Vitaly Didenko
without diminishing the merits of this picture, is definitely good, but we do not become a victim of stereotypes, and the endless publications that's just settled our brains, when we press the button "like"

Emma Williams
Better than the film!

Panagiotis Valais

Sarah m.rabie
Wooww !! It defines alot !

Kathy Jones-Boulier
anyone see the movie? i think it is foreign, The Girl with the Pearl Earring, very good movie, great acting etc. look it up. such a sweet story but the artists' wife is a bitch.

Kathy Jones-Boulier
btw there is a pic here, saw it and promptly lost it, by the same artist, called I think the milkmaid, a simple woman pouring from a pitcher. lovely. look it up if u can find it. this artist was a sleeper and now being lauded way way too late; perhaps he was just before his time like Vincent was.

Susan Kemp Maldonado
yes, Kathy, I saw the movie and I thought it was wonderful. Sarah Johansen (not sure of spelling) did a marvelous job!

Agneta Eriksson Hilden
Good for a woman to have secrets

In The Beginning of My Life I was disowned, rejected, disconnected from Love, but not pleasure. I knew how to get out of this Reality, this physical plane or Dimension. I would become creative with material within my reach. Assemble utility items that I could sell, trade or barter. At school I had access to tools that could help with any task or project. I started with lamps that I fashioned into miniature fireplaces, with logs that had a red light accent like flames. They were built out of used plywood, elmers glue, a few nails, and agate stones that I tumbled and polished. They had a small teak mantle inserted and a metal grate formed in welding 101. After a dozen sales at $20 each I moved up to coffee tables. I made a few dozen for $50 to $100 and moved up to Chairs & Rockers. I had an idea to copy a long back spindle chair similar to ones I had seen in a Frank Loyd Wright Building in Racine, Wisconsin. I made 8 chairs in 1 month and then acquired a job at General Electric.
I was in the 11th Grade and proficient as a Craftsman. I Enlisted in the U.S. Army and never returned to that kind of creation. I was A.W.O.L. In Europe and supported myself with Chalk Drawings of Madonna & Child outside of Cathedrals, with a brass bowl, in the bottom corner, to accept tribute, that church goers gave admirably. I can Hustle, Sell, Barter, or Trade any thing to anyone, except my Art. I deliberately blow the deal and resent frugal Patrons, resulting in a loss of friendship, and gaining a poor reputation. I think its age related. When I was young everyone was friendly and very physical with me. Older women always supported me even when their cuckolded husbands objected. Now, I'm older and untouchable. I don't even get hugs. I might create images that nobody understands, even know......undecipherable. ALOHA

All these Art Emperors live based on the death Artist’s Legacies with no doubt. While the Artist is alive, even they don't accept his/her call in any time. Please don’t give me wrong. you can test them yourselves. Mail them for a review or exhibition of your artworks, you will find your applications in a trashcan quite soon. They live in nice mansions or a House of Art with proudly call Art Galleries/Museums and the artists are suffering of poverty and struggling to pay the bills to live. Well. That kind of artist will be very lucky if he/she sells some paintings to those Emperors/Art Collectors, and they call him/her back in 5 to ten years if he/she is still alive or death. The good news will be if he/she is death to make some money but tons of money. They take your paintings and make their own stories about them and make them as an iconic painting and that is the time that their lottery matches for a jackpot. Basically, we all work for them for free. When they call their selves the Emperors, another meaning of that is the Slavery Masters. We create works of art until we are alive with no respect or appreciation and the end, they take advantage of them mercilessly. I am not venge it to discuss deeply but reality is the word of Lord. In the whole history of art, Mark Rothko was realized the exact meaning of Art Emperors which I am talking about.

Un hermoso rostro.
Se tejen historias a su alrededor.
El mito o la realidad?
Es muy bello, y se merece historias.

Los fondos oscuros transmiten el negro a la figura.
