Another foray into using ancient language symbols this one it T and stood for Teth in the ancient Phoencian alphabet precursor to Greek, Hebrew etc. . Kind of fun using the symbols for the basis of a current day work.. hope you enjoy it.:)

This looks like the parent of the Greek theta, that is the th, while the t is tau for Greek alphabeth (another phoenician-derived name).
I confirm I like the use of phonetics sign as grafical and pictorial element of paintings, especially on Your paintings. After all they must probably share the same mind harmonies than painting traits and brushstrokes to have be used thus found beautiful I think.

Yes this is also theta (th) thanks Caesar for the little boost of support while I tramp down this artistic path for awhile...:cool::cool:

Hi Gary, This makes me think of how my parents used arithmetic really, even though this
was a beautiful alphabet symbol.
The numerical references were so different from the way I was taught, and later through research
I found that they were from Greek. I guess it goes back to their Celtic, Scottish and various
European backgrounds passed down before formal education.:p
Anyway, beautiful work again!

Man, dig them crazy midnight Cheerios. . . They have little toothpick supports so they don't collapse when they get soggy. In this time of global collapse, engineers are working overtime to design a more durable Cheerio. Well when you're fixing the world, you best start with what is at hand, and at the start of the day comes breakfast.

But seriously folks. . .

This is an interesting image. I think it has real potential as a concept for lots of different paintings. I really like the idea of symbols as a graphic shape to work with. Go man go!!!!!!

Gary....
I thought a Phoencian merchant ship was sinking of the coast
of Carthage and all the life perservers were already in the
water...it's every man for himself! What!...Alphabet...what do
we know about letters and writing?...were just sailors...Hey!...
move over!...That's where I was rowing!
Sorry Gary, you know me!
I like it, needs to be on somebody's
wall or in a gallery!
Take care friend,
Steve
