Thank you, Alexandra! To me she represents someone born with all the possible benefits of "society" denied her, and rather than be bothered by it, she relishes the freedom it brings her!

Thank you, Sharon!

Pueblo, CO - United States

I am so drawn to this painting. It fascinates me and appeals to me. The colors for one thing.... lots of diagonal lines for another, but put it all together and I love it, as do lots of other people judging by the number of comments. Instant v/f

Peri Craig replied:

Thank you SO very much, Lenore! Its one I really put heart and soul into.

Thank you, Everett, for featuring Magdalena in the group Politically Incorrect!

Concho - Snowflake, AZ - United States

Thank you! I really love texture! Even when I try for smooth, I end up with a tactile sensation! It also gives me the opportunity to work with unusual materials to apply and to remove paint, which keeps it always new and fresh.

Phoenix, AZ - United States

Hi Peri...love that impasto technique...it adds texture and life to a painting when you can see the artist's hand!

Concho - Snowflake, AZ - United States

@Sherry ~ Ah-HA! So you've been "possessed" by a painting too! LoL!

Concho - Snowflake, AZ - United States

Thank you, Chrisann, for featuring Magdalena Mujar de los Gitanas in the group Weekly FUN For ALL Mediums Inspiration!

Jacksonville, fl - United States

Your comment " she wouldn't wait" was adorable. It is funny how the paintings have their own personalities even before they are in the full glory onto the canvas. Still chuckling , I know what your saying.

Concho - Snowflake, AZ - United States

Thank you, Priya! I love deep rich textures. For me, to see is not just about vision, but about sensing the touch, the feel of a thing. Maybe because much of my life has been lived around cactus? Good survival skill! But I try to be honest about the feel of a thing as I look at it.

Bay Area, CA - United States

Such a pleasing color palette, and I really enjoy being able to see your brushwork...parts of the painting have an almost sculptural quality to them.

Concho - Snowflake, AZ - United States

Thank you, Sean! I was waiting for someone to notice that. Yes, while the lower part of the church is "grounded," it becomes less so as it rises up to the flat blue sky. A bit of inspiration from the movie "The Truman Show (Jim Carey)." I am now justifiably delighted!!! Thank you!!!!!

Wichita, KS - United States

Blasted enter key! I had more to say! It has a kind of surreal feel to it, like certain things are real, and others are just fictional, like day dreaming. V!

Wichita, KS - United States

Interesting how there is so much detail in everything, but the sky and the white building are just a flat color.

Storybrooke, ME - United States

Beautiful artwork Peri, and her story is a most interesting one. v/f/su

Thank you, Bob! I really appreciate your comments, and am very glad that you like it!

Concho - Snowflake, AZ - United States

Thank you, Jennifer! Its actually one of very few I've done that I can sit back and say I like. Generally its OTHER people's work and styles (yours, for instance!) that I prefer!

Concho - Snowflake, AZ - United States

Thank you, Ann! It was one of those wonderful "dream about it one night" pieces that just seemed to paint and unfold on its own! I feel blessed to have been holding the brush! Sounds wacky, but it was so strongly impressed on me in the dream that it just ... happened!

Washougal, Wa - United States

Pretty Painting!

Suffolk, VA - United States

I love the painting. Great details and colors. v

Peri, Fantastic painting and a wonderful story to go with it that had me captivated. I kept reading the story and scrolling back up to the painting to see what you were saying was in the painting. Your painting and story was that powerful. Great detail and a great use of various colors. Fantastic piece of art. VOTED

Peri Craig replied:

Thank you SOOOOO much, John! That is exactly what I was hoping to achieve! I love art that makes me work at it!

Hasselt - Belgium

Great painting and background story behind it, both compliment each other well.

Peri Craig replied:

Thank you, Philip! It really wrote and painted itself (my lower back and wrist would argue that, but it's true).

Warren, MI - United States

thank you for giving us a great discription on your art work. v

Peri Craig replied:

Thank you, Fay! Some of the symbolism I was aware of as I painted it, but some hit me afterwards, as I looked to see if I was finished.

Jacksonville, fl - United States

A lot of work and detail. love the colors and texture. It's a winner ! V/F

Peri Craig replied:

Thank you, Sherry! It actually WAS an awful lot of work! I woke up one morning and had this image of a woman in my mind. I tried to get the background done first, but she wouldn't wait, so SHE was the first thing painted, with all the rest filled in! NOT a method I recommend! LoL!

Washougal, WA - United States

Great Information to go with your painting... wonderfully painted and written! =) Voted

Peri Craig replied:

Thank you, Kathy! Her story seems to tell itself as I painted.

San Antonio, TX - United States

Thank you, Safa. I hope the memories it brings are good ones.

Title

Magdalena Mujar De Los Gitanas

Artist

Peri Craig

Medium

Painting - Acrylic On Canvas

Description

Literally, "Magdalena, Woman of the Gypsies" Magdalena wears a rambling rose on her left, signifying her virtue, and carries a token to ward off the evil eye in her right hand. A small Marian shrine is before the church, and the bell tower, unlike the rest of the painting, has no definite and sharp-edged perspective, rising to Heaven and the land of surreal visions.

Magdalena leaves the town. There are no doors open to her, and only one small window in an upper room, it's gauzy curtain reaching out as if to beckon her return.

The original painting, an 18 x 24" stretched canvas, is currently available for sale.
Obviously the price does not include shipping. PayPal is the preferred method of payment, and insures protections for both Buyer and Seller.
