Bruce Combs 24 Sep 2010

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STEFANI! And what a wondrous tribute! Anneke just gets better and better! And I think this is the best of all her previous excellent paintings. What a lovely child, his love equaled by the bigger. Am I dreaming? Anneke’s paintings, almost magically, often do that to -- no! FOR me. And so is it this time! Surely I am not the only mesmerized viewer. Isn’t the lovely dog proudly feeling a parental kind of love and, thus, that special role of wisdom and teacher by appropriate conduct in comradeship, as well as a being a gentle protector? How easy it is to identify with both of them and their respective roles in this beautiful relationship. Isn’t being in both roles a dreamy role of each of us? To have such a faithful companion and protector from loneliness and other unhappy emotions as well as performing that role ourselves. And I think (obviously speaking from my own experience and wishes) that it may well be a major feature of our special, human-like relationship we grown-ups often feel with our pets. What a wonderful birthday gift for Stefani! Anneke has such a great and growing ability to depict in her art -- to remind us of -- such situations of emotion so commonly human that we may take them for granted and forget to be grateful for such beauty in life, in our own lives. And doesn’t this particular painting create that reminder for viewers. Doing so it also reminds me of the great American artist, Norman Rockwell, only recently becoming recognized by art critics for his marvelous artistic skills and important contribution to museum-class Art! What a great success Mr. Rockwell achieved! A renowned critic of art may describe it as “accomplished EVEN THOUGH he was also highly appreciated for creating covers of a VERY POPULAR magazine that was enjoyed weekly by most everybody.” And, I believe, so do many of Anneke’s paintings show that ability. AND what’s more, many of them, as this one for Stefani, are unique, self-giving honors. Congratulations, Stefani, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Peace, etc., Bruce

Artist Reply: What a wonderful review you have written, Bruce! So true, what you say about the mutual love and care! Children and pets are really beautiful subjects to paint, they are both moving viewer and painter. I remember I read a book when I was a child, it was called The little Lord 'something', I don't remember the name and hardly the story. But I do remember there was a picture of a little boy with a huge dog and they both loved each other very much. Isn't it remarkable how things settle in one's mind? I was thinking of it while painting. I wonder if Rockwell created the cover of the book (maybe Google can help):)) I'm a real fan of his work, he is the greatest in that style! I'm a true fan of your comments too, my friend! Thank you so much!! :D
