I have been very depressed over the last few weeks, between missing my son (hes in NY til august with my parents he's been gone since may),things being terrible between his mother and I,a girl that has loved me unconditionally through all of this now has someone new in her life,the brink of WWIII I feel like im lost. so in front of the computer yesterday i chose to make something simple yet so emotionally deep, then I made that. if you look into the teardrop you can see that the world within for what it really is. It is upside down as it is within my head, it has the sadness of nothing and yet the possibilty of everything,the beauty of nature and the POWER of god ,which is so lacking in todays life EVEN within MY own personal life just like life is in these sorrowful times
I have no criticism of the image itself except to say that the clouds are beautiful reflected and refracted inside that tear drop.
You are wise to focus your mind on constructive things during this trying time in your life. Creating new things like renderings can help fill in that sense of emptiness and isolation by giving you something neutral to concentrate on and relieveing at least momentarily any discomfort. My friends often ask me why I spend so much time rendering pictures and other things. I tell them that they wouldn't want to be my friend if I didn't do these types of things. Art is therapeutic and I feel sorry for those who don't have it as a tool for coping with life. I've never met you before, but I still wish you and your family the best in dealing with these challenging and changing conditions. Keep your faith near!!
I would also like to say thank you to you for your feedback on my image A Bug And A Brook the other day. You've been a memeber of this site for a few years now and have never ever posted an opinion or critique of anyone's work, until my image. I feel honored to have evoked a response from you. P.S. I'm sure your son misses you too.

I second rashad, putting yourself into something constructive is the single best thing you can do when you're down.
