Comments on: "Diminutives" (67)

  1. Love that ‘War’—as if I could see the tugs, feel the exuberance, even hear the laughter!

    (PS: It’s been a while, I hope you’re doing just fine)

  2. Oh Elena, I don´t know why your blog keeps disappearing from my Reader… Nice to see your new work and evolution. The red scarf captivates with its gaze and the upper one reminds me the whites used in Sorolla´s beautiful beach paintings. Great!

  3. Beautiful paintings, Elena. I like the stories they might tell… 🙂

  4. Beautiful blog 😉

  5. Your paintings are exceptionally great. Lots of emotions and beauty. 🙂

  6. Beautiful and intense – great work, Elena!

  7. Wünsche dir einen wunderschönen Mittwoch Grüße und Umarmung Gislinde

  8. Oh so gorgeous!
    Those ‘earth angels’ are glorious, Elena. Both diminutives full of tension and passion.

  9. These are so wonderful, Elena! Love the tension in both. The moment caught before something changes everything.

  10. Elena, I love the sense of action depicted in the first one. And the portrait is unique in it’s composition. Beautiful pieces, both.

  11. It is lovely to behold the playfulness and trust of sisters with each other, just the right amount of tension in the scene. And the littlest one in the middle!

  12. You’ve captured the girls’ movement and the combination of strength and delicacy. The portrait is lovely, too. The sideways glance is arresting–perhaps she has a secret?

  13. There is such a wonderful playfulness in both paintings, in one quite literally and in the other more in the facial expression. Both are lovely paintings.

  14. I like so much the girls. this is so dynamic!

  15. I like the rhythm, movement and tension in the first image – with a hint of Degas thrown in for good measure!

  16. These are both wonderful Elena! Love the movement in the first one…your art is just amazing!

    • Thank you, Robin! I’ve just been to your excellent blog, and I have to tell you, I have a hard time just keeping up with your fabulous posts, never mind the energy it takes you to make them happen! YOU are amazing!

  17. The top one – three girls have a half-serious tug o’ war over a confirmation dress – brilliant movement in what could be an Edvard Munch setting. The bottom one reminds me of Whistler’s portraits of ‘le petit cardinal’ – in fact there is a touch of Whistler about your work, mainly about your use of shadow. Just a touch.

  18. You sure make magic and that makes me so happy! Truly beautiful work ~

  19. These are fabulous…I love the action and the mystery!

  20. Magical. You are so talented! 🙂

  21. Incredible Elena!

  22. One so playful, the other so moody and intense, both so beautiful!

  23. Carol Baldwin (above) said what I wanted to say: You are amazing!

  24. piękne obrazy !

  25. I love the movement of the ‘Sisters’, Elena and the stories the eyes of the girl in a red scarf speak… Beautiful, my dear friend. 🙂

  26. Both paintings are beautiful – love the movement and light in the first one. Love the dramatic eyes in the second painting.

    MaryJane 🙂

  27. Love the light and movement in Tug of War

  28. opps…. didn’t realize there were two on this post and only saw the first! The portrait is captivating! Terrific! ~Rita

  29. Great capture of a moment in time.. Beautifully light! ~Rita

  30. such emotion! such beauty!
    You are amazing!
