Such moodiness in her expression and it is emphasized by the position of her head. She looks how I feel!
Love the freedom in your painting !
Thanks, Julie and Jane.The blue raining down and the tilt of her head do make for a moody feeling. I like how she washes down the center of the page.
Absolutely agree- moody and expressive!I love your work Jean. Always provocative.
The blue really works, and I love her mouth.
Thank you , Pamo and Karin.Karin, your Haha post deserves a wide audience, as well as a targeted one, the decision makers behind the proposed desecration.
Has quiet intensity - well done, Jean.
It's difficult, isn't it? Because I won't change the minds of those who want to destroy this area, any more than they will change the minds of we who want to save it. So the challenge is to get people who don't care, one way or the other, to realize what will be lost. But mostly, I just end up preaching to the choir.
I really think your piece has the power to persuade.
Did you worry that the orange would be too vibrant for the blue and disrupt the moodiness? I would have, but it doesn't. I'm surprised they work so well together for this subject and mood. Very, very nice.
Thanks, Banjo.I don't worry. I just try it out, and if it doesn't please me, then I do another.
