Alone in a one room tenement, sits the Little Girl



girl, tenement, alone, room, bed, fireplace, slum

I have been creating…it seems my whole life.

I am who I am.

Maybe at times I see things just a tad bit different…from the norm.

I have enjoyed learning how to do my artwork all on my own.

If someone else can do it…I will certainly try…and I will put my own twists and turns into my work to make it truly my own.

As I said…I am who I am…and I am ME!

    Oh wow…. reminds me of me. I lived in a tenement, yonks ago… and struggled as a young girl – as you do when you’re young. This image is so full of pain and sorrow….and heartache. Beautiful work.

  • Wendi…This must be one of the best compliments I have ever received…I am thrilled that this touched you in such a memorable way…..Way cool….Thank you

    GREAT artists make everything look really easy; like there’s absolutely nothing to it. I mean, when you look at their work you can’t even see the technical details; as it’s completely invisible; they manage to make their work look just so entirely ‘natural’. However, if you are a total ‘amateur’ like me they you KNOW it’s as difficult as sheer hell to be able to achieve that so ‘natural’ look; maybe, you have to be ‘born talented’; which, I’m afraid, I never ever was; for me art has always been an uphill struggle going nowhere; which causes me to admire and appreciate seeing your WONDERFUL artwork all the more. A ‘master’ if you ask me! ;-)

  • Thank you Paul. I started out by teaching myself. I world see someone elses work and try to duplicate it as close as I could. Once I had my own bearing…I created my own style. Although my work is all different…It has a style of it’s own…mine…lol. Thank you for your kind comments
