Deliciously tactile - a visual delight!
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. (Mark Twain)
Marilyn Anne, thank you!... so happy that your a fan!...
Rowena, thank you always nice to get such a positive feedback from your talented eye..
Gary, I definitely belong to the species who looks closely and takes time to explore a painting - and your paintings are sooo worth looking at
"Scattered Bones" is no exception ~ I can see microorganisms, eyes/face, landscapes, horizons, even the whole globe (bottom right corner) ... it's just wonderful and interesting!
as Rowena said, a visual delight

"It's a living growing mutating art sculpture painting synthesis." (quote screenpainter)
This also has the arrangement and feel of a still life, and as with all still lifes, there's nothing still in it, and it's all life :-)
If there could be a genre called "underwater still life," this would be a representative work ...
I love this sort of paleonthological painting where You seem to have collected all left part of many glorious past times ...
Panta rei (everything flows)!
MSIE...it is a thrill to have someone dig into my paintings and find the layers and hidden treasures!.... ... this particular work had many such features and in doing it I stumbled on a couple of new tricks... so it was one that made me happy .... most unlike "Favorite Things" which was a struggle from start to finish.. you would think that after 50 years of painting things would flow a lot easier.....
Pete... thanks.. it does have that quality of arrangement and studied form but also plays with the light like the shimmering light under water..
Caesar... thanks mate... I do seem to get into a historical mindset from time to time. like compressing 3,000 years into a single moment..
