Daily Deviation

Given 2014-11-12
Strong colors and confident lines create the feeling of pulling one inside the mind of the child in When the rain washes you clean, you'll know. by jane-beata ( Suggested by Ginryuzaki and Featured by jenthestrawberry )
:icontheteamkidd:
This piece is wonderful. The look in this child's eyes is so strong, showing confidence and strong will. He is clearly a fighter and will not let the world knock him down. The way the water is washing him away seems to be nothing to him, hes allowing it the flow around him, happily enduring it. The puzzle like form is showing us that he is fragile but not yet broken. A very good painting from this artist. Again I must say the eyes are captivating. Making every body that sees this a little more confident I believe. Well Done.

This picture shows a great many things to me.

It's a true creation - at first I couldn't find words.

Where do I begin? When I looked at this I see resilience, strength, willpower in the changing world, running colours and a fluid life, and this child standing strong amidst it all.

Parts of him disappear into the blue, the darkness and shifting sands, adding a strang sense of reality to it. This pride and strength he shows is not untouched, he has not come through this world unscathed. The rent on his neck, it speaks of blood, of turmoil, of great damage done to him phyiscally or mentally.

In his eyes I see things...in the left I see people, in the right I see a city, layers of a city, crowds of people, facelss identities in a nondescript world all coupled together by singular lack of purpose as this demon, this warrior, this strength, walks amongst them.

Someone who won't let go, won't back down, who has seen that which can heal and that which can hurt, but fights on anyway.

For the record, blue is my colour. It's part of me in such a way to be intertwined with my world. Azure is the colour of being.

"Never surrender, never get held back, keep going forward even if it takes you against the tide."
- Therix, of Ksi'm'yen

Stunning work. The water looks like tears streaking, but yet the eyes are direct and clear and filled with light and certainty. No tears there. There was a trend more than 20 yrs ago that every house of friends i visited had a "crying child" portrait, and they were all quite lonesome looking. This is like the perfect antidote to that trend. The "i'm not crying" child =D
This is really beautiful. I hope you get a good price and it finds a great home.

Great painting.I have a question,in the left eye you watered down the (rain) paint and let it slip over the eye.The right?it has a much stronger hue,did you stop it and repeated the prosses under the eye?it is a little light blue,so maybe you repainted the whole eye.Have a nice day
