love the abstracted essence of emotion v

Arjun L Sen replied:

That is superbly and precisly described. Thank you very much for that outstanding comment, Carl. Thanks for vote!

...I deliberately wrote that piece above focusing on the damage men do to themselves through patriarchy. The damage they do to women is obvious and doesn't need pointing out here, but subtler is the point that men injure themselves and men, from the Arabia to Arkansas, from Alaska to Australia, need to come up with true partnership and give up patriarchy.

Very engaging, Arjun~ FV

Thanks, Anand, great comment !

I always love when a minimum of lines can say so much. Wonderful sketch and evocative image, Arjun vf

Arjun, this is an amazing piece, the description is fantastic and so is the depiction of Maggi in this simply stunning piece. You are right Love is eternal. Instant F/V

Thank you, Ana Maria, for lovely comment! :)))

Dear Vivian - I'm really glad to meet you, too. I was recommended to take a look at your pictures and I just love the fine and elegant line work in such a big collection of drawings. :)

Arjun. Your drawings amaze me, but reading your accompanying texts puts them into focus even more.

Arjun L Sen replied:

Thanks, Rochelle. I'm glad you like the write up. I've thought about that one for some time!

Thanks so much, Xueling, your work is rich, hihgly skilled and inspired. You are a superior artist!

Fascinating drawing expression, wonderfully done, Arjun! I really appreciate your visiting and leaving a nice feedback on my work, thank you:-)!

Judy, thank you for your positive reaction to my drawing. Also, I like your dog in your icon-picture - he looks really sweet!

A stron image with only a few lines...That alone is wonderful, but your story is also quite moving. Faith, yes I do believe and Mary Magdalene is one of my personal heros...Great job! fv vote

Anand, you remain always a great encouragement to me, and your experience and skill is behind all your observations. Thank you.

Lenore, thanks for that comment. It's really important to me to know that someone UNDERSTANDS the thoughts behind it because I've had thoughts like these in some form or another for a very long time. That's why this picture, although technically one of the simplest I've done, has also the most feeling in it from a personal point of view. I do believe that patriarchy has been disastrous and in a man's world, women who've made it to the top tend to be the ones who've played the man's game better than the men, not women who brought a real feminine perspective to world affairs. This is also true in offices and boardrooms.

Powerful lines,Wonderful sketch----------------Anand

I just dicveredthisisyrt another one of the kind comments I failed to acknowledge, so sorry Anand bhai

This is an incredible work! It is so expressive and heartfelt! Your explanation/description is intelligent and empathetic. Wonderful!~vote & fave.

Arjun L Sen replied:

Thanks!! :))

Thank you, Helena.

Very good !!!

I've posted a long explanation of the ideas behind this painting that inspired me to do it. I guess it makes me a sort of Christian at heartr without being able to maintain my belief in God, and a feminist despite my being as clumsily and incompetently male as any man you could meet.
