Portrait by dadenko Portrait by dadenko
An 11 X 14 inch acrylic on Cresent Illustration Board. A representational piece for a woman I once knew. Beauty, tension, self-destructiveness, storms, photography. A few of the 'sub-illustrations' in this work went on to be paintings in their own right, The fence link became several works with fences. The bullet was one smaller painting and is the center point of one in progress right now. The eye was repainted from a portrait of the gal I'd done prior to this one.

i've watched you and had a few of your things as favs for a while, but i rarely take the time to comment since i'm not a visual artist and have little to add that would be constructive and figure the fav alert would be enough, but on this one...

i love the idea. the representational portrait...i think you may have created one of the most insightful images of a woman without showing any more of -her- than an eye. it's absolutely fantastic and resonates deeply with the philosopher/mystic that far too often gets sacrificed to daily existence.

oh, and just as a side note, even if you hadn't explained that it's a portrait, that's how i would have interpreted it. heh, i'm not sure i would have been able to see anything else even you had an alternative explanation.

lovely idea! The woman must be so flattered having something so beautiful come from you knowing her!

You just never cease to amaze me. Your figurative and literal representation together is so subtely intense that sometimes I can't tell what's what, but it's always beautiful.

Mm. The pictures themselves are amazing. I don't think I would have incorporated them like you did, but I guess it's all a matter of style. Awesome, dade.
