karen's Description: one of my favorite "mindscapes", as Hanjo called them.
OKQuite GoodGoodVery GoodGreatMasterpiece
I’m really taken aback that here in the small reproduction so much of the rich gamut of colours and what the different layers reveil in the original is missing. The atmosphere is there, no doubt, but the story or the traces of the brush work that makes it such a fantastic mindscape or even better a heartscape isn’t quite visible. I never minded this lacking in a reproduction of a portrait or body. Alone what the tiny remnants of the preparatory coat in a bright and sunny orange does to it is overwhelming. So maybe one day we will have another Trapani like encounter where all of this could be seen. And I’m afraid that all I’ve said about this piece will be true for Hillels latest one too. What a pity. But nevertheless I love to see this painting here . . . it was about time!
Saying it in another way, Karen, I love these landscapes-portrait- paintings! They are really like nudes paintings! Maybe that's what you commented on the other painting, that you've spent a long periode of your life observing the sea. I can feel that in these paitings! More of those!!!
