This piece is titled "Sally Revisited" and is done in watercolor markers on canvas. The canvas was primed with white acrylic and a thin clear coat of acrylic paint.

Hello Lisa. Your painting appeals to me. It is interesting, because it is open to imagination, and it challanges. It looks to me like a dream may be, the painter's dream, it looks sad to me because she has no face, but may be it is just because of the darkness, may be it signs just the energy of Sally, or what she has left as memories of hers, very special and remaining in my mind.

I like this as well. Assuming that it looks like the photograph in reality, I think it is a good piece of art, but i would not put it on my wall because it is disturbing. it is more like a nightmare, not just a dream.

Thanks for your critique Ronni. Your are right she is a just likea dream, a ghost of the past now just pure energy. She came back to tell me a few more things that's why she is "revisited".

Dear konsu,
Thank youf or sharing your thoughts on Sally with me. I appreciate that you
took the time to look at and take in this piece. Yes this is jsut what she looks like, maybe the pink is more vivid in person though. Although you would never hang it on you wall, I feel kind of proud that it disturbed you so much. It made you feel something and that is what I think art should do.... Invite the viewer to feel something, whether it be happy, sad or even disturbing!.

It's a cool haunting image. I am a big fan of colors and combinations of them. I really enjoy the colors you chose for this. I can sense the energy of Sally. My what a horror she must have experienced. I like this. Welcome to WC. KYRed
