Rejection -IF



This is posted in response to Illustration Friday. This week's topic is "Rejection". Most of us have felt rejected; small, void of color, lonely, left out, knowing everyone else is having a great time. But, then again, we see the "outside" of people, we really don't know what they are concealing. Remember, we are all connected. Find compassion in your own heart for yourself and others...

I love this Michelle! It's so perfect for the prompt. I didn't want to do anything negative either. You've come up with a perfect solution, and as always, thought provoking and kind :)
Wishing you a magical weekend! ~L~

I responded to this, it really does an excellent job of communicating the feeling (maybe too well!)

Have a great weekend.

I like the fact that the black one is alone - you mentioned that it seems void of color, but actually it's soaking in all color. Doesn't white reflect all light, while black reflects none? So then that black one is drawing in everything! Talk about being connected! :)

(Hope I'm not wrong about that - I can't really remember how colors work!)

Lovely illustration and wonderfully kind words...everyone has felt rejected at some point and we all would do well to consider the feelings of others. Great work!

Wonderful use of colour! This is the kind of work I like best, simple but powerful.

And the commentary is great too :)

Thanks to all of you for your time and comments. I had fun with this prompt. Just let the idea flow out and this simple piece arrived.

Steve, you are right about black absorbing all the light (color waves), this is true with pigments, but, the opposite in the RGB color mode. But, I see your point, and thought about that, too.

Peace.
