I also love the sexy/somber expression on her face. Reminds me of the term "ennui." I never noticed the heart on her sleeve. I feel like there might be a double meaning there: Heart because it was a Valentine's Day release, or heart on her sleeve which means there was someone in her life at that time who might have taken advantage of her open heart. Beautiful.

kimmbaon 2012-Jun-05 at 10:24:11 GMT-5: When I see this painting all I think about is; "...On the back of a cartoon coaster
In the blue TV screen light
I drew a map of Canada
With your face sketched on it twice..."
How can I get a print of this painting??

oprateron 2011-Aug-21 at 21:40:03 GMT-5: Sorry, but you all seem to have missed the whole point of this painting. Please go back and view Both Sides 2 (from behind)... sign above the bar says "NO SMOKING"
JGuilberton 2011-Aug-19 at 08:50:09 GMT-5: What if I was having a cigarette with Joni Mitchell, what would I confide to her, were I unabashed, about this painting? (Well, 'to be or not to be..', right?) It's your most superb painting. I liked the one that you did from the seat of the taxi, looking out, which was brilliant. This one, though, shows a sensitivity to all that's sumptuous in Art, and penetrates, rather thoughtfully, the artists themselves. Yearning and solitude. All artists are under the influence of other great artists; how couldn't they be? But it takes one to know that the decision you took to tilt the table forward and distort the parabola of the glass of wine was right on. And the embers of orange in the blue, glowing remote in the obsurity but oh so alive, and the shadows of it in the eyes. The hand is so poignant, and fingers curled, just the little tips showing, brings a flood of emotion and remembrances of youth and tenderness. Yet above all, the appearance, for we must make one; the epiphany, not yet withered, defined: exactly alive.

carolwalkeron 2011-Feb-01 at 20:57:46 GMT-5: this is the most amazing painting,,,I could just look at it forever,,,captures a place I would love to be,,
CatsWhiskeron 2010-Dec-13 at 02:04:38 GMT-5: A wonderful painting. I would definitely place an order for a print if one became available.
dbregnardon 2010-Oct-24 at 06:11:59 GMT-5: Same for me: a good repro, or THE ORIGINAL (there are a lot of banks full of sleepy monney)....
Danaon 2010-Sep-28 at 11:57:12 GMT-5: I also love this painting and would love to purchase a print. If anyone can tell me how, that would be wonderful.
michaeltheretiredon 2009-Dec-09 at 10:27:43 GMT-5: My wife loves this painting and I'm trying (unsuccessfully) to obtain a print. I don't think I can afford the original. Any ideas.
