A pair of....; connected, one incomplete without the other,
intended to stay together, 2 = optimal function,°°°°°
wondering about that one shoe left by the roadside
frustrated at not finding the other glove on a cold winterday
a mother who donates one of her kidneys to her son
having only one eye is natural for a cyclop
what does an angel do when he loses a wing?
.....and i read somewhere goats can die of loneliness
dear Helen of objects of whimsy made me pondering °°°° about
an intriguing theme, please take a look at her lovely blog for more pairs
this is the image i had to paint and i had to convince myself
not to use blue this time (pretty difficult for me:)
wishing you all a pair of happy weekend days
Oh Renilde...when I saw that writing about the goat and loneliness ! I think about that often with birds and animals...that we are so connected in ways that are a mystery at times...this is what your painting gives me :)ReplyDelete
dear renilde, this is a wise AND beautiful post! and of course: I love goats! but only a pair... xx manoReplyDelete
your words, your beautiful words
and that goat, ahhh....
I have heard that more often
about animals which die when their partner is gone
the theme made me think
in a totally other direction
yes, your wonderful words.
And... in fact that you've chosen to paint without blue, you're including blue with the orange, that complementary colour to blue. A pair of colours.
Even the black shades bind their partner, don't they?
Today I've seen my neighbor in his car, driving in a parking place. I've nodded a regard, then looking at the place for the co-driver... empty... his wife died some months ago, but/and is still present.
"goats can die of loneliness" oh poor thing... :(ReplyDelete
then i wont buy one goat.
especial esta pintura que quiere ser collage. muy especial, así como tus palabras.ReplyDelete
Hello, Renilde, I like your work!!!!ReplyDelete
dear renilde, i love goats!! and i adore your collage of pairs.ReplyDelete
love julia, the happy brand new owl - earring - owner;)
well can i say i almost miss your blue? i didn't know that aboout goats either, and there's a lot more to find out about goats in that movie, with george clooney, of all people. apparantly, staring at goats, ... etc... ;)))ReplyDelete
i like this peeling away the one from the other in your painting.
I love this and I have a thing about goats my brother and sister are both capricorns and quite 'goatlike' heehee!
Your first drawing is beautiful and minimal but I love how you bring colour and vibrance into the theme with the following images.
I love these challenges and keeping company with such talented souls!
This is a lovely post, Renilde. I'm so glad your goat found a friend in the bottom photo. Your painting is full of colour. Disconnected pairs have a sadness about them but they make me crazy when I'm doing laundry!ReplyDelete
Yes, Renilde.. a pair is stronger in any form..ReplyDelete
Even only one shoe, one glove or whatever is lost!!
I love the way you draw for this challenge...
I love goats. I am a Capricorn and have always felt a connection. Thanks for the interesting post!ReplyDelete
