The mysterious world of MONICA CROESE

17.2.11

i search for the moon

In the beginning of this year i told you about new paintings i was working on. Here she is, a new goddess from the FERTILITY series. It was a bit of a struggle in the end, but i am so happy that i made her complete today.
Just like Caio i complain about the colours, because for real the blue is very bright, her hair and body has lots of colors, more than you can see on the screen. And i welcome all my new blogfriends......

nouvelles couleurs - vienna atelier said...

stupendo e intenso, pieno di significato, un po' una lupa capitolina... quella che ha allattato romole e remo, mi viene in mente questo guardando questo quadro, l'antica roma, l'ombelico del mondo, le donne, la maternitá... e tante altre cose profonde

beautiful and intense, full of meaning, a little 'a Capitoline she-wolf ... that nursed Romulus and Remus, I can think of this look at this picture, ancient Rome, the navel of the world, women, motherhood ... and much more profound

kiss my dear Momo Luna

Really impressive work! It appears quite mystic to me...
About the colors - may be you should try to take pictures outside and quite early in the morning.

Caio Fern said...

only now I realise this painting is a hot blonde with lots of boobs..... uuuhhhh... you know what I like , Monica ;)

I LOVE THIS WORK.

Two Tigers said...

This is a wonderful work, Monica! There is something primitive and wild to it, like she belongs in a Henri Rousseau painting!

Brian Sylvester said...

Monica,

I see a lot of power and strength her, but most of all, I see you painting again! The colors and your sense of light are excellent! Light is one of the hardest things to capture, and you have done it here.

I hope you have been well, and I wish you a very creative weekend.

xoxo,
Brian

Martine said...

ze is prachtig Monica..............

ik was niet op zoek naar de maan maar ze begeleidde me gisteravond een uur lang toen ik van het ene land naar het andere reed. Een heel speciaal gevoel is dat altijd.

Momo Luna said...

Wow, thanks dear Laura for your wonderful comment. :-) Yes, somehow you can't gauze her expression. Is she sad, or angry or.... I can relate to the she-wolf you mention.
I am happy you understand her depths.
Kisses my friend!

Momo Luna said...

Hi there Alexandre,
long time.... Nice to see you here.
Yes i love to paint or draw mysterious creatures. They're lurking inside, craving to become real. :-)
Yes, i will make some photo's during daylight. I was just so happy that i finished this painting, so i couldn't wait to make the post haha.
I now i'm check out your blog! :-D
Sweet greetz....

Momo Luna said...

LOL Caio! I thought you liked me, i am definitely NOT a hot blonde with lots of boobs haha. ;-P
You were the first one, besides me, to look at her. And thanks for the tips....
Kisses for you!

Momo Luna said...

@ Caio: oh and in oktober i am on an artmarket here in the city. I am a bit worried if i can show my ladies, not creating some turmoil. Because there boobs, not just two, but eight!!!
Well, if time is there i will tell about it.
More kisses....

Momo Luna said...

Thanks so much Gabriella, i like it --> primitive, wild lady. I love the work of Rousseau a lot!
Hugs and kisses for you sweet friend.

Momo Luna said...

Yes Brian, i am painting!!! That's also why i am not online so often.
Thanks for seeing the light, because i was focused on it for sure. I'm happy you like it!

I'm doing fine, thank you and i wish a great weekend for you and miss G. as well.
Kisses!

Momo Luna said...

Thank you for your kind comment Denise. It's always a pleasure to read your comments.
I wanted to make welknown icons more lively, more flesh and blood. :-)

A big hug for you also and a great weekend!

Momo Luna said...

Thank you Skizo, i always smile as i read your comment. I like it as you visit me.
Seet greetz!

Momo Luna said...

Hallo lieve Martine,
ja volle maan gisteren, een prachtige volle maan. Van welk land naar welk land reed je? Het klinkt magisch, ja het is altijd speciaal, maar helemaal als het volle maan is lijkt me.
Ik wens je een fijn weekend!

renilde said...

Zo mooi Monica, striking, you keep looking at her. There is something vulnerable but also determination, soft and stronge, very good work!x

Momo Luna said...

Hi Renilde,

dank je voor je lieve reactie en ik wens je een heel goed weekend!

Nevine said...

It's that look in her eyes, Monica. And I do love the brightness of the blue. ;-)

Great stuff...!

Bitch said...

Coming late with my comment.
Love your lady.
The sadness in her eyes.
It is like she has her own story to
tell..
Hugs from Monika

jbkrost said...

There ya are...
You've been missing, love the new painting....
she could handle a whole litter..
thanks for your words on my page

Dave King said...

That is one amazingly compelling image. Difficult to take your eyes off it, it reminds me of Chac Mool and of Mexican sculpture in general.

Leni said...

this is soo great! amazing and hipnotizing! congrats:*

DynamiteJ said...

wow this one is telling me something ! the expression is everything, this is deeply good :)

Beatriz said...

impresses me

Momo Luna said...

Yes, the look in her eyes tells stories dear Nevine. I am also very happy with the color of the background.
Tnx for your nice comment.

Thank you so very much Brad. I am happy you can see the layers in my work.:-)

Dank je wel lieve Yvette. Ik hoop dat het goed met je gaat.
Ja, de minnipops. Ik was ze helemaal vergeten, maar ik had (heb?) platen van ze en heb ze wel zien spelen. Ook de tijd van the Ex en de Rondo's enz..... Te gek dat ik ze dmv jouw post weer herontdek. :-)
Liefs en een knuffel!

Momo Luna said...

Hi dear Monika,
it's always nice to find your comments here. Yes, her eyes tells stories indeed. First i was surprised about the sadness in her eyes, but i love it a lot.
Hugs for your too. :-)

Hi there JB! Thank you for missing me, that's so nice.
My words on your page are from the heart. I am a fan, you know..... :-)
Sweet greetz!

Hello Dave,
it's wonderful you mention Mexican sculpture because the mexican goddesses are also an inspiration for me. :-)
I don't know Chac Mool, so i'm gonna google. It's always good to learn new things.
Thank you!

Momo Luna said...

Oh wow! Thanks again Dave for pointing out the Chac mool. Now i'm inspired to paint my ownn Chac Mool as well. :-D

Momo Luna said...

Thank you so very much Leni. I really am happy that you like my work.

Hello Dynamite J and welcome. I love it: deeply good. Thank you. It always makes me happy as the viewer sees beyond the first impression. :-)

Hi Beatriz and a welcome for you too. Tnx for your nice comment.....
