I am always drawn to faces in a painting. Who are they? Are they posing for the artist? What thoughts are racing through their mind as the artist urges them to be still? Or sometimes I wonder, are they real? Or did the artist dream them up? Is it a reflection of the artist themselves?
Which is why I find the paintings by Emily Martin (aka theblackapple on Etsy) so fascinating. There is a quietness about the girls in her paintings. There is no description needed, the eyes tell you a story...
Button Collector Print
The Quiet Room Print
The Pensive Wallpaper print brought a smile to my face! It is described as " After staring at the beautiful wallpaper for hours, she found herself a bit worried........". I can understand that feeling!
