this painting called for a restrained ( for me ) color pallet and a more somber mood, hope you all can enjoy it for what it says...to you.

Gary I love this one, the patterns are really good and also love those colorsThanks Pat I was unsure of this one initially and the colors gave me pause as I am so in the habit
of using bright and saturated colors, which is exactly why I steered away from those for this work...it was definitely a stretch for me but I am very happy you like it, and it has received lots of positive comments
on Instagram as well.

Gary there was no need to be unsure with this, I actually felt very peaceful looking at this, I came back the second and third time, thats how much I love this piece

More wild free-associations than most for me. In addition to all that, this started to take on a comic book feel owing to those shapes taking on a distinctly figurative look to me. I could look at this one were it on my wall and have a different story each time, kind of like Bradbury's Illustrated Man -- only not dark at all where his was.

Oh wow, Gary....another awesome piece. I see a happy childhood filled with fun rides on a unicorn of an old carousel and county fairs with cotton candy.:o

Very nice Gary!
I'm liking the low contrast in this, it sets the mood like the weather here... cloudy and windy with a high chance of rain.
My favorite kind of weather.... Well done!
