Home is, or should be, a place of comfort and security. This pic seems like a girl longing for earlier/better days with dad at home. Love the circular composition which really speaks to the desire to turn back the hands of time and go back to an earlier day and an earlier home. That flowering tree segueing into stars is a fabulous effect. I also love her thick golden hair that almost seems like dreadlocks. Really beautiful work here!
The home may not physically exist any longer, but all ways in one's heart. This was an originally made for a commission's work, but decided not to go as the theme becomes so sentimental to me. Thank you for reviewing this work. Yasue.
The model has such a "classical" look to the shape and modeling of her face and the setting - being "bathed" in grungy and textured effects is so modern - old meets new! I really like that effect and I think the hands that seem like they belong to a more mature person adds to that effect as well. The hair is marvelous with a Jackson Pollack frothiness to it. Love it! :)
I love how you get the light in your pictures. I find it difficult to do this. Your work here is bright and cheerful. Great colors and detail. The field of flowersand the sky are great. I also love her hair and face.
if only eyes could talk, what a story those eyes would tell. the sense of purity is everywhere, in the hair, in the skin, and in the air. but the eyes gives me the feeling that something sinister is going on in the soul. you can see the pain and suffering the individual is displaying through the powerful dark eyes. great work in expression. you are one of the most talented artist i've had the pleasure of meeting, and it's nice to know you, and your talent. thanks for sharing.
This is simply beautiful M, your composition is so full of beautiful images, like a mural almost ! Very gorgeous colours used also giving this a rich warm look, and the mystical dreamy memories up top are wonderous to behold. Beautiful job ! Wish i had a six for you today :)
This is so fantastic that my words can not describe. Your composition radiates and celebrates life that touches us all. It is more then that, it is the sounds of our chants that echo and dance cross eons of appreciations. Your composition Speaks to our soles from spirits reflected and you make us soar like Eagles. Makes us feel the capture and feel the rapture life eternal. Excellent, Excellent work, Love it.
I just love all the detail that you put into your work. It is just simply amazing at all the colors and emotion that you capture within your images. I love the different parts to this picture, from the lady holding the dream catcher, to the wolves and eagle... this picture is just breathtaking. Wonderful and fabulous work!
First off, I love the warm, orange and brown tones in this which reflect so well the warm/humorous look on the old woman's face. I definitely get the feeling of "native American" from this and the surrealistic idea of "dreams" being caught by the young woman above. I also love the textures and effects in keeping with the theme (dreams). Very nice surrealistic work!
Thank you. Hopefully one can interoperate how many 'dreams' have been achieved in her (old woman) life. I see your optimistic nature here. I would say how may 'dreams' went trough those grids of the dream catcher (means missed). I guess I am quite a pessimistic person. Yasue

Ah, glass half empty/half full? ;) I believe we "catch" what we are meant to catch. Heaven is so abundant with her blessings and we can only catch so much. Blessings to you my artistic friend. Have beautiful dreams and a wonderful night!

The 'Lost fishes' seems to be more remembered than the 'catches fishes'. The nostalgia in a face of the old woman may be result from it. Thank you, my friend and have a great weekend! Yasue
I get it and think the flow is great. I think it would have been great even if you didn't add the other images to the oil. If one knows exactly what a dream catcher is supposed to do, it is easy to understand the appearance of the elderly woman. Great movement and color in the painting. Excellent job.
