  17. Inner Traveller.. I like how that sounds.

    -- And what better subject to depict this sort of travel than a child lost in contemplation, wisping or "stealing" themselves away from the rigor, reason and heady progression of the busy busy day in order to travel inside and reflect upon the now somewhat stilled waters of past thought and idea. In this way, one might say, poetically, that an inside traveller is also perhaps a backward walker, looking back on the past and thinking about it, or retracing their steps, as it were.

    I think as we get older, we have a tendency to lose the wonder and awe of youthful contemplation.

    Thank you for this Melinda.

  18. MoS... Thank you again for your observation... as you said.. ""a backward walker""... it is so expressive...And yes, I think as we reach to a certain age, we tend to be a backward walker many times... maybe most of the times...

    Your remarks are always thoughtful... Thank you for visiting my blog, and leaving your observation written down here...

  19. You are very good painter. I like to see that there are still good artists in this moment in history when art is tainted bysnobbery and stupidity.

    I am a Spanish painter (Barcelona), but do not speak English.

    Congratulations and a warm greeting!

  20. Thank you Ceballos...greetings from Transylvania...

  21. Ce qui est troublant c'est que ta peinture nous emmène dans ton monde tout en nous faisant partager l'univers triste du modèle. C'est cette capacité de passer les frontières de l'humain qui est troublant et magnifique à la fois. On oublie que c'est de la peinture pour entrer de plain pied dans la vie. C'est très fort.

    à bientôt,


  22. Wonderful work!A real artist!
    Have a nice weekend.
    Regards from Thessaloniki.
