That is an enigma to me. If you believe in God (which I do), I wonder…how does he see me? Does he see through our outer body and see each of us as a unique glowing soul. This is not something I HAVE to have an answer to, I just wonder. ( scroll to bottom of this post for details on voting)
As I was playing around with some clay and came up with the rudimentary clay figure you see below I wondered what would that inanimate figure look like if it had a soul? When I painted this I imagined something beautiful in an eerie, ethereal sort of way. I see expression and feeling in the face, maybe that is just me. Maybe I tried to imbue a feeling from inside myself…I don’t know…it’s all a wonderful mystery to me.
The clay figure in this post is one of three “works in progress” clay figures I am working on simultaneously, and this is the one that inspired the idea for this painting. This is acrylics and oil pastels on 6″ x 12″ x 1/2″ MFD board. Those that know my work , know that I don’t spend a lot of time on actual fine art paintings such as this. I am usually drawing with colored pencils and ink on a daily basis on smaller works of art and my little ACEO art cards.
