Waiting for Forever


I made you dinner that night. You didn't come home.
You never did.

rAm said...

Oh ... a menu hard to swallow

Une interprétation particulière et d'une grande sensibilité... Un message...
gros bisous

Ces said...

Beautiful, I hope you know that in all of blogland you create the most highly intellectual, mental art which happens to be absolutely beautiful. No curly, cutesy stuff here and yet your art is worth displaying for all to see and sharing because it speaks volumes! Hopefully the viewer has an open critical thinking mind for it to make sense. Have a lovely week dearest one.

Wau... parabéns menina, teus trabalhos estão ficando cada vez melhores... Gostei e sempre vou gostar da poética com a qual tu trabalhas... mais uma vez parabéns...

Mario said...

Always waiting... But, some day...

(great work)

Tammie Lee said...

incredibly powerful~

Valerianna said...

The words are intense, but the image made me chuckle and smile from ear to ear.

rAm said...

Oh, thanks for your explanation, but one thing I did not understand (?)
You expect that work, the plate with the bones?
or the connection, via phone to leave comments?

oh my comment was not funny, I was referring to you recipe (not the food, your personal recipe, I mean? :) ;)
Another issue, if someone left me with the food served, I would not dedicate even one picture or a word!!!!!!!!! :( ):
good week!!!!!! :)
All we are designed to be alone, be accompanied is the exception to the rule (.)

De Wilde said...

You are never alone.

Don't wait too long the magic is within you.

Your plate and cutlery is beautiful x

Maya said...

That is a beautiful design! I especially like the cutlery (I would buy something like that if they were a real spoon and a real fork). It would be a bit problematic to eat soup with that kind of spoon but it would be amazing to troll some friends with it. :) I love your art and as always, you make amazing pieces!

Lisa Graham Art said...

Aw...Mita...this makes me feel sad...such abandonment. How beautiful and sorrowful all at once.

Big big hugs Mita.

Anthropomorphica said...

Lakshmita, my dear sweet witch that's extraordinary. I love it dearly.

Miss Rosette Brune said...

what a nice idea
love the cutlery,

José A. López Picardo said...

wonderful!!!!!!!!!
The idea is great and I love the frame too
A big hug!

plantie_bee said...

wow is that watercolor?? really beautiful work!! how did you get it so symmetrical :O *jealous*

Little Ni Studio said...

This is really wonderful!!!! It fits your topic so well,and I love the combination of the watercolor,your designs, and the kraft paper surface. It is a great illustration/design!!!! ^_______^

rAm said...

Hey, let's see ...
from the first moment I saw the illustration I knew this was not food, is the spoon and fork!
do you understand now?
Sorry for my bad English

(deberé escribir en español)
Es probable que algunas personas se sientan molestas porque yo escribo mal el idioma inglés.
obviamente esta es otra de tus muy buenos post

Alandroide said...

How will you do to make art with the pain?

So fantastic, i love it :)

Andrew Finnie said...

Hey :) Creepy hand :)

see even Picasso was searching for what h ad been bled from him, better to have never been bled in the first place

cantireta said...

May I "steal" your beautiful drawing for a poem on my blog?

De Wilde said...

good morning x

rachel awes said...

i too feel the message through the piece
+ also...that photo of you is BEAUTIFUL.
xox

Psycho Cat said...

Did I tell you how inspiring your blog is? Beautiful :)

Rod MacGregor said...

Wow....fantastic!

rossichka said...

How sad!... The whole image (including the broken frame) leaves the bitter feeling of a devastating love or dream, or hope, or absence, or anger... The one who didn't come to have a dinner with you, will never know what he has missed! But you, beautiful Mita, put aside that plate, don't look at it anymore. Instead - take a breath, look around and... paint an open door for the One who is coming to you!:)xxx
Brilliant work! Its mood reminds me in a way of the last scenes of "The Great Expectations" movie...

Francisco Martins said...

I love how your mind works!
Love the art and the poem. Love your hair as well by the way :)

Hugs!!!!

IwoX said...

Amazing... It is beautiful Mita, beautiful!

prentje said...

... and I love your blog! You are a very talented girl....

encaracolada said...

So deep... A big hug and some hope to you

Purpletreebird said...

This is so moving. Sometimes the most beautiful work emerges from our darkest places. :) Beautiful.

Ana said...

This is the kind of dark beauty that I love and enjoy :)
Wonderful work, Mita!!

Ana said...

I think I wouldn't mind having those in my table if they were for real :P

donny* said...

This one's got some kick to it. Very powerful, lovely, intricate work.

Rabbit Town Animator said...

AAaaaaaaaaaw!!!!! The picture makes me really happy and the writing makes me kinda sad. A mix bag of emotions. Lovely, lovely piece! My type of dining utensils ;)

Sydney L. said...

wow. so dainty!
love the story behind it xxxx

renilde said...

You have been busy dear Mita and i love what i see, always fine and delicate, emotions and images woven together into beautiful work.
Many of us have been heartbroken and went through all the stages of despair and grief but already something beautiful is coming out of it. I wish for you that one day you look back at this work and period in your life and smile and see how it made you stronger. Yes we are all alone but we can connect with others and feel the great joy of that and go on and keep that joy with us forever. I'm sure somewhere in this wide world there is someone you can connect with again when time is there. big hug and thanks for your sweet comment xx

Andrew Finnie said...

heya ; it's not often I click for big on someone's avatar :) Happy Friday! (I know its only Thursday but I thought I would get in early)

see you

Don't forget Wallis!!! I wish I had his talent.

Ted Blackman said...

Oh, I like this one, Mita. All the information is right there in the bottom of the plate. But I wonder; why do you cook for someone who never comes home?

Is that a hint of a smile on your face while examining your latest creation? I want to see more of that smile.

Ted Blackman said...

Yeah, I clicked on your new avatar too. Nice shot. Nice hair.

Bye for now.

Andrew Finnie said...

:( sorry

Michaele Razi said...

Simply wonderful and beautiful. I love this! Just like all your work, there are so many layers of emotions and story-telling involved yet you make it seem so effortless. Lovely.

k.h.whitaker said...

oh my goodness!!! I really, really love this Mita! Your unicorn comment was very cute. A rhino, I never would have thought of that. So cleaver :)

Juan Pedro Quilon said...

simple and strong image.

Carolina said...

Eerie and beautiful, both illustration and photo - love it!

Krystal said...

it's you! beautiful!

Ignatz said...

thanks 1.
thanks 2.
thanks 3.
we can share our ghosts!

Wini said...

WOW, Mita this illustration is stunning!! I love the intricate detail of the fork and spoon and decorative border. And combined with the words...its very moving and melancholy. LOVE the photo of you as well! You look very contemplative.

Lluís Cadafalch said...

:) beautiful

Daniel Casares Román said...

Me encanta!

Ignatz said...

I like the changes! :)

Ignatz said...

Thanks 1
How could I not notice?
looks great!
thanks 2
It is a very old drawing
thanks 3
I agree.
you are too ☺
(few words, you know, grammar)

Ted Blackman said...

Wow, you're right, Dawn has disappeared. Looks like her blog has been removed, that's what I saw when I googled her name. Reminds me of early on when a blogger who used to comment a lot just quit, removed her follow avatars, too. At least Dawn didnt do that, so maybe she'll be back. That other blogger ended up on other sites, at least. hmmmmmm...

Ted Blackman said...

I miss her LMAO and ROTFL comments. A person who laughs that much will always be around, right?

ivanka k said...

Great piece and words so deep! You are too very beautiful!!!

Andrew Finnie said...

Heh yes today I am too. But I think that it will not last long :) See :) :)

Ahh the hair, I have only half changed it, the bottom half is different to the top - I cannot make up my mind :)

And today?

Today I hung from chandeliers for a while - but the candle wax kept dripping on me - people in some countries pay good money for that I hear!!!

I hope your day was good and the wax did not drip on you (but it's a good resist for water colours ...!)

see you - :)

Ces said...

Today is a very important day. I hope you spend it with great remembrance of your wonderful beautiful beloved mother. Thinking of you dearest Mita. Tsup!

Helena said...

It's so pretty. I think it has to be my new fave of yours!

De Wilde said...

You are the most beautiful of the mermaids x

Ram said...

Oh yeah, all right
Are you going to be in my dreams
Tonight?
I will continue with hearts, until 50
Much?
Happy Weekend to you too
Thanks:)

Aguilar Elliot said...

Vilt og vakkert said...

Heisann!

Marvellous undertones, Mita, and the contrast between the delicate, decorative flowers and unpleasant in the skeleton bones is fascinating.
Miss you, take care, hugs from me
