  10. Tolstoy identified art as a use of indirect means to communicate from one person to another.
    I know now!

  13. The coloration, or lack thereof, on the part of the subject is striking, haunting; ghostly even, if I could risk stretching the metaphor. The warm background colors, compositionally, really help pop the subject, forcing the viewer to take in the full meaning and veracity of this bent, hobbled subject that sits before us in such a vulnerable state.

    Life is all too fragile, and if the mental/spiritual realm of things does not wear us down into our basest elements of existence, then our sheer physicality will. Old age -- finitude -- bends us to its will: a merciless will that leaves no room or space for compromise. It is no wonder we become sick, losing our ability to feel, to blush, to have "color."

    ... I am slowly starting to see nihilism creep up on me as far as my outlook on life and existence goes...

    Thank you for this Melinda -- again you've enraptured me with your talents. I am indebted to you in a manner that is hard to express with words. I realize that you are not thrilled about the label of being an "artist," but if your finished products are not "art" proper, then I do not know what art is.

  15. Very original work Melinda.... I especially like your nude interpretations especially because your subjects are REAL ... no fake plastic women, but real flesh and blood women...my wife is my model for all my photo art collages (an example is "the lady in the window" ) at http://photoartscreations.blogspot.com/ ....
    I also like your use of the palette knife as a way of giving your art a more rich full feelilng ... great work .... cheers
