Solitude by ArtByCher Solitude by ArtByCher
Solitude: The state of being alone.
No matter who we are each person needs to be alone at one time or another.
Done with acrylics on 18x24 canvas

(I used Jim18 as a reference model [link])

This hit me, hard as I realized it's how I feel many time. With my CFS/POTS, I am unable to get out of the house and have had to give up many things in my life. It's sad knowing there are people out there, going through what I am...and they think they're alone in it.

Lovely deviation :heart:

how can you be so free when you paint...it seems so effortless.......

im trying to start a painting where no references are used, its just me, without all the bagedge.....im finding that quite difficult to do....

I wish it was Shelby. I know for me personally something just has to click in my head and I feel like I have to run with it. I have things sitting in my art room that I have not posted here because I'm just not happy with them.

oh....wellit just seems the only way to create a better challenge for myself is to let go a little bit everytime I begin a new art piece. I'm just trying to let myself grow and find my style.......and its definitly proving to be a challenge.

Oh my god, thanks, this pictures makes me feel sad and lonely.
Certainly an impressive work, though I usually don't like these kind of paintings so it won't find a place in my favorites, but you made your message pretty clear with this kind of art. :)
It's great to see how multi talented you are^^

Well anyways, this painting somehow reminds me of my own past and some other things, several kind of music comes into my mind and also some old games for the Super Nintendo, if you know what I am talking about.
Not many artists are able to let me feel that way. :)

I really like the way you shaded the skin with the red. It's normally such a strong, warm colour, but you made it seem alone and vulnerable. Great job! :heart:
