Lastima by Mivala Lastima by Mivala
18"x24" Acrylic on Canvas
I made this piece back in April but have yet to get a really clear photo of it. It was the last full acrylic-on-canvas piece I did before I took a little break from art. It's fairly simplistic as compared to a lot of the other work I'd done -- it came immediately after [link] and [link] -- but it's certainly not lacking in significance or meaning. It's a very brooding piece, but also a hopeful one, I think. The original image is from one of my sketchbooks from earlier this year; I wrote a message to myself on the original, and then tucked it away for awhile. When I found it again the feeling still clicked, and that was enough....


It's currently on display in a gallery and spent a very short time in my home; I'll hopefully be getting a better picture in the next few months.

Lastima is a Spanish word.
And here's a song to go along with this: [link] I don't listen to music when I paint, but I feel like these moods sort of pair up.

Reminds me of the summer thunderstorms here in AZ at night, quite nice. (Sorry. I've been...busy with life, and therefore relatively incommunicado)

Those clouds remind me of Van Gogh :). I think it's ironic that the clouds themselves are illuminating the area instead of the sun. I wonder what that means...
