yo mama




I like the background, but the women are much too graphic.
Even so, I can't help liking them.
Even if they're, whoops, both missing digits.

I have upon occasion painted six-fingered women.
I like them, too, graphic or not.

SamArtDog said...

Yeah, they're in good company. Mickey Mouse had six fingers, too.

They both look happy. I wonder if they had some cherry pie.

How do you paint women from your imagination? Incredible.

reminds me of a Diego Rivera painting. Love it!

Carol--
it's as much possession as imagination. Is there a difference?

Diego Rivera?! Wow. Thanks, Celeste! For now, you'll have to excuse me while me and my fat head try to get through the door.

I agree with Celeste, they do feel very Diego Rivera-esque. Keep painting these women. They are awesome.

Thanks, Loriann. You encouragement always means a lot to me.

Beautiful painting - I love the tenderness with which the daughter wraps her arms around her mother. I’m also struck by the enormity of the daughter who almost seems to dwarf her mother who is so much smaller. Botero has a painting where a boy riding a horse on wheels, monumental in size dwarfs his parents positioned in the lower right corner of the foreground in a doll house looking anxiously for the whereabouts of their son.
