Freakin love this Gary...The character, his features, the doodads and doodaas within the image are wild to say the least. Makes me think of how it would be trying to get to sleep after having diner with Tim Burton, Thomas Boatwright, Wassily Kandinsky and of course Alfred Gockel....
Very very cool!!!!
Check out "Alfred Gockel homage to kandinsky"..http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3137/2937746231_edf015e716.jpg Came to mind after seeing your painting.
Or I could have gone with...Who's the crazed dude with the cigar wearing the derby hat?
Take care friend,
Steve

I was not familiar with Alfred Gockel but looked him up, I feel like I just found my artistic brother!... love his colors, lines and lyrical abstract figures, and musical instruments, I will have to look at more of his work... so a BIG THANK YOU for that tip !..:cool::cool::cool::cool:

I can really see what you painted! Awesome! I didn't know it could be actually painted! .. I'm glad to see You don't have nightmares, but marvellous colorful transitions ...

Seems quite nightmare-ish to me, but maybe that says more about my mindset :)

I see a large insect creature with 3 big, sharp, blooded teeth rising through a bed (viewed from above) to engulf and devour the dreamer.

I like it ;)

Go Van Winkle! A right Ripster ye are, laddie. . . LOL... thanks my friend there are qualities in this I like that softness that has crept in in a few of my recent works..


Lovely, lovely, lovely Gary! Lots of drifty dreamy stuff, and then those beautiful lines....... Hi Robyn, I was thinking about you and wondering how things are going , as I haven't seen any postings from you as of late. Hope your new acrylics are keeping you happy and busy and not visits to the MRI machine room...


I can really see what you painted! Awesome! I didn't know it could be actually painted! .. I'm glad to see You don't have nightmares, but marvellous colorful transitions ... Thanks Caesar, I frequently have these fragments of shapes and colors moving around just as I go to sleep, sometimes I can organize them and I try to remember them for future works, not always successful at that. They are a language with its own meanings , but in this work I was able to allow the process to work while at my computer... a lucid dreaming as it were...:cool::cool::):):) btw.... congrats to Vincenzo Nibali's impressive victory in the Tour de France..:):):)

Here's Gary in his retirement artist's hideaway on the Fringe, burning incense, listening to psychedelic music and engineering the next artistic paradigm leap. . .
