Different

I wouldn't leave you hanging on a Friday, even with a blog-break. Today's question!

I can't stop looking at this:





























It makes me feel uncomfortable and squirmy, but also hopeful. And it feels very familiar.

What does it make you think of?

Love,

I am embarrassed to admit this but it makes me think of Harry Potter. Because we just watched the third one, with the werewolf in it.

Little Red Riding Hood, for some reason.

And Vikings.

It's dark and scary to me. Makes me want to run.

It makes me think of a nightmare. Also of beheadings, because usually the axeman has a hood over his head like the one in the picture.

Ack! I'm so far behind on reading and commenting here, but I want to check in. I really couldn't come up with a thought on this, since I keep looking at it trying to figure out what exactly is supposed to be going on with the tied up dog legs and the guy's costume.

The winged helmet reminds of a Lord of the Rings character. And it looks like the rather large, tied up wolf thing wants to eat him. Sort of.

Sister --

It looks like that scene in Spirited Away.

Well and this is an instance where I wish I could piece together some semblence of worthy art critique, possibly commenting on the use of blank space or the interesting binding of the wolf's legs.

But it is the most interesting to me that you, on this blog, chose this artist, as John Bauer suffered from a lifetime of depression, loneliness and self-doubt, which he frequently articulated in his paintings.

Makes me think of the vampire and werewolf RPG. We are a family of nerds, I must admit.
