well!!

Hillel

Is that as in "well done!!!" or just "well!!!" the way Jack Benny used to say it?

karen

As usual your implacable x-rayed way of describing the truth of long time relationships gives full meaning to this work; it is a bitter and merciless psychological analysis of this couple, her personality firmly imposed over his unstable and shattered figure. Their spaces, clearly separated, could be cut with a knife, nothing would keep them together but the sofa, and time.
I was just wondering about through Artprocess, and discovered this comment on your work, “well”; and thought is this the best word to describe this painting?. I would ask Anne to continue the comment if she has time, this web is meant for that, and I’m also interested “well what?”.

JP

Poor Joe... I know the feeling.

Don't know what you mean john-paul....

Hillel

Karen, you got it in one. Without going into who the people are, they're gone from this world now, you're observations are pretty much right on the mark. You've conveyed it much better verbally than I could have. Quite a few times I"ve rejected offers to sell this painting because of its personal significance to Donna and myself.
And JP obviously I know what you mean however you're full of shite and I know you say it in jest, don't forget I've met Semina, however a few ales in me, and speakin' with the lads I'd be jokin' likewise.
Now howzabaout it Anne.... "well?"...

Anne

I can't remember making this comment (been moving house, mind elsewhere.)
If it was me,sorry, I can't remember.

Anne

On reflection, the above comment is inadequate. I think I meant "Well, what can you say!" The thing that goes through my head is "bad day on the Planet." A touch of the werewolves. Somebody feeling rough. I find it amusing really.
