View Full Version : WAY out on a limb!

What an all new first for me!
Watercolor - airbrush - abstract! 7"x10"
What incredible fun!
But I need input. I like it, I think. My friends and family are use to graphite realism, so this kind of stuff blows their minds.:confused: So I really could use "artistry" input. I was so thrilled with doing this piece, I am actually thinking of doing a very large interactive (audience) involved piece like this at an up coming show.
All comments welcome.
Thanks -

This piece invokes a sense of a spirit flowing upward towards the light of love and serenity.

LOVE IT............ It appears to me you have moved into another realm, so to speak! I hope you continue with this direction because to my eyes you have touched something special inside yourself.

WOW! Thank you Mary. That means so much - you have no idea. I am a self-taught, having only been "playing" in art since I was diagnosised with Multiple Sclerosis just over two years ago and this "artsy stuff" just started falling out of me. I truly take it as a sign from God. This new "realm" as you call it - has an incredible flow of energy and emotion that I had never experienced before. So your descriptive interpretation helps me to understand my new found emotions.
With Sincere Appreciation -

Please keep the comments coming - critics welcome.:)

There's a feeling of fragility and delicacy about this piece that is strong and appealing.

I think you guys are being TOO nice. This is way cool. I figured for sure someone would say something about the 3 sets of 3 dots. It is more just a personal thing to me, but can anyone think what it might represent?

I can make a few guesses, but I am in suspense.
What do the dots represent?

Well I was hoping for atleast a guess, but that is okay. For me it represents the Trinity. Keeping it alway near. Just giving credit where credit is due.

i agree, and i like it very much.
i went to see your site: your graphite works are beautiful, and are not "usual realm" at all, there's an imagination point of view :clap: :clap: .
the jump to abstracts looks to me "natural" and your friends will learn to know the other side of your art, i'm sure :) 'cos it's very beautiful and it's not a nonsense, it has feeling.
keep on and send more!
thank you for sharing, rapolina.

I have been saving my pennies to purchase a motorcycle in two weeks. Now I am wondering should I purchase more supplies to venture more into this "new realm". I no large watercolor paper larger than 7"x 10" and have a few pages of that remaining; only an inexpensive starter set of watercolor and single stage airbrush. Oh my - Decisions! Decisions! Can I have you three as permanent features in my studio? I would get so much done!
Thank you again so much for you wonderful words of incouragement. You all do such lovely work as well, so it means alot!
