I think that in this piece you embrace the fearless and free spirited nature of a child. She is not concerned with mites or bites or claw marks... only the beautiful moment where she gets to intimately interact with this bird. You are so gifted in the deliverance of your messages. Not knowing you is strange because I wonder if you are even aware of exactly what you are saying with these images or if it is just that you are a divine artistic translator. That is in no way supposed to be insulting... It is possible that these paintings just fly out of your hands without a whole lot of thought. Look at Mozart.
i love the clash here...the innocence of a child...the tongue grabbed by a bird who is usually there to create and initiate song and voice...it is startling, really...i then was pulled into the sideways sky..the blue background with a blocked rainbow...i feel like this is me, when waking up from a nightmare....the lark grabs the tongue that forms the words, and i am lost in a blue world of descending rainbows...yes, i know this place as well.
That face! I would love to see this one on something other than a gradien-like color background. The image has so much emotion and content, and then the colors in the background... you're the art genius, though, I'm sure you did it for a reason.
Nice emotion in her face, as always. And Ouch.
A bird landed on my cousin's head once and then hopped off, but it startled her... I can't imagine what it would have done if it had landed on her tongue.
Wow, awesome way of using such simple imagery to get across some sort of message. I really like how the spatters of paint on her face go with the whole rainbow thing, and it shows how even dark creatures like crows (I'm assuming the crow is feeding her) can bring light/good into the world.
You're my hero (insert nerdy snort here). Seriously, I can only pray to someday have a quarter of the skill you have with acrylic. Note to all who are reading this: LOOK AT THE BIG VERSION!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the reflection of the rainbow on the left on the girl's face, my tongue hurts just looking at her perfectly detailed tongue, and the hair... you are so damn good at painting/drawing/sketching hair. Even as I am writing this I can't stop scrolling up to look at the painting again and again and again... Do you sell any of your stuff maybe in print form?
this is really pretty not to mention disturbing. thanks for inducing bird-ridden nightmares in my sleep! hehe just kidding. although the birds terrified me...
i think that your lack of comments on your art is a good thing - it lets us make up our own minds (obviously), lets you glean knowledge about what others think is the meaning behind it all, and you don't have to type so much. all i'm saying is, you are supremely (almost beatnik-like !!!) cool the way you are, son't let anyone convince you to change a damn thing.
I like how simple this is. The background reminds me of and old vaccuum cleaner we had years and years ago. It had a little circle on it with similar colors. I had totally forgotten about it. She looks so happy, but she'd better watch out. Having an open mouth around birds. Hehe, yuck.
the birds are stealing poor celia's ability to speak.... why would they do that? are they teaching her a lesson? in a way the rainbow's bright cheerful colors are ominous rather than happy, considering what i am seeing here....
this reminds me of the scene where the school children are running from the ravens in the movie The Birds. that scene totally freaked me out as a child.
yes, indeed. this is really really really good. i also like the contrast between the happy go lucky rainbow in the back, and the birds pulling the tongue outta the girl (at least thats what i see goin on). I wish i knew what your intention was with it, but, i also like how its open to interpretation. if it werent for the bird on her face, i'd think she was laughing.
Your work is getting less complex with the advent of your 'surge' in popularity. *wink wink*
Anyway the main reason I like you work is that I can take so many things out of it, like I have stated before. (duh me) That is why I write like you paint, strange, you may not agree, but the evidence cannot be excluded my dear.
The colors of paint splattered on her face are a very nice touch- it would be really interesting if you added something to your descriptions on what your art means to you- I see so much intricate symbolism that I never really can guess at... I really think one of the most amazing things about art like yours is that there's so much behind it. I adore your art.
