Hi Renee,
Each of the paintings is serious,
They seem to address dealing with pain. The pensive and penetrate eyes, inviting us into each world.

Been thinking of, and praying for you, Jacquie, Sheldon and your mother.

With love,
Constance

I smile on your heart~

Angela Recada said...

Good morning, dear Renee.

You always find the most incredible works of art. They make me think and feel. They make me want to continue to find the true artist in me and DO something with those feelings.

Are you feeling disjointed, pecked at, poked and prodded? An emotional pincushion? I'm so sorry for all your pain, dear one.

I'm sending you and your dear ones all my love.

Oh my gosh, gorgeous and disturbing pieces. I'm thinking of you all, and praying, too. Always. Much love to your family, Renee. xoxox Pam

Bonnie, Original Art Studio said...

Hi Renee: Wow, what interesting and even disturbing pictures. The eyes seem full of pain and anger - or is that just my projection. In your shoes, I would have plenty of both. Hope you are well and that Sheldon and Jacquie are free from suffering.

Artistic Accents by Darla said...

Oooooooh, these are very cool artworks! I love how people can be so creative. If I could only remember my dreams more vividly, I think I'd have a better imagination!
These are awesome.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend sweet friend!
Love, Darla

Silke said...

miss renee, are all those prayers doing anything? because if they're not i could throw myself on the floor and kick my feet very high while boohooboohooboohoohoo-ing and that might be better. i will tell kj what you said but i'm still thinking about the bunny hug

yours truly,
emily rabbit

Have a great day Renee! Thank you so much!

lakeviewer said...

These pictures must be a diversion. Good thing, too. As for me, I love diversions, adventures, trips and excursions that take me out of my confort zone for a little while.

Then, I want my bed, my blanket, my books, my cooking.

Angela Recada said...

I love you, dear friend. And I hope you find some peace, and the chance to breathe deeply, this weekend.

xoxoxo

secret agent woman said...

Okay, I'll answer it here - yes, as long as it's okay with your husband. I'm going wedding dress-shopping now. :)

Allegra Smith said...

I see defiance, acceptance, hope, questions, answers and a myriad of other components in the eyes. Like real life and real pain, there is a collage of things said, experienced and silenced by the power of our thoughts. I do not find the images disturbing in the least. Quite the contrary, they are intriguing, powerful, helpless, all that reflects their humanity in ways that are free to be interpreted by the viewer. Isn't that what art is truly all about? Just like our emotions, free to be either interpreted or misinterpreted once they have been filtered by an outside source.

The one thing you are never going to be able to misinterpret is my true affection for you and your never ending search for meaning outside the self. You are beautiful and your choices reflect that without margin for error. From life to life, I promise.

K said...

once again...i always look forward to my fridays to see what images you have posted. xxooo - hope things are going well.

Ces said...

Let me see, what do you think? Whatever you think, I will agree with you.

studio lolo said...

Hello my dear Raven Sister,

My interpretations, for what they're worth.

B is stunning! Such a spiritual journey going on here. A transformation. The art is exquisite.

L is powerful!
having a bird on your head is said to be good luck, especially a black bird like our wonderful Ravens. here I feel it represents an awakening of sorts. The red feathers (blood feathers perhaps) are in a healing circle as if putting the medicine/magic where it is most needed.

D...I see two things here, accupuncture for healing, but I also see this person as a 'specimen' for us to learn from. Much in the way a butterfly, bug or bird will be pinned down in a museum case.

Wow. heavy stuff this week. I do love them, and you.

xoxoxo
Lolo

Prayers to the family ;)

Sonia ;) said...

I love them...The first one...I think of you..Taking reigns...The second is you realizing your heart is that big to loveas deep as you...which you guarded for awhile...The last one is all the thoughts welling up inside coming through your pores...Love the art..but love you more...relax and take care of yourself.

Daria said...

No favorites this time ... they are all too disturbing.

kj said...

there is strength in each of these faces. but what i really want to say to you tonight is you are wonderful.

Snowbrush said...

Ha, it just gets weirder and weirder, Renee. I am SO glad that I have a mentally normal, artistically proper, emotionally healthy, straight-and-narrow kind of blog!

Sophia said...

Hi Renee..I LOVE the first one the best. Sending you lots of love and gold dust your way for all your wishes to come true. :)

Have a good weekend.

Jaliya said...

Renee ... The third piece, by Dino Vallis ... led me to search out his work ... http://dinovallis.com ... I don't remember the last time I was so taken by an artist's work ... Thank you so much ... I needed this tonight ... Awful, deadening day for me ... feeling like invincible winter ... This too shall pass ... Bless you for being in the world xoxo

lyptis said...

Fucking Hell this shit is trippy!(that was the first thing that came to my mind:)

Interesting pictures, where do u find that stuff?!

Woman in a Window said...

I love her lips on that first one, although her eyes are so sad. And then the second I want to shoo shOOO! that bird away before it pecks. And that last, I want to read. What? AND WHY? That's what I want to know.

Be well, Renee
know you're loved

Hi Renee - these images grab your attention and pull you in ...

you made me smile this morning about not being able to spot the bird - I had a mental picture of your nose fixed to your screen straining your eyes to see ;) the bird is white against the pale tree so it's well camouflaged and if you pull your nose back a little you'll spot it on top of the hollow. Smiles*!*
