Second attempt on this one: [link]
It was good practice, but I somehow prefer the first version more.

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.

This is really well done!!!!
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 =]
