The Goblin queen

Uncategorized

“A goblin is a legendary evil or mischievous grotesque dwarf-like daemon or monster that appeared in European stories and accounts during the Middle Ages. They are ascribed various (sometimes conflicting) abilities, temperaments and appearances. They are usually small, sometimes only a few inches tall, sometimes the size of a dwarf, and have magical abilities; they are greedy, especially for gold and jewelry.”

I painted today aquarelle self-portraits.

My husband gave me a nickname “goblin” few years ago when I was hunched over my laptop, knees curled up right under my chin while watching something silly from telly. He told that I looked like a goblin. Later on he was convinced about my holy “gobliness” when I refused sharing my popcorn at the cinema, the times when he saw me painting on a floor in that very same hunching position and growling grumpy when disturbed…

Ever since I have accepted that part of my personality.

These paintings are self inspirited. I am sort of studying my own behavior when I am drawing my feelings and imagining how they might look like.
I picked out couple of facial expressions/moods from sketchbook and turned them into colorful paintings.
