Sadness and Comfort by jfkpaint Sadness and Comfort by jfkpaint
Acrylic on Canvas

When you are brain dead but still want to create, try a repetitive time consuming technique. Days of dotting a canvas. Georges Seurat is my new artistic hero. I have to study his work once again.

This Painting is a new addition to my Embrace series. Here I tried to reflect sadness in the man being comforted by the woman.

Painting does not really work from a distance.. thus my need to revisit Seurat. But up close it is pretty cool. Look at large version!

Thank you, the whole idea of the piece was to convey the emotion, not two bodies.

You must have incredible patience. Seurat is definitely a great artistic hero to have. I'm blown away by the texture of the piece.

I am very intrigued by pointillism at the moment. I've started a very small landscape that I am once again dotting as an exercise. Have you ever seen any of Seurat's big canvas's? (I think one of the famous ones is in Philadelphia). When I couple the shear size with a gazillion dot technique, I wonder if he achieved "Satori" somewhere in the middle of the work. I'll let you know if I become enlightened!

oh yeah. I've seen Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte up close. It blows my mind. I doubt that I have the patience. If I did one, it would be a project that I would keep leaving and coming back to. I do love Van Gogh, also from the post-impressionist era of course. I've studied his style a great deal.

I really really like your choice of colour. The sad blue and the tender red.
also, the texture is just perfect.. This is art, no words -just emotion :)

Thank you Barbara, your words made me feel wonderful. What will your comic be about? I'll have to watch you to check it when you post.

well, you certainly made me smile with that comment :)
my comic, well, it's set in a snow-covered realm and my two main characters will get to know each other during their travel. the past, guilt and mystical powers will have a role to play as well.
but, it will probably be ages before I get it done and even longer till it gets colour. and THEN it gets on dA..
so it's probably not worth hanging around for..
