Wow... it's really powerful! I've been looking your stuff, it's stunning how you work watercolors. I want to ask you something if you like. Have you any suggestion for me in my lastest sketch? months are passing and I still cannot figure out something to continue with it. Don't look the title, just the feeling it gives and the expression. I like focusing on naturality, wildness, the divine and its nobility. Thank you very much!

:blushes: Thank you so much! This piece gains meaning for me the longer I look at it - funny how things work out that way. It's a self-portrait, so I was really digging deep to try to express where I was in my life. :heart:

Interesting now that I know it is a self portrait. The energy you are molding/holding/shaping.. Is this an internal energy that grows from within?

It is - I think it represents the inner light within us, that shows us the way. The part of us that's incorruptible, as long as we have the courage to listen to it. I painted this at a time when I had nearly forgotten to listen (hence all the darkness) - I had forgotten or lost a sense of who I am, what my gifts are, where I'm going in this life. But the light was coming back, and I was almost surprised to see it again, not really knowing what I had on my hands or what to do with it. I've grown a lot and been through a lot since then (and it was only painted this Summer, but wow, what a few months it's been for me!). So I think this is a portrait of self-remembrance, a moment of trusting the goodness in my own heart.

I'm sorry if that came out way too pretentious...it's always nice to be able to talk about what's behind a painting, not just what went into bringing it into physical existence, i.e. technique, etc.

Sorry it has taken me a while to respond, work and the holidays have been having me travel quite a bit.

Your description is not pretentious at all, beautiful actually. I hope that your inner light continues to shine and increase in intensity and lead you to more moments of powerful creation.

I sometimes struggle as to put in words, thoughts behind my paintings. Some times I do, sometimes I don't. With abstracts, it is a bit more fun to hear others reactions and interpretations. But if the message is somewhat direct, and likely to be missed, then I will describe. Of course as an artist, I also enjoy reading about technique.

All the Best

Jim
