jack in a box

MY IMAGE(S):





GENERAL INFORMATION:
Title: jack in a box
Year Created:
Medium: Oil
Surface: Canvas
Dimension: 16 x 20
Allow digital alterations?: Yes!

MY COMMENTS:
not really a 'jack' nor really a 'box' but the title said 'do me' anyway ... more a sally escaping a box but that's somehow less intriguing ... ; )

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
...

Re: jack in a box

It seems like someone is within struggling to get out...are you subconsciously (or consciously) addressing the trans gender issue that some face? In this case it would be the male Jack trying to emerge from the female box...

Nicely painted as usual La!

Re: jack in a box

Yes, the eyes have it for me! They actually seem to glow like the folks in the Dune Movie. I love it! I keep checking the close ups to see if it is my monitor playing tricks. But the glow is nice.

Re: jack in a box

The whole thing seems to be glowing. Like the use of reflection.

Re: jack in a box

i like the consistent warm earth tones and mood of this.. it's subtle throughout.... i would maybe fine tune the features more but can't say how...

Re: jack in a box

Thanks much guys n gals

i'll call her recovered from the depths of cold and despair [the horrid blue wintery thing she was before] and move on to the next fixer-upper ... guess the glowing eyes are a hit! and nobody called the diff colors of them too odd to keep - bonus!



la

ooo, nightlite - i'll try that and see if she glows by the light of the moon
