waiting. longing. for relief to come.
Mixed Media on Canvas 20″x 16″ by Susan T. Martin
opening image is photographed with a light source behind the painting.
This image is under regular light, the source overhead. I enjoy adding a little hidden dialogue to the painting, that the viewer has to work for, and think about. For instance, rather than wishing on a star, our little lady on the far right edge of the painting is puking on one…Oh, and is that star on the forehead of a fallen statue that we are all so familiar with? (Let the viewer use discernment).
I wont give you anything else… Just look, and wonder…This is a fun little painting. I am showing you a detail here of the upper left quadrant of the piece. So much to see, so little time! and now , without further adieu, I give you this :
