You portrayed the wind well here GXH.. I feel like I'm in the midst of one of the many tornadoes we see in the Midwest!

You couldn't have expressed it any better by images which blows and whistle and refresh us with chilling gusts and whirling currents. One of your best painting with a solid grip on reality and the all-embracing depth and synthesis of abstractism.

I've never personally seen it, but people in Oregon have told me about the dramatic weather on the coast of your state. I once knew someone who had a brief job working in a small resort on the coast. And she saw some pretty dramatic weather. And of course any place that sports a site called "The Devil's Punch Bowl" knows turbulent water. I saw it when the water was calm and it wasn't such a big deal, but apparently it was a hollow in the rocks where waves would crash underneath and go shooting up through this hole in very explosive foamy ways.

What do you think of the swirly parallel lines? Without the control that etchers and engravers used (the disciplines I think of that use parallel lines to fill space), it's like Gustave Doré on acid, a sort of Etchings Gone Wild. . . :D

Interesting patinas you're creating, the edges of which for the shapes are getting less controlled. Curious result. It's almost as if you are doing battle with conventions.

One of your best painting with a solid grip on reality and the all-embracing depth and synthesis of abstractism. thanks Caesar, I seem to hover on that border between a pure abstract compositions and those that echo some natural scene.. so I am pleased you found this to your liking...:):):):):cool::cool::cool:

:cool::cool::cool::cool::cool::):):):):):cool::coo l::cool::cool::cool: Yep I have been to the Devils' Punch Bowl many times and it can be quite spectacular , the stylization of wind and clouds was done with the "scrubby oil" that our dear friend copespeak donated a while back, I miss her but she seemed to be heading into some serious health issues so I just hope she is doing better and who knows we may see her here again.


Gary, a perfect expression of your thoughts, well painted and much thought in this painting, great job my friend, I hope you are not in turmoil like your painting lol;);););););) LOL Pat no actually I am very calm and happy but did have fun creating this one. it was an experiment with some splash stickers , and Robyn's scrubby oil brush. which I use a lot.


I think there is some icy snow in there. you could be right, I am hoping we get lots of snow to make up for last year ( in the mountains of course , although this will be my first winter as a retired guy so I don't have to worry about driving the 40miles one way to work anymore in the winter) :cool::cool::cool::cool::cool::):):):)
