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

  1. Another sketch that conveys much emotion! The person portrayed seem a little tired, dejected and sad! Very nice sketch created.
    Thank you for sharing with us, dear Elena! 🙂

  2. I find many of your images provoke quiet contemplation Elena and this one is no exception .
    So very tenderly rendered . an expression and body language no one could be in doubt about . Resigned indeed .

  3. You’ve captured that resignation so beautifully Elena, this is just what my dear friend with Motor Neurone looked like right towards the end of his long battle. He could still raise a smile though for others…

  4. The expression on the face superbly captures the feelings.
    I thought i saw myself in there…
    Resigned and in sorrow
    with a soul and mind refusing to follow the physical decline.
    Motorised chair for now – wheels to follow …

    I had never conceived such situation from an Artistic angle.
    Seeing this painting somehow made me feel a little better.

    1. I’m so pleased that it helped a bit. I suppose it’s universal. We all understand, at one point or another. Thanks so much, Tigress. I hope today is a very good day.

  5. I feel like I just saw myself. As always, this is gorgeously done. I would love to see how you do these, if they are as organic or you sketch your idea? No pressures… I’m just curious. Always curious!

    1. I’m working VERY loosely from family photos, only pulling what I want and then changing from there. I don’t sketch, but just put the brush to paper. That works better for me. Thanks much, Linda!:)
