Title: Mom lighting candles
Year Created: 2002
Allow digital alterations?: No, please :)
I put this in Jerry's thread about tea and then I did it here again ...
MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I am not sure I have a question at this point ... but maybe ... nah

there is distinction here
and an ocean of mid tones in this
that had drained out
of my tea, but
one can see common shapings
and color motions
and funny shaped teapots, dishes,
and blue, darks, skin and yellow

enjoying this very much
can see J's style filtering into your own
in this intimate and lovely space
No questions. No answers.
Observation: even expressionistically, mom's mouth?

mouth coming soon to a theatre near you ...
Was thinking metaphorically/psychologically.
Hey, forget the artist's intention. I'll "perceive"/create my own story...:D

or just dinner candles

THIS is figurative.
This is the essence of Simonism and it is the new style done brilliantly.
I see expression in her smile.
I don't think it would be hurt by more work but I don't think it would suffer at all from stopping right here.
It is very mature in content and I like how you have stayed true to the essence of your style and added subject without painting it LIKE anybody else. Your rules of aesthetics are strong and the painting is as glittering as your buildings.
Breakthrough, if you ask me!
