On the Easel: Phobetor



It is really difficult to photograph these dark paintings in various stages. I am afraid to take it out to shoot because it freaks out my neighbors. The paintings, I mean. Not for everyone, I get it, people.

But I am really excited about where this is going and you can get the general gist from a less than optimal image. Looking for moths now, that will be emerging from the cocoons.....is it synergy, or something more sinister?

Phobetor's evolution is intriguing and captivating. Bring on the moths! Great work Tracey. :)

I love how the muzzle of the donkey/burro [sorry not up on my equine identification]attracts our gaze immediatly. Then I'm thinking, "aah, cute donkey..." and I start looking up and become more uncomfortable as my eyes goes past the eyes and discover the horrified tarsier latching on and as my gaze finally widens I'm really unsettled by the cocoons surrounding them. Okay...long story short. I'mma likin' it a lot!

I love everything about this! That little Lemur is intense. The cocoons and grass make it even more "other worldly". Can I please take my Summer Vacation in your brain???

I sometimes get that feeling with my neighbours, but I guess they are used to it by now! Liking the donkey:o)
