Crackers or She Lived or Us

She Lived

She Lived.
That was easy, I so enjoyed your comments and thoughts about naming your paintings.  And I was so tempted to call this one "Crackers"  after Kristin Dudish's comment that made me laugh. But I thought instead to just call it "She Lived".

OK, I have to confess to you that I am totally knocked over with Peter Metchev, a Bulgarian artist that I have just discovered. I can't stop looking at his creations.  Click here for the google images.  I just love the way he "couples" faces and I just had to try it. I haven't felt this way since discovering Gustav Klimt.

I just showed She Lived to dear husband and told him it was a self portrait of us.  Of course, all I get is a puzzled raised eyebrow...much like the one I have painted on him. And I look just like that too.  So, maybe I should just call it "Us".


  1. Oh Sharon, I love this work! It's romantic and I LOVE green. Their dreamy sleepy gaze...and his outfit just makes me think Shakespeare.

  13. Sharon,
    that little dramatic pause you recently had was your preparation for metamorphasis!
