Nocturnal Garden with Visitor

Plants and sky are finished.
The next one will be on a white ground because I think I'll try another fabric design or t-shirt. For cloth printing, the black background is a disadvantage.
Painting plants on a dark ground reminds me of nights under trees. Plants breathe like plants at day-time, but like animals during the night, consuming oxygen, as we do; could it be they sleep at day and are awake at night?

Eva, it is perfect, it is beautiful! I love it!
What a fellow this Tatzel is! Der hat es faustdick hinter den Ohren! Ein Lauser und ein Schalk! And a charmer! Und ein bisschen hinterfozig, wie man in Bayern sagt! He is flirting with the rose! Look at his body language! There is a lot of erotic in this painting and seduction too! The sweet rose seems to be interested, neigt sich ihm zu, is listening to his whispers...
Hm - wow!

This is indeed a beauty! Look at how he is hovering over the rose! He has only one thing on his mind!

BRAVO!! Es ist erstaunlich schoen!

Yael said...

Also Eva, ich krieg mich ja gar nicht wieder ein! I really love this!
"Der Taztelwurm entdeckt die Rose", nein nein, das sagt es ja noch gar nicht aus, da solltest Du noch punkt punkt punkt ... dahinter machen!
So ein fiesiger schmeichlerischer Schelm!
Ich schmunzele und laechle Dich an liebe Eva - koennte es sein, dass Du das gar nicht bewusst gemalt hast, was da herausgekommen ist? Freud Freud???
You are just great, you know that?

This is such a magical piece. I love the black background...why is it a disadvantage?
I have been taking a little vacation and not posting or reading blogs as often as before. Will be back in full swing soon.

Thought I left a comment ...just came back to look at this again, it is one of my favorites of yours. He's like an id monster, but sweet.
