Lane's Grandfather

- by Mindy Goldman

This week's theme: The Human Form

One of the first images ever fashioned by mankind was of the human form. Thousands of years have passed, yet we are still fascinated by the beauty of the body and the relationship that we have with it.

-Melissa Morton


Art: Lane's Grandfather by Artist Mindy Goldman
You should feel as though you walked into something to which you're not invited. The annoyed look, the sharp lines of the porch, the muted colors and the body language of BOTH figures says "stay away". The viewer isn't clear whether the annoyance is about you or between the two figures, but I wanted to capture the feeling of intrusion. I also applied the paints in thin layers to complete my capture of the essense of Hopper's style. I wanted to create a certain distance between the subject and viewer
