“I’m in love with people’s hands and the way they clench their fists and the way their fingertips lightly press down onto piano keys or thighs. Calloused fingers or dainty fingers. Hands writing poems or memos or parking tickets. Hands writing futures. To me, every crease on the palm is a love line.” — Mesogeios
wow, this quote kinda explains the way I feel about hands too.
It is amazing the number of talented hyperrealist artists out there. In this post, you can see another fine example: the work of Javier Arizabalo. The way he paints skin textures is just exquisite, and his lighting is beautiful in each composition.
My sister, who lives out of town, scanned my nephew’s hands and sent the picture to me. It was something so simple, but has so much beauty and meaning everytime I look at it.
when i let the water take me.
This group of photos must be taken as a set, but the top right one is an amazingly expressive hand picture which adds to this whole piece.
