Blue Velvet by Jumprabbit Blue Velvet by Jumprabbit
Oil on canvas, 120 cm X 90cm. Aprox. 100 hours.

Portrait of Karen, this was going to be my entry in the trad art day contest, but I just didn't get it finished in time try as I might.
The blue took me FOREVER. ugh.
Photo a bit grainy, but you get that I guess.
Will put a WIP slideshow up at some point, wee bit tired right now.
:bounce: a DD! hooray!
Much love and thanks to sbaraci and stigmatattoo :D
Also to Karen for modeling, inspiration, putting up with my bitching about painting blue for 2 weeks, and feeding and watering me during the project.
Oh and also for being by my side through the good and bads :love:

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-11-16
"...he is one of masters of female nudes, painting them frail, and romantic, as if they were dream, seductive and shy, as well as complex as women tend to be. I just love the way he treats the cloth, the folds giving it amazing depth and volume as it wraps around the body and head, it flows and changes as the life itself does. It is complex, filled with contemplation and sadness, it is made with love, not only for painting itself but also for his partner." Blue Velvet by *Jumprabbit ( Suggested by SandraPelly and Featured by stigmatattoo )

So sensitive, and mysterious, and so human in its presence.
A tangibile spiritual element to it as well that speaks to the richness of what it surely feels like to be alive in your skin, in the moments your eyes are taking this vision in.
Have you heard of the Blue City of Chefchouen?
I sure am glad you're producing...

Thanks!

how can this possibly be a painting o.O just beyond words. however, it feels like the hand doesn't belong, a bit too chubby and crumple I guess. just my feeling, nevermind :D
