The Ghost and the Spirit by MariaAragon64
The Ghost and the Spirit
A visual idea that got stuck in my head.  This is the first version, done on an 11" x 14" canvas.  Now, guess which one is the Spirit and which one is the Ghost?  (It's kind of an unfair trick question!)
Loading...
I have submitted one of my very recent paintings to the Maryland Art Place for their auction this Friday.  It is in Baltimore and the proceeds help them to fund their projects.  I will get half of the price of my painting if she sells.
www.mdartplace.org/news/press-…Best Beloved 2 Panel by MariaAragon64Best Beloved: 2nd version is the painting up for auction.
And this is the response I got:

----------
(id removed for the sake of their privacy) said the following:

"Hello!
I took a look at your gallery and I think you're doing a great job. It's not quite the DD skill level yet, but you are very close and I expect that with a bit of development, you'll definitely get to be featured eventually.
Have a good weekend."


----------
And this was my response to 'them':

"I honestly do not know what to say to that after some of the DDs I've seen here already.
Ah well.
Consider my work a lost cause and drop me off your radar.
Thanks."

I'm not going to bother with the folks who run this site.  I've seen some of the work that gets the DD nod and can only wonder what the criteria is, so I'm washing my hands of the whole endeavor and just doing what I want to do.
I've been a deviant for 7 years now by the way.

Someday maybe I will be honored with a DD.  Someday?  Surely something I've done will pass muster with someone and get submitted and chosen, right?
