missing

and lonely telephone poles and endless prairie and a house not lived

in for a million years and I miss this place with an ache and I've
never been
here I'm sure
I'll melt into
one day when
I find it

You'll find it Hardwax! I KNOW you will ... it does sound wonderful but is both impossible and undesirable to share! Who is in the left hand, top corner looking through a dark window? Luckily they won't be able to call once you are there ...

I love how the telephone poles don't line up with the road as they should, instead we let the figure lead us to the house that hasn't been lived in for a million years. But will it be all she needs it to be once she melts into it? It sure is beckoning though in that little patch of indigo.
Nice one Hardwax. Nice.

I love especially the atmosphere. Like this painting a lot!

I like your muted palette for this. It has an almost religious symbolism - very powerful.

my favourite for this week for sure! The mood is excellent and the deviant telephone poles and the disproportionate figure reaching into the clouds. Wonderful! Excellent!

Bron Smith said...

Wow. This is one of my favorites. Such a strong mood that you created. Your brush strokes enhance your work so much.

This is so very captivating... the brushstrokes and the palette create the feeling of a dream. It's clear, but it's not precise...the road goes one way, the poles go another, the house seems to hover in the distance... the things that make perfect sense in dreams! I really love this!

Beautiful painting/poetry! Perfect!! The painting says what the text says and vice versa, and more. The figure seems like a tornado making a road. I think maybe I 've been to that place in a dream. Freedom, peace, chance, reality, dreams, heaven, earth, Q's about all and no Q's at all, just about covers it all. I'll shuddup again- and just look and admire. Awesome!!

Once again you managed to capture a real "sense" of feeling and atmosphere here Miri. Sorry I missed last week's as well, which is equally fantastic. This one reminds me of some of the roads in the American Southwest--AZ and NM in particular, especially when a storm is looming.

Ellen Byrne said...

wow! you sure have captured a mood here!

Helen said...

I just love the way you capture a feeling with your work, in so many different ways. Really beautiful, and I love your brushstrokes as well. Very nice.
