My world is a wonder of visual candy and foreboding shadow shapes vying every waking moment for my full attention.

  1. I found adolescence such a topsy turvy difficult time. So innocent and unwary and so many difficulties to face. For me the birds look slightly scary much like the frequent nightmares I suffered.

  2. Ah Elena and growing with a large body-filled sense of enlightened new-found power or freedom. There is an elegance about her. The visuals keep coming with high-quality. I love this!

  3. It’s a both breathtaking and complex image. I can just keep looking at it and find new stories within the frame all the time. It’s magic, it’s intense, it’s eternal. For me it’s one of the strongest paintings I have seen from your hand. Fantastic!

    1. I’m kinda pleased with it as well. Thank you so much Otto. Your comments are much appreciated.

  4. This is so enigmatic! Are they encouraging her? Are they just curious? Are they being aggressive? I can relate this to the young idealistic and inexperienced teacher confronted with a class of challenging teenagers!!

  5. Adolescence…that hair’s breadth between being skewered and being free…precarious, exhilarating…and parents hold their breath. Been through it 4 times. Some of the puncture wounds went quite deep.

    1. Thanks much Marcelo. I’m glad that the black and white resonates with you as well as me:)
