Hi all

As it says be gentle!

I mostly paint imaginative oil paintings, been painting for 2 years and self taught. Trying to find the right site to showcase my work as they mostly paint landscapes and mine are quite different. so any suggestions are welcome.

Let me know what you think of my art - All comments are good comments even if you hate my work, all opinions counts :? :

You have some very lovely work. You have talent and it comes out in your work. Very interesting content. Quite imaginative. I love the colour in your art, you seem to use it so comfortably. I am looking forward to seeing more.

Great to have you here. Enjoy the site, it is wonderful for getting critiques or just to show....

Linda

Have you looked at my site lately as I have put your site on my links page.

Hope you don't mind

and I have found a model so I soon will be able to finish off the Naked Lady and Inferno....Hooray!!!! Its been bugging me for ages as I have loads of ideas for other paintings but as I have 6 Unfinished I am running out of space.

I also got contacted personally by Inverness Museum/Gallery and they are having their yearly review and they have downloaded my pics to include in the meeting...so fingures crossed xxxx and toes xxx lol

The naked lady series is a great concept. Thinking outside the box in this way gives a huge kick to the creative juices.

One aspect of the series, as it stands, is that there are lots of parts still left to the imagination.

If you don't mind me saying, I hope you don't, then I would suggest being careful about when to finish. Leaving gaps in the depiction would, for me at least, be just as important as the components that are present.

Thanks for your comments Ravid, be reassured but the Naked lady is going to stay at 4 pieces, I want people to use their imagination in filling in the blanks, I will be posting a pick of what they would look like hung on the wall - still waiting for the model to recover from new year before I can finish them off though.

I also have finished this in Conte its big (4ft tall) was intending on an undersea scene with a mermaid but got this result so left the mermaid out - what do you think? Called Imagine

All comments are appreciated!!

Hi Deanne!
I guessing you're leaving out the mermaid, b/c, by this photo, I see an almost ghostly face in the middle, w/ the kelp being drawn to it...
I see 2 eyes, a bit of a nose, and the mouth..
Or is my imagination going wild again? :lol:

No its not your imagination - thats what a couple of people who have seen it say, this was not intentional but works....lol

Freaky is probably the right term to stick on this drawing ...lol

Let me know what you see as differant people see differant things in it and I was wondering if its the imagination or is it just the way its turned out ??/

Well, for me it's Alien-like, the eyes are slightly slanted, and the mouth is an elongated oval..I almost see a hand, in the paintings left side, reaching up, or out..The head is large-ish..the body, not clear..
I'd be interested to hear what other's saw, you should blog about it!

The people who have seen this have said the same, as well as a merman, with skulls in the seaweed a gapping mouth in the sea and well the list goes on.... please comment as I am fasinated by what people see in this drawing..

I like this piece, very large too.

The faint face is cool, but I really think it needs something to fill in the voided space.

The seeweed seems to be floating towards the middle like something just went past. Perhaps some bubbles or something if you don't want a large subject like your mermaid. Maybe a fish got scared of the alien and left behind stuff floating in his wake. Perhaps some sun rays shining through the surface of the water (it looks like rays are almost there).

Just my oppinion and suggestions, hope you don't get offended.
