I love the colors in this and how you focused more light on the front figure.

Re: Don't be shy

I like the stance of the person in the background. It looks like good and evil to me.

Re: Don't be shy

I like the placements of the characters as well. I agree with Katie about the good and evil. Forward figure is almost clown-like with the harlequin pattern, baggy pants and big shoes, yet looking over his shoulder. The back figure more subdued, features hidden in shadow. Yet posture is the same........hands in pockets. Two sides of the same person? Who is really the shy one?
Beautiful colors, soft rendering. Very nice.

Re: Don't be shy

Intrigue. Enjoy this too. I initially saw the figure in the foreground as placed on a pedestal by the figure behind. But I'm sure I was partially influenced by the title, because it appears clear to me now that this is dad with his little one out trick or treating.

Re: Don't be shy

Trick or treating sounds just right. Even if it was not meant.
Thank you everybody for looking and saying.

Re: Don't be shy

I can't turn around
the fear is too great
what if he doesn't care
or hates the way I be?

We could maybe be friends
but not if we never speak
I think he was so cute
Turn around? No, my knees are too weak...

If I slow down will he pass me by?
Will he look at me then?
Would he say hi or hello?
O what if he just rushed by and went below...

Shy. Too shy to try
Doomed to live lonely
without a one and only
Too shy. Too shy.

Walking behind him
I wonder if he even noticed me?
He just keeps moving
never slowing down.

Although I know him not
He seems not aloof nor a snot
Just mebbe shy like me
And what a pity that will be.

One of us must make a move
Soon, very very soon
Or else the magic will be gone
And he will be just another fantasy.

Us shy folks have more fantasies than most
Friends never realized
Lovers never met
We can only dream how lover's embrace

Well, I guess this is how it shall always be
A step behind or ahead
Never side by side, hand in hand
Shy, and sad, but always dreaming,
Always dreaming…
