Re: Red dress

Oh this is so charming! Lovely composition and mixture os patterns and textures. I like the stylized portait. Very nice.

"A bird in the hand" or " Worth two in the bush."- an American expression that might not translate. (A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.)

Re: Red dress

I love your style so much! It reminds me of Emily Dickinson's poem, "Hope is the thing with feathers"

Re: Red dress

Li, Cyndi- many thanks for your kind words. This is exciting times for me as I'm finding this new cohesive style emerging in my work. Am absolutely loving the creative process too, which is so important. Thank you both for the encouragement.

I love your titles too, and if OK with you I'm going to use them on the next ones with birds (definitely see a series with them!). I cross posted in Abstract/contemp forum and Davefriend came up with 'A little bird told me', which I'm going to use for this one.

Thanks again

Ryan

Re: Red dress

Wow, I really like this, love the colours and textures. I did a collage piece with a similar concept, a lady in a red dress holding a bird, I called it 'lady in red'

Re: Red dress

Great mixed media piece. I love the style you used here on the portrait; she has eyes a person could get lost in. It invites the viewer into the story whatever it might be...it's anyone's guess.
