no place by ~chris-tel

The suggester says: I adore the contrast the blood-red shoes make with the dismal rest, the way we seem to be stepping up to the edge of the life we know to catch a glimpse of no place and our own shadowy reflection rises up to meet and mock us...this painting speaks to me of uncertainty and limits and what we find when we slip out of the world we know...

Well, this is about as close to perfect composition as you can get, imho.
Excellent! Lovely color balance, too.

This is a really moving piece. I've been in places like this and wished I was at home where I knew I'd be safe. I have to say this is very well thought out. Having the shoes only showing on the top fourth of the painting makes it more dramatic and you have a talent for backwashes which are not always easy to accomplish. Excellent work!
