Something old revisited


I'm starting to go into my inner world once again.  The feminine within wants a voice, to be taken away from the world of material consumption, so I listen.  This painting was sold a number of years ago, but it is still a part of me.  I love the echo of words that seem to scream for attention.  Perhaps another painting will birth itself in the near future.

  1. Looks pretty deep. I'm no artist but this tells me the painting is so sad, its screaming out to get out of that world and in here. And the one torturing it is its past via the shadow. The blue line color to me looks like the actual wound. A very deep wound.

  2. Greetings Suzanne,
    A thought provoking painting and perhaps within those echoes, is the soothing sweet innocence of the voice of the inner child. Indeed, this may well be a catalyst for the birth of another painting.
    May you have a peaceful, positive weekend in Victoria.
    In kindness, Gary :)

  4. Very intriguing this painting. It is a kind of almost sexy creature (maybe her chubby legs?!) and I would stare at it for ages.
    Interesting though.

  5. It does inspire a lot of femininity, indeed. I like the illusion of high heels.

    2. I love art...I enjoy drawing in charcoal sometimes...but I could never rise to your talent :). I'd be curious to see smth you created in charcoal, if any...

    3. Hi Petronela: I also love charcoal!!! I enjoy doing more abstract drawings with this media, probably because I don't have the complete skills of using it. Charcoal can be more difficult to use at first, but it is a wonderful medium.
      I may have some older work that I can show you. I'll have a look.
      Hugs!!!! :)

  10. Hi Suzanne,

    I love art when I was in school and it became my hobby but as years went by, I had to put it aside and moved on because of time constraint and career. Artists have creative souls, their art work comes from their heart. I love this painting, it can be intepreted in many ways but only the artist know the real meaning that lies behind it.

    Nice blog, hope you can visit mine when you're free. Have a nice day!

  11. Hi Zunnur:
    Thank you for taking the time to leave a message. Yes, I do agree that artists have creative souls. Art is like breathe to me, without creating I would surely die.
    I hope that you are still creating art now in your life.
    You have a wonderful day!!!

  12. Hi Suzanne,

    Sometimes we need to close to hear us better, then it becomes easier to show to the world what we do best.
