this is my current work in progress... 30x40 oil on canvas.  this is the first in a series of dolls i planned a year ago but finally got a start on.  second detail shot is for color because i use a crappy digital camera.  do not adjust your sets - the face is the main part still in progress at right now.

DOD,

I understand what you\'re saying, but then what would be the point of a forum. Any artist/musician ought to have those viewpoints and understandings prior to sharing their work. But as a musician myself, I totally value what others have to say and I\'ll think what I think about it regardless.

Peace.

Quote   To offer commentary on another persons work, be it painting, music, writing, is not smart,even by invitation. The modest response..."nice painting\' is safe but superficial. Criticism is a wholly subjective viewpoint and cant be taken seriously. However the person who took the giant step and did the painting in the first place must be taken seriously and deserves high praise. That is called commitment and is very worthy.   Looking at your painting on the screen is like listening to music over the phone. Lastly there is intent on the part of the artist. I doubt that your painting is just a picture of a doll. There surely is meaning and content beyond that. The viewer reads in the meaning  and is usually wrong.  I recall several years ago trying to decipher the deeper meaning in the lyrics of one of my sons  music.His response was....geez, dad, its  just a song!     DOD

Praise the Jean Claude Cliche cadre!  Praise them with great Praise!

huh?
the map is not the territory

ok - with caveats about crappy digital camera, poor photolighting/flash and wet paint... i think Sonya - Doll #1 is finished.
