a harsh laugh in the night... bright colors and gaiety splash in the dream.

This one really makes sense to me. It all fits. Bravo! One of your best. Love the ratio of geometry to organic shapes.

Yes! You look at it for a while, and there so many great areas to look at. Love the stars, they're a surprising edition, and they really work.

Gary, as you know I do not understand abstract, do you start these off with a plan in your mind or just go higgly piggly. I really feel I'm missing something by not understanding them and when I look at one sometimes I have a first impression another time I will think of words that come to mind while I'm look like this one today I thought spontainious (sp?) joy :)

Gary, so interesting and what a fantastic job, so much to look at there thanks dearest Pat always fun to have you comment.

That said I do take advantage of happy accidents and the ability in digital work to use layers and undo's until I get it right. Abstracts for me always have a basic origin from nature and I go for frequent walks with my dog and ideas and shapes come from that, and music. I guess for my work you could think of looking at nature thru a kaleidoscope, and I move size, and perspective around the elements until they build what I feel are pleasant and balanced colors, shapes and textures. I don't know if my explanations help but I did paint realistically for decades before I started experimenting with abstract form..although on this forum I have only presented the abstract.


Nice...I think one of your best efforts thanks so much Steve.

gxhpainter,
I hesitate to think that you attended this high spirited, merry
making (and not to mention effervescent!) festivity and forgot
to invite the rest of us. ;)

This spunky abstract is literally dancing with lively colors and
sassy energy as if in the mist of celebrating a painterly Marti
gras. A distinctive, creative well done piece! :D

gary, you've said it well in your answer to jean ... as soon as you mentioned the full moon, I went to the window, but could see only a halo of light illuminating the clouds ... I guess the puppy is a dog now and can go for walks? :)

Hi, I must have missed this one somehow. It has so much fun in it. All kind of things dancing around. Hope you know I was playing when I posted my twelve year old golden and her toys. I was just as I said saying that my dog would love to play with yours.
