Painting, music, writing -- these are things humans do that reflect the world like imperfect mirrors. As self-portraits, as egos and even egoless we are still imperfect mirrors of the universe / YoniVerse. She has painted him serious, hand to chin thoughtful, silent, perhaps reclusive; is that what his music was though? Where is her painting of His Work? I'd like to see that, more, much more -- a whole series in fact. This could be the start of a great series of studies, of paintings all about Miles, which would teach her about herself and inspire her I think to dare new directions! This work is a great achievement but it is only a beginning, a necessity, a Euclidean proof, an exercise, for it shows that the subject has been mastered for getting at the inner context of the man -- but it lacks the output and input -- what we have is the thruput appearance. She worked hard to get that I believe but now she needs to work harder and dig deeper. She needs to state what the man had to work with and what he was able to accomplish with the tool he was, the self-portrait he was to music. That, she can well understand I think! Who else is qualified to paint it? I can think of no one else!! Go for it, Joni!! ~~c.gar
bozitoon 2011-Sep-12 at 05:24:04 GMT-5: Like all art, this is a self-portrait. Joni renders herself in animus blue midnight mystery,with starry highlights. It's a work, so there's a hand, like the hand signature in cave-paintings. She's honoring work. Work = Force * Distance in old physics, and here one can FEEL that the work is cerebral and cathectic; in fact, it is the driving cathexis that is the FORCE of Life that motivates the Death HONOR. Her Master is dying, or d3ad, and she is at the ROOT of the word HONOR, which is HONI, the Circle-Drawing Rain- Bringer of "The Dead Sea Scrolls Uncovered." In the old days, a CONE of stones was the way men were HONORED, and the virtue was one of the few means by which a man could raise his stature in society. But she has painted the pile of stones and cone falsely, alive. His eyes should be closed and his mouth open to show that his spirit has been fully released unto the World, imho. cigar

Rabon 2009-Sep-23 at 19:25:32 GMT-5: I think Miles would have been thinking 'what am I thinking?'...I think.
HankDon 2009-Jul-07 at 03:16:24 GMT-5: I really like this painting, although it's very portrait like. I just love it. And the wonderfully painted hand in the foreground, just fantastic.
