Information

latest painting :
Oil on canvas size 50-70.. time spend on this one :almost 3 months

Women with PMS :How agony repeats itself each month... As you can guess the idea for this one came up during my periods when i was crawling from the pain and this came image came before my eyes ( the only positive thing for a change :D ) So i had to paint it :roll:

Normally I paint with blue and green tones

. First time painting with red tones was a challenge for me.
For the body i used a reference photo from a magazine of and old greek statue in black and white.

To keep it in my own style i made the head hollow and 'cut of ' the arms and legs to represent how pain does make us feel hellpless : 'like we can't do anything against it' . The balls represent the a womens fertility . The red background should have been calm and spacy but ended up with red stormy clouds..
. Making the statue body 'alive' again was another hard part but i can say next to some mistakes i'm kinde pleased with it:)

I happened to have just hit my period today. How ironic I would view this today. :faint: This is rough, too, man, I never get cramps but I am this time! I feel you.

This painting so perfectly reflects it, too - the agony of feeling so completely female, whether you want to or not. Your whole body is suddenly aware of itself. How you include just the parts that really make someone physically female is so... ah, what is the word! Profound, it's profound! It's not the eyes or the brain or the arms or the legs.

Absolutely wonderful. Possibly even better than ever, since I identify so much. Your symbolism is so powerful.
