La Boheme by Raipun La Boheme by Raipun
Finally found the time to finish my latest artwork. The vest and neclace seem to haven taken forever to finish!
The picture doesn't do the painting any justice though. The detail shot looks more natural and comes closer to reality.

Model: my youngest daughter, Marilyn.
Oil on canvas, size: 120 x 150 cm.

LOTS AND LOTS OF THANKS FOR SUGGESTING MY ARTWORK FOR A DAILY DEVIATION!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM SO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!

Phenomenal detail in the crochet and necklace. I am totally impressed with your skills and visions.

I would assume that painting on larger canvases is one of the keys to achieving such intricate detail.

Bravo!

I wrote the poemhunter website poem called
Marilyn, La Boheme and would ask you to
share this poem with your family.

MARILYN, LA BOHEME


Her life as carefree as her hair,
Two golden waterfalls,
She faces life as with a stare,
As if her eyes were walls...
A precious face, blue eyes, red lips,
Her pink skin soft to touch,
Enough to tingle fingertips
Of those who love her much...

Her life as carefree as her form,
In gossamer array,
That's scarce enough to keep her warm
When moon steals sun away...
Yet there she stands, content to shine,
With beauty all her own
And blessed would be her Valentine,
To whom her love was shown...

Her life as carefree as a flame
That shines eternally,
Sweet Marilyn is but her name,
Yet La Boheme to me...
And all my life I'll call to mind
That awesome smile she bears,
Thus in my soul, my heart, my mind,
Find mention in my prayers...

Her life as carefree as the lace
Upon her dainty neck,
That underlines her state of grace,
That lesser mortals check...
Belle of the ball, talk of the town,
Marilyn, La Boheme,
To me, a model of renown,
A dream within a dream...


Denis Martindale, copyright, January 2014.


The poem is based on the magnificent painting
by deviantart painter Raipun called 'La Boheme'.

You must be so proud of her, because she is very beautiful and I hope that she have some of your talent genes ... Also i think there are so many male artists who are very good at painting, but little number of female artists that there are good ... You lady, are proof that also woman can be a master in painting... Brilliant, amazing, breathtaking ... job !!! I am proud of the female type

it's kind of hard to believe that this is actually a painting and not just a picture, but I do believe that you are a master in painting, and it is possible to be that good to paint!
I adore your work, you broke all the records of capturing such perfect details, especially on the lace, I can see the smallest threads and the lighting and shadow of it!
just stunning, very stunning!
god protects you madam! :heart:
