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

Some think this is about loneliness....
It is just as much
about Epistemology... 
This work is hypnotic,
and.....a potential Meme....

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:

i see a field and house that was once filled with the joyful cries of children. the house sits there alone, abandoned, waiting for its family to come back D:

Really nice picture, compliments :heart:!

I love the colours and the way you used them. Soft and bright. Dreamy :love:

Actually when I saw it, I thought it could be a picture for a children book, or for a fairy tale. I can see little kids playing and laughing and running in the yellow sea field :heart:!

It's a barn that used to house horses, goats, chickens, and a stray cat or two but is now overrun with mice, termites, and weeds. The barn, along with the acres of farming land, have been on the market for a couple years but as yet there has not been anyone interested in caring for an aged farm. There has to be someone who will see through the age and abuse and see the beauty and charm hidden within.
