DescriptionHer heart was shattered one too many times. So she locked it up and threw the key to the gods. Perhaps she regrets. After much pleading they tossed it back to earth she's reaching for the key to love again but it's just slightly out of grasp.......has she learned her lesson?Thank you to the lovely stock providersj90s*MadameM-stock*Photodream-stockand of course the lovely model~Valentine-FOV-Stockthe lyrics to the music that partially inspired thisAlicia KeysHe broke my heartAnd now it's raining just to rub it inI'm at your doorI feel so crazy 'bout itYou'll say, 'I told you so', you saw it long agoYou knew he had to goI finally came around, I'm back on solid groundCan't let it get me downIt's alright, it's alright, it's alrightIt's alright, it's alright, it's alrightYes, I was burned but I called it a lesson learnedMistake overturned so I called it a lesson learnedMy soul has returned so I call it a lesson learnedAnother lesson learnedSometimes some liesCan take a minute to fully realizeHis tears, your eyes30 seconds to apologizeYou give it one more chance just like the time beforeBut he already knows you'd give a hundred moreUntil that night in bed, you wake up in a sweatYou're racing to the door, can't take it anymoreI was burned but I called it a lesson learnedMistake overturned so I called it a lesson learnedMy soul has returned so I call it a lesson learnedAnother lesson learnedA life perfect ain't perfectIf you don't know what the struggle's forFalling down ain't falling downIf you don't cry when you hit the floorIt's called the past 'cause I'm getting pastAnd I ain't nothing like I was beforeYou oughta see me nowYes, I was burned but I called it a lesson learnedMistake overturned so I called it a lesson learnedMy soul has returned so I call it a lesson learnedAnother lesson learnedWhoa, said yes, I was burned but I called it a
Tara Naomi Boliek, Saint Louis, Missouri USA Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement Born in St. Louis, Missouri my style is very much that of the outsider art movement
"The term Outsider Art was coined by art critic Roger Cardinal in 1972 as an English synonym for Art Brut (IPA: /aʁ bʁyt/; meaning "raw art" or "rough art"), a label created by French artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture; Dubuffet focused particularly on art by insane-asylum inmates.
While Dubuffet's term is quite specific, the English term "Outsider Art" is often applied more broadly, to include certain self-taught or Naïve art makers who were never institutionalized. Typically, those labeled as Outsider Artists have little or no contact with the institutions of the mainstream art world; in many cases, their work is discovered only after their deaths. Much Outsider Art illustrates extreme mental states, unconventional ideas, or elaborate fantasy worlds."
My style is mainly non traditional digital art using tools like adobephotoshop corel painter & paint shop pro and many others. I have awacom tablet attached to my computer to allow me to "draw" or "paint" more easily.
