"..Because live creates the sense for it."
The Conversation by Hillel Kagan
Not sure how I missed this fine painting (maybe because before I had limited the upload size, and the reproduction wasn't so clear then). Viewing this full size now is a real spectacle, and I'm changing my rating to masterpiece (that's a first for me), as I believe it's one of the best works you've done. Other than the understated tones, the exciting pictorial format of light thrusting and breaking, it's a gold mine for critical/philosophical analysis and interpretation with that figure disappearing into shade, and the calm knowing gaze of his interlocutor. One day Kagan, after you're long gone, this one will be the subject of a dissertation... [Goto..]
Ecco, now my heart has found some peace with this one, tonight. [GoTo..]
My headphones . . . . . They saved my life . . . . . . . . [GoTo..]
I found the beautiful colors of the previous photo very isolated and lonely. I covered the face in red and then washed it. I covered the rest with purple and then washed it. It must be a kitchen approach. Today, I again feel there is something missing. I have only tonight left. If i don't find anything tonight, my cousin will not have a painting from Roma this time. For sure i can prove i tried ..... Haaaa haaaaa [GoTo..]
The boy in the shop had given me a big fat blu oil pastel stick. I was curious to see how it works. [GoTo..]
After a while the drawing seemed incomplete and I wanted something forceful to happen to it so came the birds which are feeding.I like the forms of the birds-not peacocks,although it is an idea.Did not intend to present them as phallic symbols but rather as ominous creatures.Even more simply I just wanted to make the drawing work [GoTo..]
Whatever you end up doing with this work Fotini, please do continue to document it's progress here. [GoTo..]
This is really a funny story... Some people have some nerve.... Good for you to answer what you did. By the way this thing about criticism, it is my experience that the difference between men and women is that while women respond with infuriated screaming, men respond with the most irrelevant, bitter, sexist comments that have nothing to do with the subject of the criticism whatsoever...
There are not many places to exhibit, in this local area without having to join a art group. There are two but I decline to join as they do selection on the art work and no guarantee you will get your work in exhibition. It costs a lot to frame your work, and also the amount of hours spent on the work. There was a census for a gallery to be opened in the area, said it was not viable.
Ha ha! Well done Maestro! Yes you're to be commended as again it's my own laziness that's caused the problem.
I made my comment, LINK got the successpage, clicked to return and got an error 29 notice (I think) but saw in my inbox that the comment was made. Went to the page and saw all the other comments were changed. I believe that somehow or other I have broken AP once and for all. Maybe that's a good thing and I should be commended, you tell me.
Hello Denise yes it is very difficult being an artist, especially when you are your own critic on your work. Set up a blog last year, people looking not buying. Hoping to do some competitions this year, get to be known more. Expanding my options, worth a try.
Hello Again Janet... Actually, if the image you mention is of a stag, it was there all along. Your portfolio now has 2 copies of it:
