Salamander


And so the year is gone... It was a very prolific year. I produced a lot and learned a lot also. I`d like to thank everyone who ever commented or read something around here. Your support is very important for me to keep going.
The only sad note of the year is that my father passed away last week and left a hollow in my life that will never be filled. I`ll miss you a lot Dad. This post is for you!

Cara, não tem-se nem oque falar numa situação dessas.
Mas espero que você esteja bem no meio disso tudo.

Jörn said...

What a great picture my friend. Maaan and the light ... the colors ... Fred is right: new level.
Sorry about your dad, Ricardo.
But the thing that seperates us artists from other people is, that we actually HAVE a way to fill the holes.
