My latest painting (self-portrait): “Empathy”


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Your empathy has given me an epiphany.

  2. abstraction, paradox, shot through with sincerity, and a hint of Da Vinci’s Lady with an Ermine. Kudos works for me!

      Thank you. It’s funny, I didn’t think of that Da Vinci at all but I see what you mean. I have three dogs at home (Boston Terrier, Pekingese mix, Pomeranian) which I got from rescues over time to help mediate our problems at home because dogs are calming. Every time I look at my Pomeranian, I’m just slightly cheered.

    You have a pet or pets that can see, diagnose, and solve problems, physical and emotional.

  4. This is nicely expressive. It makes me wonder what else is going on that I can’t see, which is one of my criteria for a good painting. I didn’t realize you painted, and I’d like to see more of your own work featured on your site.
