  • impressionist ..whatever you want it to be
    It's a painting, so like all paintings it can be about anything depending on the viewer.
    The painter looses a lot of control once the image is displayed for viewing.
    I like it , to me it is about energy, and color which is enough for me.
    Good composition too, I really like the curving lines.

  • Controlling Chaos rather prettily

    Thanks Robyn,
    I am glad you like this, and my beard :D .
    when I paint I feel it helps me make sense of a crazy world, I find working on the squiggly bits, is a sort of calming meditation. practically it probably does no real good, but painters got to paint :)
    Cheers Ralph

  • Explorer
    This is very enjoyable Don. I particularly like the alien landscape in the background.
    You explorer has lots of character too.
    Nicely done

  • Rooster

    Wow! Don you had a Rooster as a pet.
    How did you tame it? I have known a few, but they were all quite aggressive birds :-O

  • It's DragonFire AKA Rhonda Davis
    Hi Rhonda Sue. :)
    good to see you, not sure if this will ever replace the old gallery, but it is still a good place to post pictures/paintings and hang out.
    Ralph :D
  • Controlling Chaos rather prettily

    Thank you Vivienne,
    Unfortunately chaos is all around, and not hard to find at all >:o
    Glad you like the beard, I am glad I am able to grow it. It feels comfortable, and natural to me like a favorite pair of boots or an old broke in pair of jeans.
    As Pat likes it too there is no down side :D

  • Rooster
    A beautiful solid, strong bird. Great painting Bob.
    I still have the mark on my leg, where one of theses guys used his spur.
    Darn thing ambushed me! He had that exact crazy looking eye :’(

  • Shaman Rock
    Good other worldly feel to it Don. I like your colors and textures choices too.

  • Awakening
    A very good looking Vamp Bob. Good use of color too, particularly the pale translucent skin tones
    Ralph :)
  • String Toy
    It is just a wonderfully inventive piece of art Rita,
    Cool indeed

  • Serenity
    Really like the flowers in this one Don, excellent energy.
    Ralph :D
  • Winter Tree
    Cool work Bob. He? seems to be cherishing those last few leaves.
    Ralph O:)
  • Almost Lifelike
    I am thinking (always dangerous) it's a lifelike mask.
    Wrong or right I like the work.
    Ralph :D
  • Astrid told me of her dream

    Sometimes (by no means always) I can take control of my dreams, and push them in a direction I want to go. I have been able to do that (sometimes) as long as I can remember.
    Dreams and the subconscious have always interested me, and I incorporate lots of related stuff into my paintings. Some people hold the view that we(humans) are rational most of the time, and occasionally crazy. I think the exact opposite is true, so call me crazy :D

  • Astrid told me of her dream

    Isla,
    for me dream flying is similar to swimming you slow down by flapping your arms so you don't descend too quickly, and you land feet first...Well it works for me anyway :D (in my dreams)
