    The Metolius at Black Butte

    a colorful interpretation of a river near me that springs directly out of a volcanic fissure and is a full blown crystal blue stream within a few hundred yards, it sits at the base of a steep volcanic mtn called Black Butte... it is a place of magic.

    It's been years, but think I remember this being a beautiful region with the rivers and lakes...may be wrong, my memory sucks!

    A nice interpretation of what I'm sure is a beautiful sight. Particularly like the water.

    What a trip! Looks like a set for a theatrical winter extravaganza. . . the home of the Snow Wizard who is all into tinkering with clockwork machinery. He is trying to keep the forces of nature at bey through his mechanization. The problem arises when the Snow Wizard orders out for a particular hot spicy and gassy meal and it freaks out the villagers below when they hear rumblings from with the bowels of the mountain. . . but enough about me after surgery. . .

    No, this is a very cool painting and very constructional. I quite like it and think it's moving away from the purely 2D abstracts, which could be a very intriguing direction if it interests you to pursue it -- where you're creating the illusion of actual dimension on the canvas in ways that are more than just random. I think the 3D effect you got a few paintings ago was the first one in that way (though there may have been others, it's the first that comes to mind leading this way).

    Very cool, Gary!

    thanks Steve you are lucky if you have been in Central Oregon at all, a very beautiful area with lots of rivers and lakes and big pine trees.

    DA boy you cracked me up with your comment, and yes I have started to build up more 3D abstracts ( via layers and dropshadows etc ) which give a shallow depth of field effect, not resorting to depth via perspective but depth via placement in a shallow space... just something that has grabbed my attention as of late.

    Wow, Gary, what an attraction! The palette is a favorite of mine, and the textures combined makes for a visual voyage if you will of pure delight, love it!

    That's what art's about, isn't it -- at some point it's about the relationship between the art and the viewer, sort of like speed dating. (D Akey)
