This one has a slightly surreal quality to me- it looks to me as if she is either dreaming ..or sleep-walking..I like the colours in this one..a bit different for me..I had done an unusual background with strong purples and oranges months ago..not knowing what to paint in the foreground..then came back last week and all of a sudden she came to me ,this woman in a forest like setting with a small night bird.. The bush where the bird sits..is all scratch work ..where I scratched through the outer thicker paint to reveal the lighter colours below..I left this one bush like that ..as it went well with this theme of a dream of some type..
I think it worked out quite well..In fact I like this one very much …hope you do too!

    I like the way the sun peeps between the trees. The colours are autumn colours, which are my favourites. The slightly sharp chin gives this lady a rather cute look. Definitely one of your best ones this Cathy.

    This is very dreamy and the colors are great! Very symbolic!!!

  • Thanks so much kim ..glad you like it..yes I can’t quite work out the symbols yet ..maybe it will come to me later ..but it’s different for me..and I know there is something in this ..a message of sorts..I just haven’t figured it all out yet ..you have a good eye for things like this though ..symbolism ..yes a lot of my paintings are symbolic…of something or another..most I can work out..some I can’t.

    thanks agin

    xxooo

    and why does she have that small pot..I paint a lot of pots because my husband is a potter ..but I just feel that this pot is for something ..I hope she isn’t trying to stuff that bird into the pot ..hhha!!!!!maybe she was poor at the time and looking for dinner ..hhee!!!

    only joking here..
