Letting go of the fist

...
Just logged on to find a recieved a DD?! So excited. Thank you for all the comments and attention. :D
I noticed a few comments asking 'what its about'...I may have missed my window of attention, but I'm going to add this anyway.

This painting is about holding on when the love in your life has stopped. It's about that moment, when you realize, you are being left to dangle alone, grasping onto someone who isn't grasping back. The other person, is in fact, resisting your attempts to hold on...and you know you have to let go, but when you do, you know there is something dark and dreadful waiting below. You will probably survive the fall, but you will be changed forever by the impact. It is so. hard. to. let. go.
