Wow--I just took a look at this piece and the ones posted below--such power and emotion. Art can be such a saving grace, don't you think? I know creative expression has gotten me through some difficult times where I really needed a voice--and it looks as if it's done the same for you. Very, very powerful. Thank you for sharing here--and again for the lovely comment on my blog.
muchas gracias por pasar y comentar en mi lugarcito.Si a veces nos frustramos de ciertas cosas y deseamos con todas las ganas de gritar hasta desgarrar la voz
Thanks Amanda and Ayelen.
hola,.muy amable,.por tu opinion,.veo tienes una admirable obra,.la cual examinare de una forma detenida,.un saludo,.Amancio.
estube apreciando tus pinturas,.veo que te gusta el retrato,.en ellos la particularidad de que muestran su dentadura,.no en una expresion agresiva,.sino mas bien desafiante,.utilizas el azul,.el agua,.cejas gruesas y luminosas,.es lo que puedo apreciar en este momento,.
Me gusta tu blog, muy particular y original, gran variedad de matices y varidad de colores.Te sigo.Saludos.
Thanks AutoUmbria and Ma Carmen.

Very powerful stuff. Looks like she's going to pull her face off.
Thanks My Style Canvas.
hola , bueno si soy creativo puedo decir lo mismo de vos, de donde eres?beso y luz !
Thanks Carlos Acosta.
Hola Shelley, gracias por el comentario! La idea de meter una cabeza en un frasco me vino por el hecho de que a veces me es muy difícil deshacerme de las cosas, es un poco macabra la presentación, por eso elegí un zombi :)Tus cuadros una vez leídos tus comentarios cobran mucho sentido y transmiten muchas cosas, supongo que todos hemos sentido esas emociones alguna vez en nuestra vida, o muchas veces, la sensación de sentirte agobiado, querer acabar toda una mala racha y tener ganas de simplemente gritar y deshacerte de todo lo malo, cuando me pasan cosas así lo que hago es simplemente desaparecer, irme a algún sitio que me transmita paz y pensar detenidamente las cosas para hallarles solución y sobre todo buscarle los puntos positivos a la mala situación, aunque creas que no hay siempre sacas algo bueno.En tu caso lo bueno es que puedes desahogarte con la pintura, pintar tus emociones, plasmarlas sobre papel, sentirte mejor y enseñarle al mundo la fuerza y el sentimiento de tu arte, cosa que estaremos de acuerdo, no todo el mundo puede hacer...:)Me he enrollado un poco la verdad jajajajaEs que tu blog me ha hecho pensar en muchas cosasTe deseo muchísima suerte y todo lo mejor!
Thanks Africa. T.M.
firstly, must apologize as i have had both computer and blogger problems that have caused me to be both offline or online and then trying to fix my screwed up blog...now i am again offline-well, on another's computer while mine is hopefully finally fixed....i wanted to come by and say hello...it's been ages since you commented over on mine and just now did i get it published-i think? anyway, thank you and love your art...very very intelligent and expressive...it's good to get these raw emotions out of YOU and onto the canvas... love your use of the color blue...please come by again.. xx
I know this feeling! :)
