Spotted


I wasn't too inspired by this topic, so it took me a long time to get this done. Here it is Thursday night and I'm submitting something I'm not too crazy about.
This is a picture based on a photo I took in a cemetery in Cozumel, Mexico.

Acrylic paint and ink on a 10x8 inch board.

It's funny how some of these topics don't really grab you. Nonetheless, you came through with another fine painting. I like the details of the graves (was there really a rhinoceros on one?), and it's fun to see that your little friend came along for the trip. It looks like she even laid an egg! This is fun and imaginative and colorful...I like it! And...I hope this Friday we'll get a topic that allows more interpretation!

What's odd was I'd imagined you'd be someone who could paint any of your paintings and it might well work for spotted... maybe that was the problem too general for you! Indeed my first thought when I saw the topic was of one of your pictures with a spotted feline (like in tea).

I like the way that you made a spotted egg that seems to promise there will be something more to come another day!

It's impressive that even though you're not inspired by some of the topics you come up with paintings that inspire the rest of us. I admire your tenacity and determination, woman.

I really like this, the whole thing but I really like how you did the sky, clouds. So simple a technique yet gives the impression of rolling white clouds in the background.

All this time I've been calling your special creature an aardvark, but upon closer exam, one can see that it clearly is not that animal. Whatever it (she?) is, she's chosen an interesting place in which to lay her egg. Some symbolism here on death and new life... and is the presence of the rhino on one of the markers a comment on endangered species? Too much thinking makes my head hurt this early in the morning... Much better to let the eyes soak in the great colors and energize the mind for the coming day. Beautiful.

I would never know you weren't inspired - this is a great painting. I like how you interpret real photos or other paintings into your own unique and distinct way of looking at things. I do understand the lack of inspiration as I felt that way this morning when I saw "Robot" as the topic. Ugh......

I like your drawings. I think they are very nicely drawn.

How long do you take to draw them on average?

I understand not being able to feel a topic...but, you came through with, yet, another fantastic illo! As always....love the colors! I always enjoy your pieces!

Your inspired and uninspired works are always a treat... I love rino's, they are so special. Do you ever make prints?

I know the feeling. Love the illo that came out of your struggle.
