Cause you and I, we were born to die by yaokhuan Cause you and I, we were born to die by yaokhuan
Cause you and I, we were born to die

122 x 92 cm
Acrylic on Canvas

Have you ever lost someone you love and wanted one more conversation, one more glimpse, one more chance to make up for the time when you thought they would be here forever?

Often, we get too caught up with the destination that we forget to appreciate the journey, especially the goodness of the people we met on the way, only to find ourselves living a life of regret.

Here, the loving embrace serves as a reminder of the fragility of life and that however hard and however long we love someone that has passed away, they can never love us back. We should cherish the people that are still with us and never take them for granted as there will be a time where we will have to bid them farewell, cause you and I, we were born to die.

The expression in this kills me. The eyes, the brows, the mouth—they all tell so much of regret, longing, and agony. The way the skeletons hands are draped around his shoulders, loose and somewhat accepting, while the human hand seems almost hesitant to touch because the skeleton could break or disappear. After looking at your avatar/icon I at first assumed it may have been a self portrait? But I wasn’t sure. Regardless, this painting is beautiful; it blew me away. I don’t know whether I want to keep analyzing or cry: I lost someone close to me, too, as I’m sure everyone has… however I was with him for a full week and never uttered a single goodbye. Now I would give my limbs or my lungs—my heart—just to have him here so I could tell him goodbye and how much I love him.
Sorry, I’m rambling. Please know, though, that I thought this piece was amazing. The expression and emotions were very powerful. Overall, a very lovely, lonely piece. Congrats on your well-deserved DD.

This is a gorgeous and haunting painting, but I was so sad when I read your artist comments. Of course people who die love us back. I lost my Grandmother nearly a year ago yet every day I am filled with her love. She loved me when she was alive, and it wasn't her fault she died, so why would it mean she could no longer love me? If I were to die, I would certainly never stop loving those close to me!

Meanwhile, I'm thinking of the music video of Nightmare by Avenged Sevenfold. Y'know, the part where Zacky Vengeance dances with a skeleton.
