silk banners wave, the spires of the fortress shine in the distance, the heat of the desert bakes..:):)

I feel as if I've just bitten into one of my favorites chocolate bars "Peppermint Patty" and here it comes...
I am standing on a huge sand dune....barefeet.....the warm mind blowing my hair gently in the wind.....and suddenly I am lifted effortlessly to an oasis nearby with beautiful men carrying low cal milkshakes and french fries.:eek:
Whew Gary...you need a warning label with your paintings...:D:p:p:p

This gives me Hope. . . and I'm looking around for Crosby as well. . .

Nice abstract. I think you have pushed closer to a regular scene, only using your abstracting chops. I think it's to good effect. Fills the space nicely. . . indeed it feels full and like there is yet a lot more off the canvas if one only pulls back or turn. Not a lot of abstracts do that, of the ones I've seen.

So it's a very interesting experience to see more outside the canvas using your design as a visual language sort of unfolding in my head. It's a bit like a numeric sequence that once you get the "why" of the numbers, you can extrapolate far more of the sequence.

The sort cropping maintaining the upward angle is interesting in that it is above eye level slightly and so I am picturing who would be milling about below.

Very cool sense of place. Nice shapes.

Mr D Akey....Bing is over talking to Dorothy Lamour..:p. glad you like this... I seem to bounce around a bit in my subject and style.... from the thin air of hard edge abstractions to more "scenic" motifs like this one... but I appreciate your analysis of it ... many thanks ...quite a shift from "Tilt and Shift" that I did just prior to this...;);):D
