Of all your paintings that I am familiar with, I like this one the most! I dont know why exactly. Maybe someone else might know :D

The most beautiful and elegant set of ashes left by time in our memories after burning our past days and events ... Great!

iceaxe...:):)...I don't think anyone could explain it to you.. that is a big part of the magic and mystery of abstracts -at best it registers it's meaning a little differently with everyone and for some it strikes something deep, like a familiar smell or sound like being in the woods and hearing the wind in the trees, the sounds of a stream the stillness of a mountain. Of those things I am sure you are well acquainted. :):):):cool:

Caesar.. yes you have perceived the heart of this work... that is a great sharing of communication.. :):):cool:

We do indeed dear Gary. It is nice though in those all too rare moments when we find peace and reflect upon our blessings.
Another beautiful abstract!

Brilliantly conceived this theory of time you propose. I have not encountered a better theory of time, past, present, future, and their boundaries. Once before me I began to recognize the simplicity and beauty the theory holds. My Dad would have said, "If it was a snake, it would have bit you." Great discoveries are sometimes like that.

Maybe you can paint, "The Theory of Everything". But keep it short.

Wanted you guys to know I am still with you.

yeah me and brain hired one of those wing glider's so we could zoom around

into the corner's and dark hidden place's brain liked the tile effect even if we

nearly come a cropper swinging to and through to miss the wires I liked the

colour's as for abstract :eek: dunno all we could see was a big GZ what does

that mean :confused: :confused: :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

The organic and geometric really come together well in thi one Gary -- Bravo! Al

though I don't see the fire correlation I do like the piece and the use of windows... maybe windows of time? great piece though.

First off let me thank eighty :), PD :), Alkrazer :) and screenpainter :) I am glad you all liked this piece and left a comment. The "fires of time" idea came to me as I was reflecting on how as time progresses in our lives so much is "burned" away, some of the posturing and bravado of youth, and as pets, friends, and family pass away they leave their mark on our character.These fires gradually burn away leaving the central core - so the geometry imposed on the organic as Al pointed out. The greens and blues are the spirit of life left that while not as extravagantly lush and green and when young it is still present with a different kind of strength. I guess this is a bit complicated but it was the force behind this work.. thanks everyone for commenting.

PD good to see you back and checking in on us..
