Oil on Paper - 12"x 10" approx. C&C welcome.

Her miserablenous endears me to her. She is going to be hung in the bathroom when she is dry! LOL

Haunting and intriguing. I admire the use of grey--which I think is bold. Fearless.

It happened again but this time she left her shadow lying on the wall. Her soul danced like a minaret on a cut flower trying to remember when it all began and yet forget when it all started

This gets to me. I want to protect my little ballerina who is wearing the tutu her mommy made for her (long ago).

I agree with the others. It is very weird, which I mean as a tremendous compliment. Well done Nikki, Doug

As with Picasso's Gurenica

I find the sadness, injury, pain too unbearable to enjoy
yet at the same time I cannot look away

a powerful piece
but this shall not be on the dining room wall
perhaps in the library
where it will be near tales of woe

we learn too slowly and forget too quickly the pain of war

And where is the pink frog?? I think he belongs in here.

Seriously, though, a beautiful and haunting painting, Nikki.

Susan, hopefully frog is in her soul! Well, one would like to think so anyway because she is just too miserable looking. In fact it is the most miserable painting that I have ever painted.
