The One that Got Away-Wordless Wednesday

The Dilemma painted by Andrew Brandmeyer

 This can't be a wordless Wednesday because I have something to say. 

My son painted this for his one person art show. I stood in front of it for a long time wishing I had more money. I really wanted to bring this home with me. It would have been perfect hanging in my writing office. There are so many dimensions to it besides the art techniques--which are amazing.

As I look at it I want to know who is behind that red curtain and why? Why is she so much more upset than he is? Does he know she's upset? Is he trying to find an answer in a book? Do these problems happen often and is that why there are tabs marking possible solutions in the book? 

And what about those geese flying through the room? Are they real or just a symptom of reoccurring problems these two have?

Andy, my son has a talent telling a story through his chosen medium.  I know where the painting is going and I'm happy. It's going where it will be appreciated. Meanwhile I am saving my money for the next great painting that grips me the way this one does.

  1. You are right! I love it! Talk about a story! Maybe even a novel.
    You should be proud of your young man.
    Thanks for the heads-up!!!

  2. Thanks for checking it out, Patti, I knew you'd love it. :)

  3. Darlin, your son is a product of you and having know you since forever says alot. I think and feel and see like both of you do and tends to confuse outsiders who cannot see it that way. We are very, very lucky! And maybe frustrating to some of us around us. haha
    Oh well...love us or...
