working a mix of organic and geometric ( civilized ) spring has sprung here and loving the plum blossoms and blues in the sky...

And abstractionist's view of King of the Blue Meanies from Yellow Submarine perhaps. WWGD = What would Gainsborough do?

Other than that image I have from this, I think this is a really spiffy painting. I love all the brushwork and the division of the canvas. But that crown shape makes me think "head & crown". . . and all the associated abstract shapes within lining up from my personal template.

Anyway, it's a really great job of painting. I get the freshness of a clear day at the ocean. The colors are great for a day at the beach or drive along the coast.

Edit: Just had a follow up thought -- my mind was reaching for the connection to Poseidon of course. . . I knew there were some dots that weren't connecting. B. Final answer. Poseidon. . . and Yeah. I SOOOO want to be a millionaire. . . but I digress. . .

Hi Gary, I didn't have a chance to look out my window today....
This is obviously images of the outdoors being reflected off my infinity pool onto a mirror I have on my polished oak wall paneling in the dining room at my retreat overlooking the lake....It was a beautiful and bright day, and my trees and flowers were blooming...'I wish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nice one friend....
Like it..take care,
Steve

Absolutely wonderful as for design and colors in particular. I also see a lot of human by-products, marvellously colorful garbage if You wish, which would require recycling. Am I wrong in my interpretative impression?

The sense of the shore and the water is very strong as is the brown earth suddenly bursting with bloom. Very nice and I am glad that your spring has finally sprung!

D Akey I am surprised at you !! :rolleyes::rolleyes: it is SOOO easy to be a millionaire these days, all you have to do is take $500,000.00 and invest it in the stock market...:cool::cool::cool: that's what it did :rolleyes::rolleyes:...NOT!

Steve I would sure like to visit that lakeside retreat... it sounds like an excellent artist's retreat!...


Spring flowers breaking through, Gary, great colours and motion thanks jean.. I am becoming a fan of spring!.

Am I wrong in my interpretative impression? Caesar, I think not I am always amazed at walking around even outdoors and catching glimpses of bright non natural colors from trash etc left behind... like seeing the sky divided by the lines of power... and communication ( power and phone lines :) )


The sense of the shore and the water is very strong as is the brown earth suddenly bursting with bloom. Very nice and I am glad that your spring has finally sprung! thank you very much Marilyn..:):)

Wonderful colors and contrast: Nature has exploded:) thanks silvy..I was doing a take on the crashing wave..


This is very intriguing. I like your choice of colors here Gary. Very bold, surrealized sea.......... Thanks Tony, like I mentioned in my comment to silvy, I was trying to integrate the crashing tumult of the ocean with all its stuff bobbing around and the geometry of the pier and man made inlet... a metaphor for the wild artist and mathematician , left and right brain.. etc.



Very unusual, it's got me looking! :D thanks hildee for stopping by and leaving a comment. I hope you are intrigued by this..
