I really like that.
i like it, too. nice take of the topic. i am curious if you'll add something more in your illustration.....
lovely! I like it as it is.
Oh! This is so beautiful and haunting - I love so much how you've created this picture and the words too. I wanted to read more...:-):-)
Lovely text and illustration!
Beautiful - simple, yet haunting. Gorgeous work.
oh my oh my i love it...see, that dining room table works for you. happy IF.
This is a really beautiful drawing. I love the the wrinkled brown paper. It reminds me a little of Toulouse- Lautrec.
FABULOUS! Everything about this is great - LOVE the paper!
Oh yes, keep it as it is I say! This really captures that feeling of broken promise. Excellent Laurel!
You've touched on something we've all felt in one way or another. Haunting and perfect!
I love it. The simplicity, the details in the coat, the beautiful expression, the economy of line, the horizon and that flash of blue. There is so much to say about this piece, so many subliminal messages you're sending. I can't stop looking at it!!The dining table, well, economy of space might just be an inspirational tool..:D
Thanks everyone! I feel like I'm back and it feels so good!
Hey Girl friend, Really liked your drawing a lot. I am writing also to say I liked it better when you had your face on the blog not just your eyes. Anyhoodle. I'll talk to you later. love, MH
Great illo!I simply like how you have captured the mood here with clever use of brown paper:)
Your are NOT suffering having to work on the kitchen table; I think this is one of my very favourites or yours of all times. Have a nice weekend.
i really love this and it breaks my heart a little bit too :( moving and beautiful! i really love your little avatar too it touches me deeply and makes me think of my ratboy :)
Very introspective! Is this on a brown bag?? wowzer.
WOW! That's great, a wonderful take on the theme and so often so painfully true!!!And a very cool illo!!!!!
Damn, that's a cool effect drawing on the paper. Very nice. And the lines on the face very gentle but beautiful. Very cool. You are so bloomin' versatile in your techniques.
This is really amazing! So simple and perfect. I love it.
Truly beautiful and very touching. I really like the whole effect.
Really good! The dining room must be happy to have you doing art there again
Love the simplicity, the lines and choice of colors.
wow, this is great!i like your style, too.
Beautiful illustration! I like your concept, the simplicity, the colours! Very creative!
Great rendering!You conveyed the feeling of bittersweet sadness with the downward baby blue stroke and pale pink lips tied together with the paper bag.Excellent!
I really like this! I love to see work on unorthodox materials!Fantastic stuff.:)
Oh, this is just beautiful in it's simplicity
Love it. Of course, now I want something sweet.
Great, I like it as it is, and I love the idea behind it!http://indigeneartforms.blogspot.com
Wonderful idea and execution.
I love this piece.
Lovely take on the theme - great expression conveyed.
Very beautiful! How daring to make something like this on a paper bag! It is so great, I would frame it!
Unique, simple, beautiful. This is so very nice. P.S. The story you shared on my sugary entry was disturbing, but it made me and the guy I married laugh very, very, hard. I plan on telling it to everyone I meet regardless of the situation. Job interview? Poop story. Christmas with my grandma? Poop story. My best friend's wedding? Oh you better believe everyone will hear the poop story when its time for me to give my drunken maid of honor speech. So, THANK YOU for that ;)
If you had not told I could not have realized that it was paperbag.. It is beautiful and with a touching story!
i like the take you have on the theme of sugary, very deep. Its also interesting to see you chose the paper bag to put the image on. its such a visual quality in all. great stuff.
awww I very much like this one. just lovely.
Very touching...very sad...very well done and well said. We've all been there and the feeling you created is "familiar."
Outstanding in every aspect...well done! :)
aw dang laurel, a sugary illo based on heartbreak. that does it, me too!!!beautiful and evocative piece...i'm so sad for all the girls and boys that get suckered by sweet talk.
oh, a nice change from your usual... very neat style.
this is so lovely. I like the media, too.
gee i missed alot already.. this is a very cute and sentimental post 8) and yeah promises promises.. they are meant to be broken.. *sigh* tho im corssing my fingers on something.. hehe..well my new watercolor is up tho i know i need to practice more hehe..
Very beautiful! I love your use of empty space, it is very expressive.
Bello, bello, bello!Cata
Wow!! She's beautiful! You can really see the disappointment in her expression. Wonderful work!
Yeah! Your dining table seems given you inspiration for creating something different from your usual painting! I like the sentimental feel of this drawing, lovely style!
Gosh, that's goooooooood! Incredibly touching piece. So full of raw emotion. And the words are perfect. Minimal, but just enough to make you think of all the things that must have gone on. WOW!I also enjoyed reading about your visit with Sketched Out! I LOVE her stuff! But I also love yours, so I've given you an award over at my place. Have a wonderful day.
Oh, now I REALLY like this! It's so true sometimes that less is more, very well done.
Wow, different take on the topic. Very nice!
Look at you go on your dining room table!! I love how this illo looks on brown paper. Sort of reminds me of Toulouse-Lautrec. I'm also enchanted by the evocative words that accompany this poignant image. Your studio is inside you!
You make art out of anything! This expresses her woe so well. Sorry to hear it happened again :( Love your simple color choice. Hope your week is going well. Thanks for all your comments.Peace and joy~
Wow! I really love the way you drew this. And I like how you took sugar and turned it into something bitter.
Oh! Preciosa!I like your style.
this is AWESOME... saying a lot in a nutshell...
