emergence @evawojcik

Here’s some color to add to the snow some of us are viewing as it piles up.  If anyone is  expert in dealing with lunatic Toshiba laptops that insist on doing just as they please, do be so kind as to speak up. You might save my sanity.  Oh yes, my dear Tosh has established itself as a lemon deluxe that delights in evading all efforts of human dominance. Absolutely refuses to create new folders. Insists everything scanned  become an album. I suspect a new puter is in order.

Or a new moi.

    I think I see a bird, a woman or a mermaid, and a sea lion, emerging together from the lower left to the middle of the painting… mountains or waves in the upper left, and leaves and roots in the lower right… Love the colors, very nice painting!
    Val sent me over here – she’s teaching me a lot about different perceptions…

      Welcome to my blogcasa, Barbara. So kind of Val to send you to “emergence.” One thing though, if you click on “emergence” and enlarge it, you’ll discover that it is not a painting. No paint. Just ‘ink’–stippling technique employed. Okay, now you’ve got me searching for the mermaid. LOL.

    I see mountains, sunsets, flow.

    And Echostains means Iggy Pop!

    • January 18, 2011 at 7:12 pm

      Hi Val. Thank you so much for identifying Echostains’ Iggy reference for me. LOL. Oh the things I just don’t catch/know/get. Much appreciate your help. Though I swear no drugs are involved in the creation of my art. Music, yes. No, Iggy Pop tunes–but now I am curious about this Raw Power album. Wow, never know where someone’s allusion might lead.
      Hope you’re enjoying the land flowings. Peace.

    It’s a witch !! I see a witch looking down, with her big nose and chin, and a large colorful eye !! 🙂
    How do you ever get all these dots in line !!! You must be one patient person !! Hourray for you !
    Get a Mac !!!!!!!

    • January 18, 2011 at 7:16 pm

      Napabelle, “your” witch is a very compelling image find!
      As for getting all the dots in line—I don’t even try. I just let the energy flow and go with it.
      LOL–MACs seem to be ruling the consensus here. I’m taking this advice seriously.

    Another beautiful energy scape, good for my snow filled eyes.

    Next time buy a Mac.

    • January 16, 2011 at 7:20 pm

      Considering that there are MANY types of snow, Lynn–I wonder which kind is filling your keen shutterbug eyes.

      A MAC–yes, that seems like a plan. Time to conduct a fundraiser for one! LOL.

    Love the raw energy of this piece Eva! As Iggy says ‘Raw Power is sure to come running to you’ Power is power, the secret is to harness it – and you have 🙂
    OMG Iggy has just come on TV ‘From the basement!’ In sinc – I rest my case!

    • January 16, 2011 at 7:17 pm

      Iggy? Who or what is this “Iggy”, Lynda??? Oh, ‘raw power’ —that sounds–dangerous! And exciting too.

  6. January 15, 2011 at 7:10 am

    Hey, has anyone else seen the caterpillar????

    • lesliepaints said,

      January 16, 2011 at 3:53 am

      Yes, it is near the figure’s left thigh. 🙂

      • January 16, 2011 at 7:14 pm

        OH a THIGH!!! I confess that is a new find for me too, Leslie. Ha. You made me look in another way. Thank you. LOL.

    O’kay, I’m going crosseyed! Meg says there is a running horse in this and I do not see it! I see the backside of a woman, two bird shapes a spring field, an egg and on and on. Lovely art, Eva! Especially since we can see so many things in it and come up with our own take!

    • January 15, 2011 at 7:08 am

      LOL!!!! O I adore Meg’s ‘horse” find. We’ve got to get her to point it out–so that either we can find it or compare nots on what others see in the same area.

      • Meg said,

        January 18, 2011 at 9:24 pm

        Sorry i didn’t see this earlier.

        The horse is the head, it is stretched out and elongated which is why I said it was running. The muzzle is on the bottom left corner. The eye is the leaf shape near the center. You can see the curve of the horses jaw under the eye and off to the upper right hand side there is green mane flowing.

      • January 18, 2011 at 9:36 pm

        YES! My eyes were working in the opposite direction, Meg. Thank you for delineating your perception. LOL. Indeed, there is running horse moving across “emergence”. What joy!

      • lesliepaints said,

        January 19, 2011 at 12:28 am

        Now she tells us! I see it too! Thanks, Meg!

    I love it. That is a very powerful image. And you
    don’t really see the same thing whether you
    look at it scaled down or full-size version.

    • January 15, 2011 at 7:06 am

      Hello graphic novel artist! Need to check out your work.
      Care to share whatever you’re seeing???

      • Kaoki Shiki said,

        January 15, 2011 at 9:20 pm

        I saw a woman at first in the middle. She looks like an angel but
        when i zoom up, she disappear. ^^

        it is very interesting to see the dots
        progressively appears as you zoom up and vice versa.
        the picture is evolving into something new.

      • January 16, 2011 at 7:15 pm

        I like that constantly evolving state, Kaoki. Thanks for your observation.

    Sweet vision of complexity. The pastel nature of the colors softens this beautifully. It is a healing piece.

    • January 15, 2011 at 7:04 am

      I hope it heals whatever ails you, bigsurkate. Wonder if it could cure those particular hang gliders…..mmmmmmmmm now there’s a thought…..

    Sorry, I’m a Mac. No help here with the Toshiba.

    But I am sooo glad that I clicked on your image in order to get the full scope of it. What an absolutely gorgeous piece of art!

    • January 15, 2011 at 7:03 am

      Glad you enjoy my art, ebbtide.

      Ahhh a MAC—I am beginning to serlously consider such an option. I wonder what the odds are of ME picking a lemon Mac??

  11. January 13, 2011 at 6:56 am

    Haha – computers will do your head in! What a beautiful painting – like there is a seed whirling about in the energy, ready to turn into something magical.

  12. January 13, 2011 at 3:05 am

    Beautiful image. Had to laugh about the laptop issue. I’ve got two broken ones at home which I insist on fixing (one day…)

    • January 15, 2011 at 7:00 am

      I keep laughing about the laptop issue—prevents me from taking a hammer to it!!!!!

    your pictures have a relaxing effect on me like i am flowing away

    • January 11, 2011 at 10:16 pm

      I am so glad that you’ve shared this relaxing positive effect on you, mAgdA. Just don’t flow so far from clegyrboia that it’s hard to follow your tracks back to your wild land art. Smiles.

    Beautiful landscape! I love the warm colors you’ve chosen for your palette. Many years ago, most of the art work I did was with dots. I found doing it very relaxing. I hope you do too.

    • January 11, 2011 at 10:13 pm

      Welcome, flandrumhill. I do my art in a semi-meditative state so I am very very relaxed while stippling or working with watercolors. Loved your recent posts on slugs and fungi! You offer a wonderful first hand perspective on nature with every blog entry. Thank you.

    After buying my first Toshiba laptops and having it divorce me when I needed it…I have not bought or considered one since. 🙂

    • January 11, 2011 at 10:10 pm

      LOL, O Charles! I doubt that I will purchase another Toshiba either after this go around with so many faults. A divorce is definitely in order!

    I love the running horse that I see so clearly. What do horses symbolize for you? I always think of them as a woman/earth spirit. I just remember riding into the autumn fields and watching coyotes catching mice in the newly mown fields and then running in the long straight way that ran alongside the field (where there weren’t any holes) This painting reminds me of this wonderful memory.

    • January 11, 2011 at 10:08 pm

      Hi Meg. Horses–for me they represent physical and spiritual power and strength of individuals and groups.
      I really like the image you’ve presented of coyotes catching field mice–have you painted this word image/memory?

    Just give the computer a slap and take it and demand a refund. lol
    I really like this, well all of your energy scapes.
    I like finding images within these, the kind that everyone sees differently

    • January 11, 2011 at 12:07 am

      Hmmm, how do I bribe with a treat and slap at the same time? Or which first? Hmm.
      OOO, good you like exploring and discovering, Tart. Have at it. Grins.

    I’m not the biggest fans of computers because they still are not as intuitive as I am. Plus the whole programmed obsolescence thing gives me the blues. It took so long just to pay for the last computer! Well, I hope yours decides to behave and too bad you can’t bribe it with a treat or something. Love the drawing…so much complexity happening within an intimate format.

    • January 11, 2011 at 12:06 am

      Me too, Al. Me too! Good idea–a BRIBE! Why didn’t I think of that? Bribe it with a treat instead of growling at it!
