I'll just repeat what I said elsewhere, that I like the flat, bright quality of her paintings. It makes me think of Eden before the Fall. "Bliss it was in that dawn to be alive." As for people getting old, it happens to everyone who lives long enough, and I can't understand why you young things are so shocked about it. On the other hand, I can't imagine what it must be like to have been born after 1980.

Like Grace says...it's loud and in your face. I like the colors she uses, it's very vibrant and alive. :)

I love the detail in her paintings too...I love looking at those like the ones posted here...I love the expression on everyone's face. Like, you know who they are. That might sound stupid, but I like to draw and yet can't really get the right specific expression/individually unique facial characteristics for people in my own drawn faces.

Like, to me, Mama Cass looks JUST like Mama Cass...and I mean, yes, most people who attempt to draw actual real life people ARE able to do this, but at the same time, as others have said, I love the almost cartoon-like but at the same time realistic style, with all the bright, flat colours. Love it.

Getting faces right is just about the most important thing in art. As someone once joked about newspaper artists, "With a few deft strokes of his pen, the cartoonist lets us know who each caricature represents by writing the person's name on their shirt." (I usually manage it by doing a lot of erasing and redrawing.)

In the painting she did of Woodstock, you can see that she put some little details in her outfit. And you can tell that it's her. You can tell who everyone is. She captures something else beyond a facial feature. She honestly captures that particular person's soul. She looks at people, and you can tell just how deeply she looks into others. It's really quite beautiful. That, to me, is also what makes her art beautiful.

No, though sometimes I think I have a shard of Grace lodged in my skull. :idea:

This is weird! I am who I say I am. My name is really is Susan Butcher. That is a photograph of me. I'm not Susan "Dogsled" Butcher. I'm not Grace Slick. I never tell lies.

That's OK, I'm not angry, and it's understandable when most people use aliases. But Rabbit seems wise beyond her years, and I suspect she may be a mouthpiece for a certain former rock star... sorry, Rabbit, only joking! :wink:
