beneath the bridge by dholms beneath the bridge by dholms
this is one i've been waiting a while to submit,...
the picture in the foreground is from a photo
taken by a fellow deviant,...i've sent 'them' a
note to make sure it's ok for me to have used
it in my painting,...i still haven't heard from
'them',...i guess if it's not ok i'll just have to
delete it from my gallery.

I LOVE the focal point of this and immediately after viewing the foreground my eye was drawn to your daughter. Beautiful colors and composition on this!
dholms Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
thank you so much for this comment.
this was/is a pretty special piece for various reasons.
incidentally, how did you know that was my daughter?
it's not mentioned in my description.
omg. you're psychic????

Empath yes...psychic no LOL Unless you count the few dreams I've had that came true ;) did mention it toward the bottom comments. I'm just very observant.

Yugan Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2006
absolutely beautiful. + fav!
dholms Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
hey. thanks so much for that. can't believe anyone still finds this one.
GrueneWolken Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2006
This is very beautiful. I love how her pose and
the warm colours
create this warm sense of melancholy
autumn sadness?

hey~ I have a question - I noticed that you
featured something today and that you're
a gallery director
do you accept DD suggestions for trad. art?

the other admins are so busy, some don't
even accept new suggestions before the
end of the year

so i was wondering..
can i send some to you?

dholms Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
hey. i'm really sorry for this late reply. first, thank you so much for the comment on my work. i appreciate that.
secondly, if you haven't already (yeah. i get THAT many. heh.), sure you can send me DD suggestions. i promise
i at least look at all of them. i can't always comment on them though. but go ahead. and thanks again.

Great job... :thumbsup:

jimmyjumbo Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2006
i love this, it reminds me of one of my own latest deviations... REALLY this is not a marketing scam just check it for a min
i guess that more of this sort compositions are to be seen in photos of other deviants
SecondhandSmiles Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2006
the colors and everything about this piece is telling me to fave it.
and that I will.
kimWilloughby Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2005   Photographer
this is so so gorgeous...i am a redhead too....(if you were to go in my gallery, under my favorites....the pic titled kw2...thats me).....this is GORGEOUS!!! and so affectionately done....its honoring i think....and amazing how you snuck your daughter into the you potrayed this neeta girl is almost haunting.....her hair blowing....her eyes closed....soft ivory skin glowing...... an amber glow in the whole piece....and this tiny figure wayyyyy in the background so far away, that the viewer is looking to get a better look, her arms behinde is haunting, leaving you wondering more....its beautiful., and it sticks with you. i love it. and by the way....your ENTIRE gallery is just unbelievable....i am just astounded at your talent, honestly. thank you so so much for sharing it with the would be a shame to never show it to anyone, so, thank you.
super-glue Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2005
look! its Neeta! [link] i like the extra design you've added to this on the left. this is very well done. have you still not gotten permission from her? lol.
dholms Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
you are EXACTLY right!
it took me awhile to get her attention to grant me permission for this!
i still have the note she finally sent me though!
she was one of my very first favorite deviants!
she's an angel!
and thank you so much!!

Been browsing through your gallery and must say that many of your pieces are really strong! So far this one is my favorite - great composition and colors

Holms, don't you dare delete's glorious. jesuschrist man, that is some seriously insane work.
littleredelf Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2003  Hobbyist Photographer
i love the muted rusty reds
the wisp of hair and lash
and the sprayed effect of the paintwork.
amazing how a few brush dabs
imply that figure just beyond.
something interesting about
those accenting white strokes in her hair.
dholms Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2003  Hobbyist General Artist
and one footnote to this submission.
the girl in the foreground is neeta.
funny really,...although this was submitted
quite awhile back,...i've only just recently
gotten her blessing to do it,...(and a polite
scolding for not waiting on her to give me
the 'go ahead',...heh.)
the ghostlike figure in the background is my

thanks again!
dholms Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2003  Hobbyist General Artist
i think that's one of the best and most intuitive comments
i've ever gotten.
thank you so much.
showna Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2003  Professional Photographer
After looking through your entire gallery.. this has to be my favorite piece by you... because it reminds me of myself, esspecially right now in this point in my life... You need to sell prints of your work.. I'd be getting this one and probably one of your "Crow" pieces..
underln Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2003
Great compostion, I love how her face is only partially in the picture. The color/texture is so soft. It's great how she's kind of shying away from the viewer. The hair blowing in her face is nice too. It's all so soft and warm

another beautiful portrait :) (Smile)
memmin Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2002
The colors are beautiful! Really this is very awesome! The painting is superb and lovely! Just wonderful!
anon-y-mouse Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2002
this is beautiful

and the combination with the photograph-girl is lovely

did you paint the photo, or is it manipulated in (looks like painted, in which case, there usually isn't problems, unless you traced rihgt over top, but that's kind of hard with paints)

anyway, i REALLY like the colours and the entire piece Hug
andros-my-muse Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2002
shame if you have to delete it. 's pretty.
infinitybreeze Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2002
It's splendid alone, but when you consider the female looks like Tori Amos, it's splendid x2. Great work.
