Wow, great job, my eyes go straight to the drips on her mouth, not sure if it's cause she's hungry or something else a little more creepy...
Amazing work on the berries too!

i think art is always a very intimate personal experience so im careful not to make its meaning set in stone. It's really interesting how people can see and feel different things when looking at the same piece...but when I created this, it was born from a deep sadness over the injustice in the world. How children are forced to grow up too fast. How a lot of pain and tears are ignored or justified.

I see.  Do you find that you begin a project before understanding it's meaning to you or do you see it come as you're working on it?

I agree.  There are many injustices that are swept under the rug.  Far too many.  It's easier that way.

That's such a good question. It honestly depends, sometimes I think I have everything completely planned out in my head, but then it kind of takes a different turn while doing it. I used to be stubborn, I absolutely wanted what I originally planned in detail but I learned it's better to let the painting talk, it knows better than I do lol. 

Yes it's heartbreaking and we can never ever accept it.

I've never heard the process explained like that.  I remember a movie, I think it was Ninja Gaiden.  Pretty brutal movie, but I liked it.  In their training, one of the young women was clipping the wiring off a bonsai.  She was asked why she was doing it and she said, "How do we know how the tree is supposed to grow better than the tree?"  If you don't know, wiring a bonsai is how one would get the tree to grow in the direction you want it to grow.  Your method perfectly exemplifies that.  You let the painting decide where to go.  I like it.  :)

Truth.

oh that's quite lovely, im really glad it reminded you of that. I think it's so important to not be too stubborn...both when it comes to art and our every day life, we have to learn how to let go...how to trust our instinct, our hearts, our creativity.

Yea it did.  I think it's true though.  We aren't trees, we aren't part of nature anymore.  How are we to know how it acts better than it?  We don't.  We took ourselves out of nature a very long time ago and have forgotten all that it has and can give.  We've lost our instincts in many respects.  So for a lot of people it's hard to trust them.  It's kind of scary letting go and trusting ourselves.

that's so honest and pure, and I couldn't agree more. In many ways we are destroying ourselves and each other but we still think we know best...we tend to forget who we are. What we used to be. What we can be...
