    I love these both. After hearing your music selection, the tree appears even more dramatic to me. It breathes.

    Both are wonderful examples of abstract expressionism. I like the first because it reminds me of a picnic in the mountains. The colors and darks and lights at play are like your jazz stylings. I like very much.
    The second one has a whole different feel and like Byron mentioned has that impressionist brush work going on. Something here reminds me of colors in motion and perhaps nature converging together to create something. It plays with the mind. It is a bouquet...no it isn't. It is a field of flowers... it could be.
    Or it could be a tree. The colors are very harmonious. Beautiful.

    Jonella,
    Alexandra,
    Leah,
    Albert,

    I really appreciate your comments.

    My ideia when I thought doing these paintings was someone burning colors in the middle of a rye field (1st painting). Then, the 2nd one was kind of an aerial view of the field burning in colors. Don't know... Leah, very nice of you mentioning the music. Don't know if you remember "Catcher in the Rye" and John Lennon; that was kind of the inspiration for the music.

    Thank you all.

    Oriane, I just looked it up....I didn't realize the significance of the book and the assassination. I just barely remember when he was shot...I was 4 years old and the only reason I was aware of it then was because as a child, I loved, loved, loved "Here comes the sun" and my parents explained to me that John Lennon was part of that song.

    I'm impressed once again by Your mastery, dear friend, and especially by Your superb second one, with such expressionistic brush strokes adding so much to an emotional approach to it!
