I think this is what people at the Texas Motor Speedway are going to look like this weekend. I am NOT looking forward to traffic jams.... Did you really do this FAST?

isay said...

just as fast as it happened her heart beats so fast and tears fall down at the same time.

The Tart said...

SO BEAUTIFUL! And fast fast fast!

Those colors are so alive, sad ; (

Smooch,
The Tart

Jeanette Jobson said...

Fabulous work! The colours give impact.

Lou said...

I'm wondering... Is she sad because her cowboy is leaving? Did she loose someone close to her by the cowboy in the background? The background is very representative of a western. It has a lot of emotion streaming from it. I love your work. Great job!

Rowantree said...

Powerful colors in your amazing illo !

atomicvelvetsigh said...

very thought provoking! and a wonderful illo!

i see this as a scared woman being chased by men (probably police or detectives) then she realized she was in a dead end. hmm..

how close am i?

The Unknown said...

Great image. Kind of scary. Seems menacing. I love it.
love

Twisselman said...

I've said this before... your illustrations tell such interesting stories. Just read through the comments preceding mine, and you'll find people filling in their own versions of where this woman is, and what she's just gone through. Powerful art does that.

the heartful blogger said...

Wow, her eyes give me chills. What an impact.

Joy Eliz said...

doodlestreet said...

She reminds me a bit of Joni M! Very cool stuff here...I like! I like! Thanks for your kind words on my site.

ThomP said...

That is really really amazing!!!

Muffingal said...

Wow! Intense! I really like the colors!

Gabe said...

The red wranglers are here, and with their pixie fluff orbs. Too much to handle. But is it all just a weaving of yesterdays hair? Ahhh, the key is in listening.

Surely this is what you are saying with this piece.

carla said...

This is moving and surreal. I always get the feeling that your paintings have some story we'll never be able to figure out - mystery narratives! Has she witnessed the killing of her lover? An enemy? Does she cry from sorrow, shock, fear? Hard to say...but I love the face in the foreground and the shooting figures in the background. Excellent composition and compelling image!

Alina Chau said...

Love your new painting postings. This is very expressive!!

Tony LaRocca said...

Ah, the poor wax sculpture, finaly tracked down by the evil men with heat lamps! Awesome pic.

Princess Pepper Cloud said...

Reminds me a little of Debra Harry. She looks like she may be terrified but angry at the same time... there is such softness to the lines but the stare in her eyes and the way her face is set is very sharp. Many contrasts. Very fine work indeed!

irvine said...

ohh how sad.. wish i can wipe her tears away... sniiff...

but indeed.. a wonderful illustration!

modroom said...

Great handling and composition. The speed of tears like that is serious stuff. Like the light and dark with earring and eyes, expression.. I could just continue a list.

Roz Foster said...

Whoa. This is intense. She looks almost as if she's melting in a way, as if her tears are dissolving her. Wicked stuff!

Amy Zaleski said...

Whew..agree with Roz completely. Nice waxy effect here! Very, very cool!
