Week 3 - 52 Week Project "Vulnerable"


Here is my 3rd print, in the 52 week series. A limited edition of 12 5x7 prints will be available, 10 of which will be for sale on etsy for $5, Free shipping. 2 will be given away. Watch next week for the first four to be given away on the blog.
This is a theme that I keep returning to. It makes me feel unsettled, but for reasons unnamed, I feel compelled to paint these girls in a sinister situation. They are Vulnerable.

I just love your birch trees...and the bear. In fact, I even have a similar painting hanging above my bed. This is one of my favorites of your subjects.

This is a great picture, to me it looks like the bear is looking after the 2 girls who maybe got lost in the woods!
I love how people can get different perspectives from the same piece of art, to you it feels sinister and to me warm and loving ;)

wow - your work is amazing! Love the restrained use of colour, the expressions on the faces and the simple yet powerful composition. Wonderful!

I like it! I posted your Three Muses as an Etsy favorite on my blog. It was hard to pick. Have a wonderful week.

I love this painting & I thought the same as Micki- I thought they were all freinds! Doesnt' it go to show that the beauty of art is found by the viewer in so many ways. Either way its fantatastic.

I really love this one, Julie. I agree with another commenter in that we do bring our own perspective to another person's art---I think that's a cool thread. I love the colors in this piece and the technique on the trees---serene, yet a bit of tension. The bear's rosy cheeks tell their own story~~Thanks for sharing.

This is such a big story telling painting. Lovely!

I, too, feel the bear's protection. I live where the bears are frequent visitors and I love to watch their gentle ways. This painting is special!!!
