    Purview


    It was a childish Ignorance,
    But now it is little joy,
    To know I am farther off from heaven
    Than when I was a boy.
    - Thomas Hood

    Ah, a lover of poetry. I can see you appreciate a poetic symmetry with variation. I like the rather visual representation of that with the poem. Great colors. Very refreshing, and a nice counterbalance to the notion of a mild twinge of sadness over a more or less natural truth as expressed in the poem. While it grazes melancholy, the colors expressed there can be perceived as perfection. The balance of left and right makes it also feel a little like a not quite exact mirror, which is fitting as a symbolic representation.

    Very nice!

    Thanks D Akey, for your detailed comments. Frankly, while doing this picture I didn't have any such thoughts or fantasies you've expressed. Perhaps, the picture emerges for the beholder! I'm privileged! Thanks again!

    It works for me Wenkat. I am visualizing a large canvas with this painting again. Museum...or perhaps in a lovely beach home off of the sea some where....

    Great visual interpretation of that very Romantic poetic notion! Now you need to review your Wordsworth.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Thanks Alex, AT-TA, Coops gxhpainter and ScottF for your opinion and comments on this. Great poetic lines induce further and are true value-addition to any works.
