You forget.
Quite a bit of work in this one, it's been through many incarnations and looks/means/contains nothing close to what it first did. Hopefully I got the colors right on this one - lots of back and forth between the lcd and the crt to check. Photo was taken on a flight to New York :)

I feel the title is integral to this picture, which is why I put it in the frame. This is an interesting picture for me because I tend to self-personify the characters in my art, making them male. This is a bit of a change of pace as the character is female, making it a little less personal and more ambiguous.
Many thanks to ~Lunasmight for his discussion and suggestions. :thanks:

Please Full-View and Enjoy!

Max, this is amazing. The way she is, alone, above the world... To me it looks like she's walking across the sky. What you mentioned about death in an earlier comment seemed to resonate with this. Essentially, to forget is to die. Without memory, without knowledge of the past, there is no life, no present. When we forget, we might all never realize where we are, striding aloof through empty air in white dresses (Or white pants, if you're a man. But some men might want dresses and that's alright too, I suppose. After all, men wore robes and skirts for thousands of years before trousers were invented. But I digress.) Anyways, what I guess I'm trying to say is that this struck a chord with me. Sometimes, it's so safe to be alone, that the rest of the world... you forget.
Thank you. I am very glad my art is personally meaningful to you. Let's remember before it's too late, shall we? I also really like your interpretation. We need our past to give our present context, and I also tend to think that the past is something we reconstruct inside our minds. I also feel that there is a part of constructing our future that defines us as well (This is why I am so fascinated by Anterograde amnesia). Here's an interesting question: which would you rather have: no past, or no (meaningful) future?

Black pants are really more my style, in any case :D
