    Must have missed this while I was away.
    An excellent example of zoom plagiarism.
    It has the feel of a ‘Marie’ painting – but the relative lack of comments demonstrates how much of the ‘art’ is in the context.
    It really does give me an eerie sense of bleakness… transported from the original.
    Hidden gem – well done

  • thanks mufa, yeah it’s funny that, context and your own mood when painting. this is actually one of my personal favourites, I saw her so clearly in kafkas painting and I did this in a bit of a frenzy, trying to keep the mood. perhaps it is just too pink…. :-)

    I missed this one the first time around! – (and I still can’t find it in my painting!!:))
    Out of context and looked at objectively, this is a very strong painting, very much in the way that ‘Witness’ and your other freely painted work is – there is a definite window into a part of your soul in these paintings Marie – hang onto it (don’t bother about the lack of comments) you have that uncommon gift of expression – mind/eye/hand/brush with nothing getting in the way – Fabulous painting!!

  • thanks so much Nigel, it was a great painting to paint and I am very happy with it, your comment means a lot to me
