Hi Gary....
Love the colors....love the shapes, but I'll wait for someone else to give or guess at the meaning or message to this wonderful painting.....
But got to let you know...my imagination has already created images that my mind is convinced that I see within your offering.
Dig it!!!!
Take care friend,
Steve

It would certainly be a splendor for adorning the wall or niche behind the main altar of a modern church! I love it with all its colors, symbols and its sort of colored megalythic art simple and robust architecture.

Haha, easy as pie Dear Gary, it's clearly an offering to Bastet, the Egyptian Cat Goddess, and the snake obviously symbolizes the God Apep killed by the Cat Goddess :p Nice work by the way :cool:

Take care friend,
Steve and I quite image you have some very splendid images in mind! funny how once something resolves itself in a image in your mind it is hard as heck to let it go and see something else. I have found though that in different lights other graphic elements come out to play...and can change the nature of the painting quite a bit.


It would certainly be a splendor for adorning the wall or niche behind the main altar of a modern church! I love it with all its colors, symbols and its sort of colored megalythic art simple and robust architecture. the main shapes were really a nod to those ancient megalithic structures.. glad you like this Caesar.

Gary, I may be wrong, but I want to give advice of keeping a candy car with you as you enter a cave. A dimensional door has opened. Kind of reminds me of Hellboy.
Love it!

Could this be Jabba The Hut contemplating his navel? . . . the navel among the Huts is sort of like ESPN. . . So pass the chips and 2 bucks says it'll be an end run. . . Hut 1. . . Hut 42. . .

This is intriguing, Gary. It's got some interesting, almost theatrical things about it, which is probably what many priests would desire for mysterious ceremonies. I find the symmetrical geometry of it evocative as well. Certainly suggests different dimensions to me through your use of the warms and cools.

:cool::cool::cool:

Groovy find, Andrea! I love those kinds of paintings.
