If I may ask; is there any particular way you feel the painting has been influenced by your state of mind at the time of creation? Is it the almost complete insignificance of the person in the painting in contrast to the vivid and colourful world around the person?
No matter what, it's a very beautiful piece of work, and you can be proud of it. To me, it's very positive to give the world quality art like this - it enriches the collective human culture.
You are most generous in your praise. Thank you for your understanding.
I was very depressed and very lonely at conception. I missed a partner very dear to me with whom I had ended the relationship because I was insufficiently attracted to her but who otherwise would have been my soul mate. She wished no further contact. I sought solace in the geology of the northern coast of Cornwall in the UK, especially in the chemically/biologically weathered horizon of different metamorphic rocks.
The white figure is me as a ghost unable to make contact with the World of the living. Utterly alone and insignificant before the glories of nature.
You're welcome. And thanks for sharing your story. I can recognize some of it with and within myself, so it's comforting to know you're not totally alone with those kinds of thoughts.
On another note, I hope you're much better today. My guess is that you've come through this, since you talk about it in a past tense, and with seemingly clear hindsight. No matter what, you're always welcome to write me if you want or need someone to talk to.
