Waiting by DLKeur

Postby DLKeur » Sat Jul 12, 2008 9:27 pm

This is about waiting. It is about "hunger" -- for love, sustenance, care...you name it -- an animal or a person who waits in that place where hope is no longer, where anger and despair have also been surmounted by time, and there is only waiting.

Excellent work, Dawn. The little white spot in the eye expresses all that, and the longing. The white spot is everything, and I know how difficult is to place it in just the right spot.

This is your face.

I can tell the displacement between your eye and nose.

Also, the shape of your nose.

This is you without the hat on and your hair down. Open and honest...yet vulnerable too...but only because you want them to think so.

Like the possum.

A
ave move Dawn.

No offence intended but your title/ explanation makes no sense to me nor anyone else’s interpretation. I guess my
ain doesn’t work that way.
However, I've looked at this several times and find it so soothing to view and I don’t know why? Is this what good abstract work is suppose to do for the viewer? I could probably explain it but it would be too long, hard and I’d probably lack the exact vocabulary.
However quite simply, I could see this hanging in my home along with 30 or so of my own personal sculptures, rock works, wood carvings, paintings and my few precious original of admired painters.
I really love this work Dawn,
Al

Oh Dawn, I can't say anymore then Al and others told you already. Yes! Yes! Yes! It is one of the greatest abstracts I have ever seen. I did see it in your sea weed too. Fantastic!
Create more such beautiful paintings, please. You are unbelievable Dawn.

At first I was struck saddened by this.
It is sad.
but the warmth of the work
ings a stillness, a peace...
I'm not sad anymore.
:)

Love this work.

Dawn... love this; although I would call it more Expressionistic/Surrealistic. I can see the waiting... waiting for someone to gently
ush her hair aside, a gentle/light kiss on the forehead and a whisper "everything is going to be alright". God would do that.

Absolutely beautiful. It has a feeling of immortality to it; to an immortal there is no hope or despair, because there is neither a beginning or an end, no discovery or loss, and no surprises. There would only be a wavering between the serenity of immortality and the longing for the experiences and emotions that can only be felt by mortals.

Forgive me if I am waxing too philosophic.

Nothing to forgive. I think your interpretation and reaction to the work is beautiful.

subtle...gentle...great color...simple...when you keep it focused and simple it's really hard to **** up.
What I lack in talent I more than make up for with enthusiasm!
