what may be

48 x 48 acrylic on canvas here's some other coments i thought were interesting from jacseery/Jac (5,551) on March 17, 2005 4:48:28 PM EST (0) An intriguing ambiguity of space and form/shape and edge/positive and negative - all wonderfully backlit. I can't hold my alcohol - I don't practice enough - but looking at this - and the wine on the table and the way she leans into him...it's very evocative of that risky flirting I am prone too after a very small glass of anything alcoholic :-) My favourite bit is the way she rests her hand on his thigh under the table. Have to admit that my eye is drawn then to the orange furnace of his groin... hell I oughta go for a run :-) Reply Show ratings Rate this critique Helpful No opinion Unhelpful from jan/Jan (1,260) on March 17, 2005 3:29:35 PM EST (1) This is an awesome work. Lawrence did a much better job articulating my feelings about this than I could so I just wanted to add my kudos on a superior work of art.

This looks more 'Dornbergian' than others of yours - the palette and perspective is great - I'm a little bothered by the relatively empty right side, but very nice to see this, Karen. Yeeow - I just came back to say - looking at the thumbnail gives a whole new perspective - looks like you're viewing a long room with the sucject sitting far back - kind of cool effect.
