This woman hangs out on my inspiration board which is over my little desk. Sometimes she’s hidden behind seemingly prettier more well behaved pictures or sayings. Tucked away just a little corner of color, a finger, a breast or an eye peeking out. Then things get jostled, moved around and she’s back out in full view. It’s like she’s pushed her way out and won’t be hidden behind the pretty.
Woman I by Willam de Kooning.
I don’t know what made me instantly pick her up as soon as my eyed washed over her in the MoMa gift shop but my hands flew to her and it was like picking up a part of me. Wild, scattered, colorful, fierce but constrained.
I’m feeling very much like Woman I as I go into the weekend. Hope it’s not too bumpy a ride. Have a good weekend.
“Women” became the sole subjects of of Mr.de Kooning. Perhaps that is the underlying sign, that you are drawn to women being the hero and the main attraction in your writings. Stay sane, while you create those mad characters and twisted plots.
I always love when you say, “You can’t make that up” in regard to some insane news or reality show.
Keep it real, enjoy the weekend woman.
I llike it! She definitely is different from the gal posted on PVE, but there is a piece of this gal too I see myself in on those crazy days! xo
I actually find that picture disturbing. Like to the point where I never want to see it again. lol
I love her! But poor thing~ she needs a new bra… just keepin’ it real! Have a great weekend Kwana.
Insane, sane…all pretty loose definitions, no? I like her. Reminds me of my friend Heidi’s art during some of her tougher periods.
That's Not My Age
Hope that doesn’t mean you’re wandering around with your breasts hanging out!
Have a lovely weekend.
I’m glad you followed your instincts – the key to inspiration, I think!
Happy weekend Kwana.
So glad to see this lady today… On this beautiful Sat. I am weepy, sad, discouraged and feeling fat. Oh, and I forgot, sugared up… what a coincidence!
Actaully may end up at MoMa today, so it has got to get better.
I’m so glad this woman is getting a reaction today. I’m sure that’s what good art is meant to do.
Colleen so sorry you are out of sorts. Enjoy this beautiful day and recharge yourself. The MoMa is the place to do it.
hmmm…she leaves me a bit speechless…and that is really saying something! 🙂
Hey! Love the new digs!
I love that work of art- its different yet cool and very interesting. I keep coming up with different stories of who she is and what she is about the more I look at her.
