Part 2: Dolls House

The second collaboration with Cath at  Settle and Chase. 

Dolls House to me, has a haunted feel- where past activity is implied.  So, I knew I wanted to bring new weirdness and flight to the piece, via watercolor bird-figures.

Part 3:The Woodpile tomorrow…

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

  1. Ooo..this is one is definitely creepy! I like the way the whole thing gives a feel of it being a dream…as if I were brave enough to venture into the house, I’d face my fear…of something.

  2. I love this collaboration! The gauzy dreamy effect is disturbing and seems like a peek into some corner of the mind that is not open to the public, very well executed!

  3. I’m left with the impression that this transitory … that I want to know what went before and feel a nervous excitement at what will follow after.

    Well done Elena!

  4. There’s some unfinished story here ….
    Poignancy … the Bird – Children could almost be keening for a lost …..
    Beautiful composition Elena .

  5. This is really jarring in a good way – love the otherworldliness of your bird-figures against Cath’s almost scientific looking house. A memorable image and quite lovely.

  6. Very very nice’ve created this painting, dear Elena! I like it very much. I love the light effect. Congratulations!
    Have a wonderful day and a wonderful new week. Big hugs, much love, Stefania! 🙂

  7. Thank you both for transporting me to a world that hovers between fantasy and reality, where my beloved bird-children seem to flutter around humming a mournful song.

  8. Elena, this is such a great idea. I really liked yesterdays post, but couldn’t find any words to say beyond hitting that ‘Like’ button.
    I wonder if the bird folk have happened across this haunted dwelling or if they themselves are haunting its foggy emptiness with their presence?

  9. Woohoo! This is fun! 🙂 I love what you’ve done with this Elena..really completes the story..
