Oh Elena, this has a feel of the Forties about this one, it’s lovely. Xx
It’s the forties all right. Thank you Jane:)
Lovely, yes innocence seems to sum up the age somehow Elena and you’re capturing it brilliantly!
Many thanks Adrian!
Thank you Mark!
The Descent series is a favorite. I think when we all look back in our old photos we will find her.
Yes:) I hope so. Thanks so much Robin.
Beautiful! Such a lovely painting, Elena. I really like your mix of drawing and painting!
Much appreciated Anette:)
…..such a very sensitive expression .. a little diffident … but facing and looking forward …
Lovely Elena .
Thank you Poppy:)
This is beautiful.
Thanks much Anne:)
Pretty amazing. Increible, me gusta mucho. Que buen trabajo, adelante, do dejes de hacerlo.
Muchas Gracias Becker!
I love this new series. A wall full of your decendents would be amazing.
So lovely of you Jill. Thank you:)
Painting is all about extracting a hidden image from a blank sheet. You’ve done that wonderfully here, Elena!
Thanks so much Millie!
Gorgeous! It’s almost like a time lapse of a little girl growing up. If that makes sense! Beautifully delicate.
It does. Thanks Cindy:)
I’m a fan. There is something historical and beautiful and waif like. Beautiful!
Thanks so much Carol!
Wanted to leave comments on these a while back but i struggled to load your blog for some reason – I just utterly love this series Elena, it is just as if a memory, or an essence of history, the essential-ness of each person has made itself softly but assertively onto the page..as if they had chosen a moment to drop back into, just for a second..I can’t put this into words very well but it’s just the elements of art, history and connection that I love..for me, these images are so very soft but slightly heartbreaking, a comfort and a tinge of sadness..this little girl gave me a lovely sense of recognition..I know I really do love them as I’m waffling again 🙂
Cath, I not only understand exactly what you are saying, but I am so very grateful for your articulation. Yes, you know exactly how I feel while I’m painting these and exactly what I’m after. Can’t thank you enough, but a humble thank you will have to do:)
Love the smile on her face. Very nice.
Thank you Jess:)
—– ? or is she asking me my innocence ?
No, simply with an open expression, declaring hers:)
May be the reason why I saw like that was — I know
that I’m guilty. 😀
Aren’t we all;)
So delicate and bright!
Thank you Daisy!
The controlled understatement, with just sufficient weight given to essential details, conveys the concept of innocence very effectively.,,
So kind of you to say Louis. Thank you.
All in her smile! Beautiful, Elena!! 🙂 xx
Many thanks Marina:)
Like looking from another dimension and being aware of all the subtle things in this world…So very magical and timeless:)
Oh, thanks so much:)
Oh Elena, such sweet, carefree innocence . .. . beautiful!
Thanks so much Patti! I especially appreciate your comments during your break.
Perfectly titled and beautifully done. On the cusp…
A fragile time. Thank you Karen.
Beautifully captured tentativeness – lovely!
Thank you Richard!
Fresh face as pre-teen. I like the clean approach.
Very nice sketch, dear Elena!
Have a wonderful day! 🙂
Thank you Stefania, You too!
Hi Elena, I’m loving these “old” paintings in your Descent series.
Many thanks Carol!
