    I did not know that you were adopted. . . but I can kinda see the family resemblance. . . especially behind the eyes.

    Hey, I never heard of this guy. Thanks for that find! We'll definitely have the bar . . . the Dove Bar. . . (yes, thank you very much for that round of applause. . .)

    You must have known of him before because this reminds me of other stuff you've done in the past, if memory serves. Active image. Very active, though not speedy. My mind wants to grab onto something and I think I'm perhaps getting your pun -- a Dove's-eye view.

    D Akey..actually I found out about Arthur Dove AFTER I had done this piece.. I was Googling "Abstract Artists" ... something I like to do to find out about more artists when I stumbled on this site: http://www.theartstory.org/artist-dove-arthur.htm.... a cool site for anyone interested in art history or a particular artist... I was amazed that so many of his works echoed things I have been doing. Cool stuff since he did it back in eary 20's, 30's and 40's The site identifies him as one of the first American abstract expressionist painters.. So I named this painting as an homage to his genius.
