TOPIC: What color is a soul?

Re:What color is a soul? 9 Years, 5 Months ago  
mooany- doing your own is easy, it's other people that can be difficult, depends on how honest they are prepared to be with me.

I'm now quite choosy about who I work on and insist on having a chat with them first. Some people/places of course are so open you can see what they are right away, I usually go away and draw them anyway

I have a feeling this post is going to get really interesting if we all start putting our interpretaions up here, looking forward to it myself.

You are so right Karen,

This is an interesting topic. To me it can be a little scary depending on the planes you are traveling in this life.

I would love to feel certain enough about what my soul would look like artistically let alone be able to put it down in an image. I could write a poem perhaps. Do you put in an image what you want your soul to be or what it is? That requires a lot of honesty!

I wonder too if what we perceive as soul in someone we see is really their soul. As you say, some are seemingly very obvious, but then too you have to consider what so and what is our perception.

Ouch my brain cells are smacking each other. I think Mother Teresa's soul would be a lovely thing to see!

Karen,

I hadnt drawn in 20 years when I did this in a moment of serious contemplation. I call it Not Soul, and please excuse my lack of artistic ability!

That's really interesting! It reminds me of one of those artist's mannequins that you can put into different positions. Why did you call it Not Soul?

very brave of you, so pleased you picked up a pencil again, I could draw a dozen conclusions from that sketch, most of them very dark, but thats the way my mind works, I'm afraid- am interested in the real story behind it if you feel up to sharing?

This was drawn to depict some emotions of helplessness and what is is to be a woman going through breast cancer. With limited talent, I was trying to portray the physical and emotional limbo of what it was like. It was not a sadness, rather more pragmatic realization and acceptance. Drawing it was a positive thing!
