    Okavango Tributary

    This was inspired by some images of Earth from space of the Okavango river.. which dumps all of it water into the Kalahari Desert giving life to millions of animals. the palate of yellows and browns against the blue green of the river... hope you enjoy this impression.

    Your contrasting colors, life and death. It is amazing what that river does every year for that environment seemingly, always in the nick of time. This planet should have been named Liquid-Vapor-Frozen, or H2O vs. "Earth", which principally it isn't. It seems the balance of these three states of H2O supports life and in it's imbalance life falters. It is the tipping point

    Another great painting that I probably misinterpret or over emphasize,d which is ok. Read my disclaimer statement which absolves me from any responsibility for my remarks, like Congress.

    Anyway it goes into my favorites to muse again.

    The painting is very beautiful and it would take a booklet at least to just express the references to the various and many possible style influenced You packed in here ...

    jibes, PD and Caesar - thanks for the great commentary.It is never possible to misinterpret.... and never possible to unhook my work from all the great works that have been the inspiration for current attempts...
