i think is my favourite so far. Not just because of the piece itself but because of the symbolism. It is so powerful....
I like it a lot! (I seem to be into moons these days.) I wonder if there are legends or folk tales about birds flying to the moon?
I don't know any folktales or legend particularyly but I have always been very drawn to the moon. I realized today that I started to draw bird flying to the sun or moon after I nearly died from spinal meningitis. For years after I wanted to go up to the highest mountain. I felt myself being drawn upwards. The doctor said I was as near death as anyone gets. I have read that a persons spirit leaves the body through the head and I have often wondered, if I was so close to death, was I being drawn upwards and was left with that sensation. Sounds a bit bizarre, I know, but who knows. I've read quite a bit about near-death experiences and I find it very fascinating. Who knows for sure?
I love this painting - it feels so powerful and mysterious. It makes me want to know the "story" behind it. It's wonderful and emotional. Keep at it!
I like it. I could see it being finished, but also, I could see it wanting something else. Tough call. Put it aside, maybe it will come to you later.One of the good things I am finding about this project is that each single painting becomes less "precious." It doesn't have to be perfect, it doesn't have to be brilliant. It is what it is. Yesterday i wanted to paint over the pattern in FG's dress, but I ran out of time and left it... and it's still okay. I moved on to the next painting instead of needing to get it right.There's room for getting things wrong. I think that might be true of life, too.
I'm with Rose...this is some powerful symbolism. I like the simplicity of it...it reminds me a lot of Native art....Raven is an important figure..very lovely...
I guess it depends if you want it to be a complete and pretty piece or a raw and powerful piece. Me I would go for raw and powerful... but then... *grin*
