I'm sure your teacher would be proud to know you're using your grief in an artistic way. I can tell there's a lot of emotion in this.

I'm really sorry about your art teacher.

I really like this. Really pretty. I love the use of color, no matter how cheesy that sounds.

this is very earnest.
to me, the pain you must of felt shows itself as so momentus in such a direct respect to who she was as a teacher and an artist.
i know i never knew her; but i think she would be proud. and i hope you move through your grief when you're ready. and always keep painting.

When I think of the soul of the artist, I always come back to this painting. You make me hurt when I feel the loss of an individual who helped change your world (and others) for good. You honor those who toil in the noble profession.

I remember when Mrs. West died of Cancer. I was moved by all of the wonderful things her students said of her at the funeral. Yet this work of art says more than I heard that day. What a wonderful tribute!!!

OH WOW. That is so sad, but your art is so beautiful. I am so sure that if your art teacher could see this, she would be very, very proud!
