Home and Fairies

March 2005
Oil painting on canvas - 120x80 cm ( 47.3x31.5 inch )
So you caught me in this reverie,
There at home where I could stay for hours.
You thought I was trapped from within.

I won't blame you, if you couldn't notice
That my aloneness was filled
Richer than all the madnesses and frenzies
You all live in.

The austere discomfort I am coiled in
Beneath that hole on the ceiling
Is a whole universe of fancies
And the sweetest haven for heart and soul.

Anyone viewing your art can see you put your heart and soul into everything you do. I am not an artist, truth be known I don't have an artistic bone in my body, BUT I do have eyes and they see the beauty of your work

This is very beautiful. The subject of the painting is one which everyone can relate to :)

Do you glaze? If you do glaze, what colour do you use for the underpaintings?

Can an Alla Prima be blended as to bring the effect that is seen in glazed paintings?

I would be grateful for you help

Wow, I've ever thought of those great artists being a part of the past. Every time in school I had to face the art of, e.g. van Gogh or Dalí, whoever being still recognized today, I'd ever thought that no one else would be able to create such canvas with breathtaking perfection and beauty, I love it (:

ton sejour est la-haut, tu devrais avoir honte

Très belles lumières. À la première idée je file sur certaines toiles mais il y a une douceur étonnante qui coule. Il y a une jolie necesité à peindre. Très belles couleurs. Je suis agréablement surpris de passer du temps ici. J'espère bientôt pouvoir les voir en chair et en os. Amicalement, bel été.

Le tableau est beau, le poème est beau et il illustre tout a fait le tableau... AH que dire si ce n'est que magnifique ? Franchement... Je suis totalement ébahie ! Et même époustouflé.

It should be called Home and Fairies and also some Little People With Wings.

That dude's a flamer.

Your work is breathtaking. Just beautiful. I felt like I couldn't look at your work without saying something. But yet, words can't capture what your work makes me feel. Wonderful, beautiful. Thank you for creating.

There is a secret refuge that everyone goes back to....their own private abyss...well...atleast i do....and i think u have captured both the essence and the ecstasy of that abyss in ur work and ur words too...i think what i love about this one is the comfort and sense of belonging inside as small and confined a place as that....and yet the depiction of vastness of the realm of imagination that the space signifies..... the true light that brightens the soul....its beautiful......

Its so weird as amazing as my own imagination goes nuts trying to work out this painting. I started questioning why he's in such small room and if the fairies arrived before he started drawing them or is he drawing them as he sees them (that was quite easy to work out from his facial expression). Its just a brilliant work of art!! Its so rare I get this feeling with art.

It looks very awesome!!!! this kind of images I have them all the time in my mind but can't actually make them, yours is very detailed and I didn-t know that with oil you could have such fine details... just curioisity, since which age you started to paint, and how many years took after you made this?? greetings hope you answer
