I think that is a beautiful painting with stunning colour and composition. I'm very curious if you decided to not painting her genetalia for any particular reason. It looks jarringly empty when the rest of the painting is so detailed

thank you for your comment.
its already a long time ago that i painted this, but i think the reason was to de-sexualize the figure in this painting a bit.
it was more about a feeling of weakness of the human body, which i wanted to express with some kind of nudity, but without sexualizing the figure too much.

Oh mein gott, das Licht, die Farben, transparent und schillernd und opak ... und... i am just at a loss for words.

Mir gefällt einfach alles an diesem Bild und es ist nicht dieses flüchtige "ohhh, wie hübsch", sondern so ein Einatmen. Und Luft anhalten.

Damit würde ich gerne eine Wand füllen, wenn meine Wände höher als der Raum lang wären. Und dann bräucht man natürlich buntes Glas in der Deckenkuppel... *kehrt in ihre Berliner Altbauwohnung mit den Schiefen türen und dem animexx"blau"en Stuck zurück"

One day... one day...

Der Kommentar soll übrigens nicht darauf hinweisen, dass ich dieses Bild für das Ideale Wandmöbel halte. Dafür würd ich meinen ideellen gigantischen Raum schon möbelfrei halten ; )

Great artwork! I reminds me of William Blake, and also Pre-Raphaelite artists, if that doesn't sound mad! Beautiful colours and detailing.

Lovely drawing... would assume the person is being eaten by the disease? And influenza does sound feminine.. it could even be a name...

The lady looks like a friend of mine... really strange to look at! Great piece!

Dann kann ich dir ja auf deutsch antworten - hihi!
Ich danke dir für den Kommentar.
Hast du dir das wirklich alles durchgelesen?
Ja, ich glaube es geht um Krankheit in dem Bild, die mir irgendwie allgegenwärtig erscheint. Je älter man wird, umso mehr kriegt man davon mit. Als Kind hatte man jedenfalls noch keine Ahnung davon...

I read through most of it, sometimes I try not to be repetetive in my comment or am just curious what others have to say.
Also as a child one is comfortably ignorant of many things. Sometimes it would be nice to go back to that.

Irgendwie sehe ich die Influenza förmlich in dem Bild o.O Die Farben wirken irgendwie total fiebrig - aber ich bin ein großer Fan von (Fieber-)Träumen.

Kranksein lässt einen verzweifelt fühlen. Manchmal hat man bei einem ganz banalen viralen Infekt das Gefühl, dem Ende schon sehr nah zu sein.

Ich liebe das Surreale an diesem Bild. Irgendwie sehe ich Flügel, sehe Wolken, sehe Kreuz, sehe Überheblichkeit, sehe Erhabenheit, sehe Leid, sehe Geschlechtslosigkeit, sehe Geburt und sehe Tod. Sehe Schmerz, aber auch Wohlbefinden.

Paradox.

Du hast ziemlich genau ausgedrückt, was ich malen wollte. Ich kriegs nur noch nicht genug hin, das alles noch mehr zu balancen, also ich möchte eigentlich negatives und positives zu gleichen Teilen im Bild haben...

Wann zeigst du mal wieder eins deiner Bilder, von denen du zweifellos nach unserer Unterhaltung auf der LBM einen rießigen Haufen gemalt hast? :D
Und hey, wann machen wir unsere Zeichnertreffrunde? :)

Das Gespräch auf der Buchmesse hat tatsächlich etwas geändert und bewegt. Zwar bin ich noch immer nicht dazu gekommen, "richtige" Bilder aus Öl oder Acryl zu malen - aber ich nehme mir tatsächlich wieder mehr Zeit zum zeichnen. Die beiden Aquarelle, die ich hochgeladen habe, sind vom letzten Wochenende - endlich mal wieder etwas Farbe :)

Die nächsten Tage werde ich Deviantart mit diversen Charakterzeichnungen aus Rollenspielrunden "überfluten". Allerdings folgt dann erstmal wieder Ebbe, was neue Bilder betrifft. Neues müsste dann eben erst noch entstehen ;)

Wann hättet ihr denn Zeit? Bei mir sind bisher nur die ersten drei Juliwochenenden besetzt. Zur Zeit ist sogar genug Geld für einen kurzen Leipzigtripp auf meinem Konto :)
