Whisper Me Sweet Somethings

This is a 8″x24″ mixed media painting on wood. the sides are 1.5″ deep and are painted red.

This painting is available HERE

When I was a little girl, I know  I have mentioned this before, I would draw for hours, making up stories about the character I was drawing. I would talk out loud to my self.  Perhaps reciting the imagined dialogue I was giving them, changing their costumes, hair  and make up.  This was my favorite thing to do.  It was so much fun, I never bored with it.

Sometimes you forget that ‘fun’ part when you grow up. Sometimes you just start going through the motions, not engaged in the moment. Why do we do that, when it is so much more fun to be engaged?  To fully immerse yourself in it.

(Ha, ha I could be talking about cooking dinner, couldn’t I?  We can just apply this to anything and everything).

This painting is a reminder that, my favorite thing to do is to paint characters. To make-believe these character and  then try my best to breathe life into them.

WHISPER ME SWEET SOMETHINGS

She had long tired of sweet nothings.

How many nothings had she heard in her life time?

She longed for somethings to be whispered to her

Slow,steady  and sure

somethings

told to her in truth

Lasting somethings

Not

wishing nothings

    Aaaahh…the Agony and the Ecstasy..you nailed it! Alluringly beautiful with subtle undertones of Gothicism in her rose red lips and smeared mascara set against her porcelain white skin. Such sensitivity and vulnerability…
