Love song for a lightbulb by ellaine Love song for a lightbulb by ellaine
Thanks to your feedback and good advices I tried to fix the picture a bit - it's still not perfect, but better. Thank you. And thanks for all the interesting interpretations as well, it was great to read them and find out, what you think.


Actually there is a story behind it. But I rather leave it to you (to be honest, I'm even curious, what would your interpretation be).

Nothing close to realism, just making weird stuff. And I hate this picture composition-wise - I have no idea how to cut it to make it look good...

Done somewhere in the middle of July.

Oooooooooo. Świetne!
Odjechane, niejednoznaczne i prowokujące skojarzenia.
To lubię.

I love how you played with light, colour and texture here. It's quite an intriguing picture, I can't make up any theory about its meaning, but it has a powerful feeling, as I said, intriguing.

Her expression is what really makes the piece for me. It's calm. Serene. Adds an interesting layer to the potential story.

A, bo w międzyczasie zdążyłam ja poprawic, teraz jest OK.

Dzięki! Mam jakiś odchył na tle zieleni i turkusów.

I once knew a man who wrote a love song about a traffic light, so my imagination doesn't go very far with this one. I like the artwork though and I agree that the interpretations are wonderful to read.

That's interesting and unusual indeed:> . I guess, my case is less complicated, even if it doesn't look so. But, yes, I prefer to read other's interpretations. Just makes you realise, how many ways there are to read a piece of, well, let's call it, art.

Czyżby protest przeciwko temu, że Unia Europejska zabiera nam żarówki?
Świetna rzecz, zaś połączenie: włosy - kabel, serce - żarówka, naprawdę przekonująco.

Haha, dobre! Mogłoby być, gdyby nie to, że dowiedziałam sie o nakazie unii juz po narysowaniu tego. Ale pomyśł mi sie podoba:D.

Oh, this is so lovely. I love all the blues and greens included in this piece as well as the way you've detailed her hair. I also love the fact that it looks like this is completely traditional when it's actually digital. As for the composition, I think it really looks fine, though I'm not the best to ask about composition in pieces (I'm trying to work on that, myself).

This is wonderful! The colors are so great! :)

As for my interpretation of what this means:

The woman is the spirit of truth, knowledge, and wisdom; the light that illuminates the dark heart of the universe.

She literally powers the light bulb with the knowledge that she has within her. Each bulb (there are actually multiple bulbs that she creates) contains a small part of her knowledge and light that she can then give to humanity to help them become wiser.

She sings a love song to each bulb before she gives it away, as she thinks of them as her children; she is sad to give them up, and wants them to know that she will always love them.

By their knowing that she loves them, they will always be a good influence on humanity, and will never use their piece of knowledge to bring harm to those who look upon their light.

I really missed seeing your art, and it's great to see a new painting up. I love the rich blue tones in this painting, your shading is spot on as always. and, I love the overlying texture to the painting, it makes it look also traditional.

Very nice work, I love the colours, the lighting, the feeling and peace it gives... I`ve missed your works sooo much!!!

Well, it`s hard to say how to make this better, it`s very nice and it has your style, your own personality in it... but maybe one thing is that the head looks a little bit off balance, maybe and a tiny big for her torso... maybe the style is that way, but well, you could also enlarge the canvans so her head is not cut off at the top... else I don`t know what else you could change!!! Like Mozart said in the movie "You can`t change what`s perfect!" (yeah I watch too many movies too)!

Love

Aww, thankies, it makes me happy to know, that you missed me:>

Thank you for the advices - I have to think of it and analyse what can be done. I agree on the head - when I was painting it I wanted to make it less realistic and more simplified. But now I think some things just doesn't look good. And I just guess I didn't have the clear idea of what I wanted to achieve.

Well, but that's certainly faaaar from perfection:D

Of course you are missed, not only because I admire your work, but your style and well help!

About the painting, I am also seeing her dressed in a office suit with a telephone cord... mmm, interesting... not the usual fantasy attire or doll atire.

I also love love love her hands and the expression on her face... I love not very realistic paintings, she actually looks like a doll!!! Nice touch!

This is beautiful work. Absolutely stunning. Umm, I don't know what the story would be - she's into lightbulbs? Sorry, I'm a bit perverted.:blush: Maybe it's a reminder of her past, like from the death of a relative. Or maybe it is the soul of a relative, turned into a lightbulb by magic or whatever. Anyway, nice deviation.
