Holly Zemak said...

Enjoyed your works in progress. It's always interesting to see someones process.Best of luck with your show.

Vesna Designs said...

Hi Holly...thank you for fallowing and leaving me your comment...yes the two wips were a bit of a test for me, which way is it better to work ( or at least for me) and I found that without the dead layer, the colours are much richer and just glow, while with dead layer they are subdued in glow ...by the way, your work is magnificent, and I look forwards to fallowing your progress too :) HUG!!!

Theresa Bayer said...

Congratulations on the show Vesna! This is such a mysterious painting. Is there a story behind it? I like all the different figures going back into the distance.

Vesna Designs said...

Hi Theresa - thank you for stopping by, and yes, there is a bit of a story -
'...we are back...the Goddesses have re-awakened to walk the Earth once more...after years of dorment and silent existance, silent between earth and water...they now shed away years of suppression and subservant sleep !'
The different forms in the background I was hoping to show different stages of re-awakening in each woman, that is, the Goddess spirit and strenght in each woman.

Dale said...

Hey Vesna

Just a quick note to thank you for allowing us to come along last night. Both Sue and I loved meeting you, (and your mum and daughter) having a chance to talk to you and admire your beautiful work. You definitely deserve to be recognized and we thought your work was one of the best there!!
Well done!!

Vesna Designs said...

Thank you Dale...your and Sue's support meant a world to me...thank you so much for coming last night !!!

José said...

Hi,

The work in terms of perspective is quite good.
Be it in terms of detail, be it in terms of atmosphere.
You possess a good dose of creativity, no doubt.

Best regards,

José
