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.

    Would you tell us about it?

      in short this was a girl who lost her father age 11 to cancer, now she is 15. I painted her portrait for her mother. She’s been through a lot and so has my daughter, as you personally know. I’m thinking about painting a series, Been-Thru-Trauma.

        My greatest appreciation I have for you all for the encouragement you give to others facing troubles in life. Stop with too much self-pity, if they can get through it all, so can we. In my thoughts and prayers often; thanks for sharing your art and the works of others as well as bringing emotions into reality before us in the process.

        thank you. I was actually also thinking about painting a Holocaust series. I’m not sure if that commemorates the victims or exploits them since they can’t speak for themselves whether they would want their portraits painted.

    Just a suggestion, presenting pictures of one or a very few in each picture, even a photograph, may tell the story best.. “The death of one person is a tragedy; of a million, a statistic.” I don’t recall the source of that saying. It may have been Dr. Eyechart Line, Zbigniev Brzensczxkgy.

      right. I was mainly planning for individual portraits. there are a few amazing photos of small groups in the Stroom Report, but it can definitely be more difficult to convey the same feeling with a mass of humanity.
