So much DETAIL Hardwax! It IS often called upon to wear a smiley face when just wanting to tear your face and anyone near you faces off! For the sake of the children. Who are usually the ones responsible for having to wear the camouflage in the first place!I feel better now :)WHO is the dark, yet vibrant shadow person holding your hand and protecting the milk from spilling? Is that YOU Hardwax? Ooops the milk spilt anyway Hhehhehhheeeeee.
Don't know why, but the song American Woman comes to mind looking at this. So much to look at here (especially like the cat getting his/her treat). There's a dark and sad commentary here about the state of the modern family amidst all the faces I'm seeing everywhere. Beautiful piece.
well miri i just hope this isnt how ur week has been going for u. straight up six supper boiling over on the stove, cat makin a mess in it, dad palying with the kids and mom trying to keep it all together with a big old happy face. but i believe i can see the steam comin out her ears. great rich details and textures and a situation i think most moms can sure relate to
Wow- what a view through the window. I wonder what's going on at the neighboring houses. Since I was a kid- always loved looking at artwork with a ton of details- so this piece is like heaven- it's like a big chapter of a book. In my book, I always tell myself that, "the real smiley face is just a few pages ahead." It will be. Creamy potato leek soup? mmmmmmmmmPeace.(P.S. have you considered printing your work onto canvas- and getting into shows?)
I really like your 'paintings' like this that seem to have that realistic painterly texture...a perfect slice of americana!!! Where are you at in the great land of OH...(and I would like to see an actual extreme close up painting of a face in your 'style' that has a smiley face painted on it as in this pic...like your button/zipper pic that still haunts me to this day)
you came through again... Great painting seeped with meaning... You rock Miri.
If I just smile, everything will appear to be okay. It didn't fool me as a kid and it wouldn't fool me now. I wonder why parents think kids don't know how it really is? They never give/gave us enough credit. Great illo Miri. You always reach into the deeper parts...and that's a good thing!
Very compelling and beautifully done in your textural style.Alittle scary too!
wow! how cool is this?! I LOVE the colors and textures!
I just noticed the glass of wine in her hand. That makes it even more perfect and true to my childhood. (Only her drink was vodka!) Your illos always get me :P
Wow Miri!! How scary and true. You gotta empathize with anyone who is raising children, huh? This says so much! Wonderful once again.

The smiling face mattered a lot despite of the messines around her.
a fifties housewife - I would recognize her anywhere...
