Title: “I Wish”
Medium: Oil on acrylic, and paper mache collage on paper
Size: 16” X 21"

Following closely to my earlier work, Melancholia, this work tries to capture that longing that words cannot describe but, “the eyes are a window to the soul” as people often say.

    An ideal, a “something else”, a “je ne sais quoi”, we humans always search for… something.
    I’m not knocking it; that’s how goals and dreams are achieved; that’s how we find what makes
    us tick. Now to the painting. The blue is so rich at its deepest, and takes us into reverie
    as it fades. I find the yellow green energetic, as if these are unspoken thoughts and
    passions, ready to leap into action, when he says the word. This is really different, Edy and I love it!

  • Thanks to you Franny, I got the colors to show because of your photo correction tutorial which helped to produce an image that looked exactly like the real thing in color and tone (well 99%). And as usual, Ilove your interpretation and impression of it. Thanks again :)
