It was good practice, but I somehow prefer the first version more.

So beautiful work!

I can't decide which one is better, there appears a story on my mind but i can't put the nudity on any place of my story,  but generally i like them both. There is peace on her face, and the enviroment is fine too but those jars-especially the baby in the jar- lets me feel confused, and the harmony is broken on my mind. As a result your imagine let me think and that is success and inspiration for me. Thank you.

I prefer the first version too, although dying plants and a bucket with the mop are a nice touch. Maybe a nice summer sky for a  contrast?

I like the second, more finished, version.  Love your stuff.  I see the Mobius connection too....

Question: begemott, with this painting, are you trying to address the topic of Post-Abortion Syndrome (PAS)? It _seems_ like the painting would lend itself to that interpretation: the woman on the sofa resting up after the procedure, her (former) child in the glass jar above (hanging over?) her head, information on what she has actually done on the floor, the woman herself now sad and exposed.

I would certainly appreciate any insight you have.

The 'information on the floor' looks more like it has a dinosaur or something in the book. Maybe it's a children's book and she had a miscarriage? Miscarriage would be my guess especially in the first pic since the baby is more centrally located. Also in the first version the baby is a lot farther along developmentally. In real abortions the baby is generally not in one piece when it comes out. Though I know that can just be up to artistic interpretation.
In this second version it's more or less just among the other jars. So another idea is she just likes keeping animals in jars and somehow got a fetus, and the book on the floor is a general book about fauna.

Wow, no one wants to address the elephant(s) in the room...O.K., I'll say it, I like the tits in the second one...perfect shape, perfect lighting, can report me to fact, you'd be doing me a favor, I've been trying to close my account for years, but they need to send something to the email address they have on their records to verify it's me, but I don't have that one, anymore, and they won't answer my emails!! Anyway, you're a brilliant artist, I'll say that much, and I hate to treat you with a lack of respect...but I really do like the tits in the second one, for what it's worth...thanks,

Very nicely done =]

This version is more perturbing than the first one to me. I see a continuation of a life story, but a melancholic, almost paralized life. Resignation, loneliness, sadness. The plants are whitered as life seems to be doing. That's what I see. I like both versions, seems like they need each other to tell a story.
NeriSiren Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013
I like both versions. The brighter one has a more cheerfully peaceful feel, while the second version has a more quiet, almost melancholy peaceful feel, and the colors look more realistic. Both scenes look like they take place in the afternoon; the first version early-afternoon, while the second is later, closer to evening. The woman in the first version seems to be resting after a long, possibly busy day, and there might still be lots of people and noise coming from outside. In the second version, it seems like the woman could've been spending a quiet day inside, reading (I see the book on the floor), watching TV, etc. I imagine less noise going on outside as people head home, just a few stragglers sticking around at the beach (I imagine this place is near the beach because of the palm tree in the second version).

Either way, I feel like I'd love to visit or live in this place :)

Yes, the first version is better. I can tell what the point is in that version. In this version, the point is well hidden.

The perspective seems wrong. The floor boards, and all lines parallel to them, should have a single vanishing point, which should lie on the horizon.
Genie-DG Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I like the old one better. That there are only jars in the window and nothing else at all. Also that it's light outside even though it kind of a gloomy picture. Normally I don't I think nakedness is beautiful but this time I like it better with all of her covered under a blanket
All in all a really nice picture, little disturbing thoughtful picture

I like the first one too, I find this one a little more moody more solum. Very different feelings the two of them. I like the freshness and the lighting in the other on the baby and the girl. Both are amazing pieces, just different. The story seems stronger in the other one. Perhaps less is more in this instance for me.
I am in awe of your work.

I love both versions! They are incredible!
gergelypolonkai Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013
Although this one is definitely more clear, the style of the other one is more impressive to me. Nice work, though :)
makeo Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013
I prefer the first one
phiq Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012
That can't be a comfortable position! Love those jars though, and the soft, direct light.

Eyestrain Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012
The amount of detail in this one makes it a little more subtle. Still very beautiful, even if the other reads more obviously.

It's actually kinda hard to tell that it's a painting. o.O
JinnyMcG Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2012

Well, the first version was more painterly, don't you think? And the light seems more dramatic. So overall, I would say it has more character and impact.

This version is more detailed and realistic ~ it really is beautiful. You did a great job!

I'm really loving the lighting. . .

This is so gorgeous. And such an emotive piece, well done.

I prefer this one personally, I like the subtle colors and better detail in this piece.
