She Holds The Night Sky by yantotzkie She Holds The Night Sky by yantotzkie

“the moon is hiding in
her hair.
The
lily
of heaven
full of all dreams,
draws down.

cover her briefness in singing
close her with the intricate faint birds
by daisies and twilights
Deepen her,

Recite
upon her
flesh
the rain’s

pearls singly-whispering.”

— e.e. cummings, “the moon is hiding in”


20" x 30" Oil on Canvas.

Ha ha! If there is "creepiness" in this I can't see it. But if there IS, I simply accept it as part of the artist's thinking/imagination, and admire the fact that she can so ably express it in paint. I love the descriptive title, and have no problem with any part of the interpretation. Marvelous work! Keep going!

Can't believe this is done with oils, as I experienced it being so hard when it comes to small detail. You truly mastered this medium, this painting has amazing detail, the perspective is nicely done and I love the dull colors mixed with the blue :)

I usually use small brushes (size 00-02) for the details of my paintings. :D It'll be easier with more practice... and patience. Haha. Thank you! :)

It's beautiful! Someone once criticized my work, saying that I was doing it incorrectly, and the way they went about it affected me so strongly that I didn't want to do art again for a long time. I ended up taking something completely unrelated to art at university and I have regretted it ever since.

Sometimes there are people who think they know better than you regarding what you should be doing with *your* art, but they're wrong. Your art is yours, and no one else's. Never let anyone try to convince you otherwise.

Thank you. :) In my case, they actually sort of wanted me to focus on a particular art style which narrows down my creative freedom. It's a little suffocating. I don't want to paint just because this particular painting style sells or because this is the latest trend in the art scene and it's what people expect from me. Most of us, artists, create art to express ourselves, so I don't really get the point of creating art for the sake of meeting other people's expectations.

Good thing you managed to go back and create something again. It'll be such a waste of talent if you stop. :) Thanks for your lovely comment.

You are so right. Art is about expressing who you are and what you feel and what you need to say, not about what other people want to buy. Besides, your style of painting, from what I can see, is gorgeous! They should look at what you've already done and realize that they should just stand back and appreciate whatever happens next.

Thank you for saying that =). I missed a lot of years and a lot of opportunities for practice, but hopefully I can make up for it now.

Thank you! :) Good luck with your art! I also failed to have a formal art training so I had to work harder to make up for the years I've wasted doing something else. It is never too late. :)

Hm. You can be happy with your work, I guess it's really nice. There is something creepy in that picture, but I think it's well done and have somekind of a message. Keep your great work up.
