Reworking a painting!!

I will be never able to fathom how can someone paint like this, that too at your age. I can only wonder(I know I have said it), and I can be intrigued endlessly.
Of all the forms of expression - music, dance, writing, painting - I think the one you practice is the most closed. In the sense that the spectator can only see and think, but rarely will he be able to see behing the painting. The other forms, you can listen to the words and derive the meaning, see the dance and guess the spirit of the the dancer.
Till I saw your blog, I had only read about artists, and thought how they must be, and what makes their thougts.
Thank you very much for taking me a little closer to them.

I am touched Spectator.
I can maybe help you a little in understanding , and it is possible i might even confuse you more .As an artist and as a person , I have always believed in the knowledge , intelligence and mystic power that the unconscious mind or the inner being etc possesses . So when I paint ,I paint what i feel , i add the strokes .. i know what i want to say but i let the inner being say it .I can tell you what this painting means to me , but I want you to think and know what it means to you .
I am truly touched by your expression .

I can only try to understand what you said.
From now on, you have an honest critic and I hope a friend too, being only an year older than you.
I will try to post my views on each of your works. I havent the slightest knowledge about art but will still be honest in putting forth my views.
I will start with this one.
It seems to me there are two women who are troubled by the same miseries in life - both in the grips of a faceless monster. There is another woman who can see them and the troubles they are going through, and she is very shocked for some reason.

ps - Im sorry if I get it all wrong.

Before I tell you my exact point of view .. just look at the supposed *monster*.. specially his mouth and his neck .. it might help !!! :)
..
And I am honored that you have offered me your friendship , I hope I find in you a great friend and a greater critic

So now I think that the supposed 'monster' is actually a boy who is somehow caught between the two women and cant speak anything, doesnt have anyone to share his thoughts with.

The Seeker of seeking things said...

hmm . Yes u r closer and closer to the real thing , the guy is caught up between them ..what i want to know is , that are u disappointed by this interpretation ?

Spectator said...

Not at all , I am happy at least I got a little closer to it.

The Seeker of seeking things said...

Good ..!!!.
You did understand it!
Cheers to you ..
I had a hard time explaining it to some of my friends..

The Seeker of seeking things said...

Okay people tell me , would you like to see the photos of a canvas painting of mine in steps ? as in its progress from a white thingy to a painting ???

Spectator said...

Maybe you could do that with one out of your twenty paintings.
Speaking for myself, I believe seeing it from the scratch may steal the awe and wonder with which I view your final outcome.
