Great painting. Background is superb. The man needs a bit more dimensionality in my opinion. Otherwise perfect.

Very interesting. I am wondering if someone is going to throw a noose around his neck, of is he a ghost ,as he seems transparent. To me it has a very eerie feeling about it. Lenore

How about "Behind the wall" he looks like he is between the inside and outside wall of a house.

Attic dweller?? Yes interesting.. I really like the Bg & agree the man needs either more transparancy or more substance..

Not sure why, but "Waiting For Eternity" is what came to me. Claudia

I'm sure there is a deep personel meaning of the painting for you which is o.k. but i think you're hooked on perspectives. Maybe you're not done with it???..... Theolwon

Is that a tube of paint hanging on the end of the string? Curious. The string seems to be tangled around the wood. Curiouser and curiouser.
I think this is the spirit of a frustrated artist restricted by the taboos of modern life (depicted by the heavy wood framework) and fickle mankind (the tangled string), afraid of the beast of self-awareness threatening to break out in him (the red in the bg). Therefore title = “Timidity”.

It would be neat to see the figure as a varnished, glossed silloette

Thanks Everyone : )

this was (is) a 'rescue' attempt of a piece that was the other side up right, a young girl contemplating a locked gate ... she was looking pretty goofy so i flipped, covered most of her (the red is what's left of her hoodie), and tried working it again ... i have been unable to find any inspiration or story with the rework either ... whatever to do with that i don't know ... stick in the wip pile and try again in a few weeks or months ... it does have some interest, just no reason for being ...

it's a lock at the end of the string, but the tube of paint is a workable idea i might play with ... that works also with 'the understudy' idea ... hmm, perhaps there is potential for a story

thanks again, brainstorming - gotta love it

oh, and i will build 'him' up a bit more : )
