Im not sure of the subject matter, but I'm certain that my emotional response was spot on.
Hey there. Don't really post actual comments. Usually stupid shit and memes. But from the bottom of my heart, this is amazing.
Even before you mentioned it was your dad, I saw my dad in the picture. It's been two years since he died from a freak brain hemorrhage. He didn't get to see me graduate from college. He didn't get to see me get my first salary job. He didn't get to see me become the man I should have been a long time ago. Sorry. Now I'm venting. I miss him.
Thank you for you for sharing this pic. It's lovely.
This is beautiful and relatable.
It’s emotionally charged and it hits those bittersweet undertones. The watercolor emphasizes that on itself with a rather nostalgic feeling.
It hit me right in my feels.
This hit me hard in a different way than most... I have a condition that means I'm in and out of hospitals all the time. My dad told me I'm his hero a couple of weeks ago, when all I really feel like is a burden, but this gave me the same warm fuzzy feeling... I just hope you know that your love and support is what makes getting through each and every day worth it for him. It's got to be impossibly hard, sometimes I think this is harder on my parents than it is on me, but just being there is all he needs ❤️
I just lost my father this friday, and this picture speaks so much to what I feel. It's a beautiful drawing.
Hello. I know nothing about art and am, in general, a cultureless swine.
Your painting prompted a strong emotional response, and I thank you for the moment of raw humanity you introduced into my day.
10 years ago I was in a relationship with a girl whose father had had a stroke (before we met) and was mostly bedridden. He could walk slowly with a walker or the leverage of furniture but couldn’t really speak.
Seeing this painting brought me back to those days because this looks exactly like him and really reminded me of what their family was going through all those years - for those wondering he is indeed still alive but I have no idea if he has made any progress in the years since.
What I’m trying to say is this was incredibly well done, bringing me back to memories I didn’t even realize were important.
It’s not often I stop to comment on posts like these. I just wanted to let you know that I find this piece to be incredible.
I have been browsing reddit at work per usual, and this stopped me dead in my tracks. I had goosebumps as soon as I stopped to look.
I didn’t need a description to know what this art was saying. Maybe it’s just because my parents are slowing down a bit and I just understand.
Either way, so powerful. I really appreciate this painting and foresee myself referring back to it often. Thank you so much for sharing.
My (late) dad loved his Superman shirt. It gave him so much strength as he battled what I now think is complex PTSD and his neighbors. He sadly was seriously hurt and later murdered because of fights with neighbors and an old friend.
But while he was here and while I had him, he was Superman.
My dad was always my hero and he never believes me when I tell him. I love this, good job
I can see emotion in it, nice work dude continue!
This is beautifully done. Thank you for sharing it and I'm sorry to hear about your father.
I'm not an emotional person and rarely appreciate art; this painting elicited a response from me like no other painting before. Beautiful work.
