    Little Girl in the window/ scary

    I think I posted this here many moons ago, when I first started using Art Rage. I just found it again in a hidden file because at the time I found it creepy so I hid it away. What is creepy about it, is I didnt even know I had painted the lil girl in the window. People started asking me who the little girl is. I have never been able to figure that out but she looks happy....still creepy. has anyone ever experienced the same thing?

    Jon, could not help starring at this piece, I think she loved the house you painted for her and she decided to make it her permanent dwelling lol

    It is a very lovely painting

    I love the impressionist style and the bold colors, and I like the little girl. Interesting that you don't remember painting her. This is truly a work of your subconscious. It is not creepy. The enviable point is that most people can't do this well fully conscious.

    I think I would use the word mystical and not scary.

    My impression is that an aspect of the inner child within is peering out to the adult artist. He/she does not have a scary, unhappy, fearful expression, he/she to me appears to have a happy and serene expression.

    The freaky thing is the image, I discovered, extends way past the edge of the frame it's sitting in on the Forum page. So I did not see anything about a girl, little or otherwise. I was squinting at the ivy waiting for the shapes to form into a face. And I couldn't understand why I couldn't see what apparently everyone else saw. . . Frustrated that my visual acuity has crashed and burned, I noticed the scroll bar under the pic and slid it to the right -- and about fell off my chair THERE SHE WAS!!!
    AAAARRRGGGGHHH!!!!!!!!

    Kinda like when the main actor opens the medicine cabinet all tense from hearing noises at night around the house. . . and then the second they shut the mirror, THERE's FREDDIE, right behind!

    Which makes me appreciate having a music track building in tension till you see it!!!!! and high violins screaming PSYCHO! PSYCHO!

    Meanwhile, for all the audience members who know what's coming and can anticipate the shock scene exploding onto the screen, the audience all wonders how the heck could you not see it while you were painting it, what with all the weird music playing in the background.

    Postulating why she was invisible to you when she was right there plain as you please, issuing forth from your brush, is that while you were painting you had the game on TV, and thus under that haze you were blinded by what every other male is blinded to -- where all females, except of course for females of the cheer leading persuasion -- all become invisible. Don't chastise yourself. It comes with being male during sports season.

    Ah, and she seems such a sweet kid too. . . but can she fetch a beer from the fridge?

    Nice enough painting, but a really swell creepshow. . .

    I have to agree Pat

    Mendota Yes thank you for your comment painting this and then finding the little girl was till a bit disquieting.

    SharJoY do have to admit it is a bit mystical to me as well thank you for your comment

    Caesar To funny my friend

    D Akey Mr. D you are so articulate and imaginative with your comments. someday I would love to sit and chat with a pot of coffee and and pic your brain for those deep and resounding thought you evoke lol. Yes it is a tad creepy and makes for a odd story. But true. I showed this to one of my daughters and they said "Dad" Thats Corrie , my next to oldest Daughter whom I hadn't spoke to in years. Maybe she said I need to call her, And She really dose look like my daughter. I think I was just missing her and she flowed out of my brush onto this painting. I did call my daughter at the time and she was in a bit of a pickle and I helped her out and all went well. but to this day was that my daughter reaching out to me for help or was it just a weird automatic painting

    Bold colors

    Bold colors, lots of texture, and little hidden things within the painting, like the face. Great. Since I have been away a while, glad you posted it again or I would have missed it.

    Great colours and scene. I think the girl in the window is looking out for the stick man dancing on the stool. (just something else I saw in this fascinating painting)
