The Beginning of Memory

  6. Oh, milyen gyönyörű munka! *.*
    Lehet, hogy én vagyok túl negatív, de megint szomorúságot, meg hidegséget látok a képen. Talán a színhasználat miatt is ami egyébként most nagyon megfogott), de legfőképp a gyermek tekintete, arckifejezése miatt. Elhagyatottnak, árvának tűnik, s közben gyermeki tisztaság, ártatlanság is sugárzik belőle.

    További szép napot Melinda!

  10. Brigitta, örülök, hogy tetszik, talán minden munkámban van valami negativ hahaha, de ez nem föltétlenül azért mert én szomorú lennék, hanem mert úgy érzem a negativ érzesek nagyon fontosak a pozitivaknak az átéléséhez...

  19. Thanks for sharing part of you. We are all in this together, although, some of us are more cognizant of the multi-faceted makeup of not only our person but of our 'being'. As Miquel de Uno Muno would probably say, ...live with passion, Love and Live! Gracias!

  22. Sinun työ on todella vaikuttava. Pysähdyn maalaustesi edessä ne osuvat sieluun asti. vahva tunne ja rohkea pelettiveitsi. kiitos

  23. Miss,
    Please pardon my intrusion. I probably shouldn't comment, but must tell you how moved I am by your work. In all honesty some of these paintings "Hurt" to look at as they remind me of who I really am deep inside. I write to help me purge uncomfortable emotions. Your work reveals this about you too. Should you ever wish a poem to be written about one of your pieces. . . please do not hesitate to ask me. My apology for the uninvited comment.

    Kind Thoughts,

    Thank you very much!

    ĐΣΛИ:
    I am also touched when someone feels "that hurt" because it means that that person really understood the message of my works. And yes, all of them are about my inner being... and sure about yours, and maybe others,too... Whenever you feel like writing a poem about any of my works, it will be welcome...

  26. Ces retours vers ta propre enfance ont l'air de t'inspirer. Quelle palette de couleur, quelle intensité, quelle maîtrise.
    Mille fois bravo.

  27. Hi Brian, and thanks for visiting me..

    ...
    Salut Roger! Yes, as you said, my childhood is inspiring me. I believe childhood somewhat owns us ... as if it would be the essence of us, the unmasked one. Grownups seem to lose the genuineness they had once...

  48. I could not decline to come, and to say these words for you, even if they're gonna be words, zigzag words from a zigzag person: just terrific your sensibility to capture inward-outward imagens and, through so superb lens, to convert all them into treasures we animate by seeing them with eyes that are really so solicitous to see them.

    Beautiful, catchy, and intense all these works of art depicted by you, coming from you. But also provocative and intriguing - after all, that's what the works of art make us feel the most, right?

    Sincere congrats on your work,
    Best regards,

    Carol P:
    These appeciative words make me feel good, ergo they might have a wrong effect on me...

    Thank you very much, though I am very dissatisfied with what I realize. I have some works I am doing lately and they just don't move me...
