The Glazier's Daughter by barbarasobczynska The Glazier's Daughter by barbarasobczynska
the idea was haunting me for quite a while, the thought of "the Glazier's Daughter", even though i couldn't decide whether it could be a a kind of a twist on Pinocchio's story, only with a lonesome glazier creating a daughter made of glass instead of Gepetto making a son of wood, or whether it would be a story about a glazier's daughter who can turn transparent and glass-like every once in a while,
basically that was the idea that made me draw the little picture

Mistook it for Glacier's child first, and thought she has to be made of ice. The glacier doesn't want to let her go, and she goes and melts. Sad.

But beautiful picture.

It's actually a fascinating notion. Pinocchio presumably moved with blue fairy magic pushing his limb segments around the pin joints that puppets are made with. Glass is a curious substance, almost a crystal, almost a liquid, but not properly either. She is also very ghost like and instantly glamorous. It's an idea that really does deserve some development. Romantic, and whimsical and yet anchored in the everyday labors and livelihoods of the artisans. Very Basia.

Its a beautiful piece, as is your story that goes with it! I love how she is peaking over her fathers shoulder, I'd love to read a book about the little glass girl!

Ha, przypomniało mi się, jak w dzieciństwie kiedy któreś z rodzeństwa
przechodziło przed telewizorem albo zasłaniało widok, ten kto oglądał
krzyczał: 'ojciec szklarz?!?' należało wtedy odpowiedzieć: 'chyba twój!'.
Ależ to był ubaw. (ojciec też tak zagadywał :lol:)
Ach, rysunek także wspaniały :aww:

Very very beautiful. The colour scheme is so pretty.
This reminds me of my favourite film when I was little, "Glasblåsarens barn" (=The children of the glazier)

This is beautiful. That red dog was a great addition too. Breaks up the blue colors a bit.

Perhaps she is the result of his grief over a daughter he lost?
He carves this statue, then his tears bring it to life.

Oh so lovely!! Your art is so magical and it always tells a wonderful story... I personally like the pinnochio version as well. Maybe she and Pinnochio could be friends :)

There is a French 'expression'. If someone is standing in front of you while you are looking at something hence blocking your view, you can say "Your father is not a glazier or I'd know it."
Well in that case, her father IS a glazier!
Very nice composition. I like how the blues and browns-oranges are complemented each other.

Sounds like what my parents say to me... Apparently I make a better door than a window!

Oh I love this so much! Personally I prefer the first "pinocchio" version, but then, I have always had a soft spot for that sort of thing.
Did you change your style a little bit? It seems a little different than your previous pieces. Less detail, larger shapes etc. Its really good. I'm not sure if I didn't prefer the earlier one a little bit more, but on the other hand its quite refreshing like this.
Its great seeing some new stuff from you. :hug:
