Abandoned by ArtByCher Abandoned by ArtByCher
Painted with a mix of acrylic and soft pastels. 11x14


“Life, misfortunes, isolation, abandonment, poverty, are battlefields which have their heroes; obscure heroes, sometimes greater than the illustrious heroes”
~Victor Hugo

I wanted to leave this open to interpretation. What is the story behind this house? Who lived there? Or does someone still do?




Done with acrylic and soft pastels on smooth paper

Oh...this is great!
Artwork which shows loneliness in any way usually gives a beautiful -OR- a depressing feeling. This one does both at the same time (at least it does to me  )

Hi Chery,
another masterpice! There's tension and harmony in the colors, the light and in the structures too.
To me, it seems as a friendly place to go to, after a long wandering in the wilderness - so, an allegory for the way of life.

love and peace to you,

Harald

you're right - those who live in love don't care their house is small as the whole world is their home :la:
