it's absolutely stunning

This is so beautiful. A beautiful picture and a wonderful message behind it. "there's someone in this world worth carrying a torch for." Such a wonderful message of hope. The colours in this are amazing and I've always had a love of glowy-things. Congradulations on the Daily Deviation, mate--it is very well-deserved!

Wonderful lighting and sentiment to go with it. The silver lining of holding a torch for someone - that there is someone worth holding a torch for - is an expression I've never seen in words.

Just curious...why carry this torch? What does that symbolise?
