Alone

Here is my entry for this week's Paint Party Friday. I'm posting it early because I don't know how long I'll be able to access my blog. I've been locked out of Blogger for the past three days. I couldn't access my own blog or comment on anyone else's. That made me very unhappy, cranky and many other things I won't go into... So while I can still sneak in here I am posting now. ;)

This piece has so many layers on it I lost count. Fun! Tissue paper, paint, ink, rub-ons, stamps, everything within reach went onto the canvas. It also helped me to use up some of those supplies I've been neglecting. Make sure to check out all of the other entries at PPF tomorrow. The party seems to get bigger each week!

she looks lost and mournful...beauty in pain....if that makes sense?

I love the layering (as always). I once had a professor who always told us to paint over and over, paint a mess on the vancas and work it until it works because you can see little bits of every layer even if they're covered and it makes the painting more interesting and aesthetically pleasing. And I think he was right.

Happy (almost) Paint party friday! And good luck with blogger. I posted early too. : )

i can empathize with you somewhat on the blogging front. for me, google chrome and blogger have been like two stray cats trying to kill each other over a fish bone.

and, of course, i like the picture. so many different reasons there are for the need to be alone sometimes.

Bill said...

Sometimes alone is good! The layering is wonderful. I love all of the textures. I bet it's stunning in person.

Same here Pam. I have been able to comment on blogs either. Just a few moments ago I was able to comment on a few blogs where I haven't been able to comment. I love your PPF contribution. She does appear to be lonely. I like all the texture and wonder what she is thinking as she plays with a strand of hair. Very nice. Happy PPF!

Mysterious and thought provoking. i love it!

EVA said...

Very very pretty Pam. I really like some of the little touches like the heart in the cage. Nice!!

Changing browsers from Internet Explorer to Google Chrome has solved the issues for me. I use both at home and IE at work and it is only with IE that I have issues. With Chrome everything works fine. Hope that helps!

Shayla said...

She looks so lonely but yet, beautiful and powerful at the same time. Love all the layers as well. I heard a lot of people have been having trouble with Blogger....which is kind of dumb since they were fixing things for like two days. Geesh.

mice_aliling said...

I love the idea that the piece has a lot of layers, just like your lady. I feel she has a lot of layers also:)

craftattack said...

Great piece! Love how you have used so many different things. Hope Blogger will soon be kinder to you! Hugs, Valerie

carlarey said...

Oh, I really like her a lot, and I can sympathize with her need to be alone.

Amazing effect of this technique. But the best technique is useless without a talented drawer and painter like you.
Oh, in my masculine eyes she doesn't leave the impression of what the title suggests ... surely just projections! : )

Sophia said...

There's a sadness about this, but yet beauty found within. Very nice work. :)

La Abela said...

Is interesting as you have not painted the feet, seems to float. Saludos

Theresa said...

Hi Pam, I've been locked out of my blogger dashboard, unable to work on blogs & only can post / comment just now. Frustrating!! I love how you wrote the words on the painting, the heart in the birdcage, and her imagery. The gray vs soft. Lovely!
Happy PPF! Theresa

Theresa said...

Fabulous texture and I love the pose!

Netty said...

We often see girls playing with their long hair and you have captured this perfectly. Loving all the layers Pam. Happy PPF, Annette x

Christine said...

wonderful piece Pam. Frustrating, 3 day lockout! I had some trouble commenting a few days ago, but not for long (on Firefox)

Tammie said...

hi Pam,
I love her languid stance.

Her Speak said...

All that layering paid off--I love the depth you were able to achieve. :) Happy PPF!

Beauty with subtlety and elegance. A calming piece. Blogger is challenging us all right now... Find peace and have a wonderful holiday weekend Pam!

I clicked it bigger so I could see the back ground. Looks fabulous. So much for the eye to rest on before moving on. and as I write this I can see my tree just below the comment box and it doesn't look too bad!!

Sunshineshelle said...

Love this Pam, & the built up layers & texture are wonderful, hope the blogger problems settle down, quite a few of us have had communication problems, here's to smoother access next week!

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

WOW, I love all the layers to this! I want to do more stuff like this.....it's incredible!
Happy PPF,
Stephanie

Lovely! All those layers! What fun!

Sorry you've had computer issues. Not so fun.

Love all the layers Pam. Lots to see when enlarged, lovely details.
We all have to have time alone sometimes, just to recharge! Hugs xx

Terrie said...

very soft and ethereal - love the finished palette

NatashaMay said...

Love the layers, Pam! :) And it's awesome that you can still see what's underneath.

Denni said...

She's a beauty! I too have been having ton's of blogger problems! Very annoying when I have a post of another artist who is waiting to see themselves featured on my blog. ;(
I sent the prints out to you yesterday.
Have a nice weekend.

Kristin said...

This is stunning! I love the texture and her expression and the tiny birdcage in the bottom corner - wonderful work!
Thank you for becoming a follower and for joining in on the party - I'm looking forward to getting to know you and your beautiful art better, Kristin xo

Kelly said...

she's beautiful, graceful, willowy...all things fantastic. sorry about your blogger trouble. i hope it gets resolved quickly!

Pearson Report said...

You've captured me...I've been in your painting this past two weeks.

It makes me sad to see her so alone but sometimes alone is "al" about the "one".

Being alone rebalances my soul.

Your work is amazing - I never cease to be moved by it.

Hugs, Jenny

- hey bro! - said...

Awesome work on her expression and posture, the background looks stunning too!

Yeah, Blogger's been acting weird lately, hope it will be solved soon... =__=

Heather said...

She is so beautiful!!!

Carola Bartz said...

This is fantastic. I love that you filled the canvas with so many different media, there is always something new I discover. Splendid!
