details >> development >> here!.

Thanks for the DD and interpretations everyone, very very interesting already, much appreciated! :butterflytwo: :community::hug:

Okay, obviously it is my period of trying out new things. I need to do so because I am not feeling well, and it is some mixture of expressing it and sometimes distracting myself from it.

This is one of 5(?) first acryllic paintings "ever" and I started drawing with paint last week on monday, I think. And I am astound at how fast I learned to paint (well, or at least to get familiar with it. This was my fourth day and the fourth painting.

I chose not to give it a title to not distract from it's content and to leave room for interpretation.
Please share your interpretations of this piece, it would be most interesting for me to get some kind of analysis of this Thanks so much already.

PS: The colors and contrast are quite bad, I took a photo of it and the paper was a little bowed and waves were in please don't flame me for that.
Thanks so much.

Untitled I by *seafairy The cleverly twisted composition puts this into a sarcastic situation. ( Suggested by spot and Featured by yathosho )

Ah I think its more like the fishbowl, except for humans; being windows. The human feels like they're kinda on the outside looking in where there's not all right. Almost like the human is disgusted with the fish.

born of the sea, peering through an open window, reflection of shades of yourself, feeling connected though detached, to something that should not be, floating backwards, upside-down to a place where no one is quite sure what to make of all of this...

There are some very nice things going on in this painting. One thing I like about your photography is that you have highly developed compositional sensibilities, and it's nice to see that they carry over into your painting. The red/green colors repeated in the carpet, fish, and girl work out really well. The fish and water are quite nicely observed and rendered. Some things like the bottom of the couch being flush with the bottom of the wall tend to flatten it out a bit. More color wouldn't hurt the walls or couch either. Conceptually I think it works well on a subconcious level. It leaves room for interpretation, which I think is what you were after. Water for me has always had sexual connotations, and fish symbolize Christianity, so maybe this deals with conflict involving these two issues. It's unclear whether the girl is in a window or coming out of a painting. I would like it more if this was more clear. It's an awesome painting, though. Definitely worthy of DD.

Hmmm...this makes me want to take out my brushes again and overwork it, thanks for that. Yes, maybe it seems flat then. I also like how you interpreted various parts.
Thank you so very much for your time, it is greatly appreciated. I am glad to get critism from someone with your knowledge and experience in this genre.
Thank you.

could the interpretation of this piece be that the reality of the "real world" in its origonal state (represented by nature in the fish) is thrust upon the viewer in their "safe" hapitat of the couch. i.e. could this be a metiphor for reality tv or something like the news? the woman at the top could be the forgotten object i.e. when the focus is on the TV, noone in the room cares about the viewer, just what is views. However the link between the fallen fish and the woman shows the irony there because the people are watching "reality" on TV while it is in the room with them!

thats just what i thought when i saw it anyway :-)

You are being too kind to take your time to analyse it, to order your thoughts and write them down for everyone and me to enjoy and experience, thanks so much :hug: Read it with great interest!
