Hi Sharon:I really like them, one of the reasons especially is there is a story or many stories one can feel from this painting. There is body language in the painting not just a presence. I don't know these women, but feel I do. It feels like you captured them on a relatively good day. Their stillness has so much emotion.Going to paint angels, Emelie
Although they both do definitely look glum, they are very good Sharon. We all don't smile and feel joy all of the time, so they are lovely because they are real. I do think that if they were both smiling, the painting wouldn't be as good. My personal opinion...The background helps to build the mood of the painting, and it works. Sad, happy or funky....I so enjoy all of your work! Hope that you are enjoying the outdoors! I should get my fanny out there too!!!
I just came bac kto thank you so much for your inspiring comments. I highly admire you and your work, s oit means a lot to me! .. Now...interesting that you firmly did not enjoy the painting you created. hmmm... altho there are times when i don't like what I have done.
They are a sombre pair of girls. The girl on the left has a certain nonchalance about her...dress and pearls skewiff. The girl on the right rather apathetic, just accepting whatever comes her way. Obviously these girls (and your wonderful painting) really tell their story.Jacky xox
I think they look great...alike but really rather different. The shorter one looks younger and the other a tad bit older...perhaps sisters or even cousins. Love the expression on the younger ones face...
i love this page, sharon.
I really like these two girls. There is sweetness in their eyes and like the dark background. Put them aside and pull them out later and you will love them.
sometimes that happens...but i happen to like the page ...they look like buddies enjoying each other in the moment...
you're funny....you can do what you want to, it's your studio, right?? hope it was a nice day out...i have a hard time staying inside when i know the house shut-in season is just around the corner....bbbrrrr....
Oh, I know these girls’ parents, Jack & Jean Johnson! The girls are Jessie and Jane. (Jack liked the whole J thing!) They’ve been different since they were toddlers! Jessie is the oldest but by just barely a year. She is very outgoing, was a cheerleader in school, has loads of friends, and likes to party. And she is getting married next year. To a lawyer in her firm! Jane on the other hand is much quieter and shyer. She’s not been known many friends that I’ve seen. I don’t think she’s been on even one date. She works at the grocery store not too far from home. Yes, she still lives at home. Jessie just flits in every now and then.You’ve captured their likenesses perfectly, Sharon!
This painting is captivating for the mystery alone. These women have obviously had a difficult life, much darkness surrounds them even now. They are mesmerizing....like Mona was!! I rarely see this kind of deepness in paintings...you should put it in an art show. I can see droves of people conversing around these two!!! All wondering what went wrong, who they are and more. Isn't it amazing where these characters comes from?Hugs Giggles
Sharon, how fun and what a great idea!
I love this piece. The character in their faces makes me want to know their stories and them. :)
i quite enjoy this page .. maybe because I can relate to the colors or the somberness of it .... i like to look at it!
