Love it Gary! The colours and textures are great, and my mind keeps straining trying to make sense of what might be happening there.

Nothing like a good sci-fi, is there??

You had to have been watching "The Dark Crystal" Very cool interpretation. Brian Froud is an icon for this kind of fantasy. Either that or you're getting ready for Thanksgiving and have the bird in your crosshairs. After all, what's left after Halloween, eh? Fun image, Gary.

It could be also a cake garnish, dear Gary. I like Your sweet, colorful painting both visually and also as it seems to taste!

Thanks for your generous comment on this...the fact that the subject is somewhat unclear was a little disappointing to me but I was so attached to that v shape I just created the painting around it. funny so sometimes a particular part of a painting just seems to control everything, and it is almost impossible for me to paint over it... sigh..... :rolleyes::cool:

Thanks DAkey I was a fan of that movie... lots of interesting characters and landscapes..

Wow, what a wonderful tribute to the GREAT MAZINGER, here's a scaled down version (the bigger one was to large to upload :p). BRAVO and such a great choice of colors and impression of movement you got there :cool:

LOL thanks Steve for you enthusiasm for this. Do you really put these on your wall? :D??? very cool if you do!.As matter of fact I do, about two hundred paintings...favorites from your gallery and others from the forum....and of course mine as well. They are playing on a flatscreen in my dining room from a media player, it's like my own little art gallery.....Plus much more pleasant then watching TV while eating dinner....And yes, there is music as well!
Thanks Gary......Take care,
Steve

Or was it rather Goldrake, dear Andrea? Actually I'm older than You, so it all started with him, the Japanese cartoons I mean, You know ...

Since I like food and what's around it, also culturally, dear Gary, finding Your painting also tastful, to move also my papillae imagination, thus adding anothe sense to sight, tactile impressions (textures) and even a sort of music, was a truly compliment. ;)

Steve Steve that is a very cool idea. my TV will also show images and it does if you have it on DVD and are not watching anything it starts showing beautiful pictures, I know I could put art on it and have a really nice show going but due to inherent laziness I haven't figured out how to do it yet. but you have given me some motivation...:cool::cool:

Very colourful and vibrant.

Wish I knew how you paint your stuff - always lots to look at. thanks hildee! my processes is a bit complex as I work from AR to Photoshop and back over and over, sometimes I have a definite idea in mind sometimes I just keep pushing the paint and layers and blending modes around until something pops and then I work to refine and balance it chromatically, tonally and compositionally... I know that sounds a bit vague but how I get to each image is about the process and music I listen to or what inspired me on my last walk..:):):cool::cool:

Hi Gary, This also reminds me of The Mummy 2 when they are flying above the desert, or The Road Warrior where the tall thin man is flying above. Love it.:cool:

Gary, now that I've looked at this again and again, I can see a piece of quartz split in two with the crystal flower unfolding - atop a mountain of minerals - some precious gems hiding there.:cool::cool:

Go back to your few creative abstract paintings, they are great visual again for me. I especially like this one and the color palette. Interesting how you titled it. I saw the "transformer villain" causing the city a destructive scene and set fire everywhere during a brightful blue sky day :)

I do like your colors and textures, and composition too :)

Thanks to hildee's question and your reply, I too grasp your process, and feel a kinship to it as it resembles my process (edit: minus the Photoshop bit, lol, I don't have Photoshop).

...and Steve's flatscreen dining room gallery is uber cool, indeed :cool:

Nice work Gary, looks great. It too takes me to a Japanese Robots/Mecha type of place (where the heads can often have the v-shaped point rising out of the face).
