Saudade is defined as a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one cares for and/or loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing might never be had again.

This painting is titled Saudade.

We are longing for the abandoned love.

Saudade is part of the #abandoned series. There have been so many deaths and countless murders in my community. This painting can represent the deceased or the broken hearted family that remains.

Saudade is a feeling of longing, melancholy, or nostalgia that is supposedly characteristic of the Portuguese or Brazilian temperament.
