The composition is essentially a series of vertical shapes moving across the image... with a couple of curves and circles thrown in for variety. But, as always, itís the texture and the light that I enjoy to most.

I thought I posted this yesterday.... oh well, here it is now.

Delightfull..much to look at..which I always like!..the long bendy piece of bone like structure with the dash of orange on the top is my favourite bit.

This is a very interesting piece James, the lighting is so mysterious.

Your distinguished style.
I may have said it before, but your work
could be picked out from thousands, it's that
much of a signature. Which is excellent, of course.
And oh yes,,,the light,,,,:thumbsup:

Katie, Barb, Deb and Babs.... for me this image was like going home again... lots of familiar forms and, of course, the earth tone color palette.

Thanks to all of you for viewing and posting comments... it's always appreciated.

I really like this - lovely limited colour range and then that touch of red. Interesting shapes and lost edges too.

Hi vhere.... this is a color palette that is an "old favorite" of mine. I love the phrase you use... "lost edges"!

Again, thank you for viewing and posting.

As noted, you have a very distinctive and pleasing style. "Organic" or natural shapes and textures and earth colors combined with artificial, hard edged shapes - some unlikely, many floating, all somehow fitting in perfectly. Topping it all off are your trademark spots of pure color, carefully done with restraint.

The end result? Great, intriguing, mysterious, beautiful images.

Here's another one I have to bump up. James, a predominance of earth tones always does catch my eye, and in this one you've combined them very nicely. On top of that, this one gives me a sense of a "wild west" flavor, which pulls my eye to it ever further since the "wild west" is my favorite part of the world.

I also like how you've "filled in" all the space without making it seem too cluttered.

Your work is interesting. The clarity of the painting makes me feel it is a realist painting, but then when I look closer, I can't tell what anything is. That is an interesting experience. One of the greats painted some dead rabbits hanging from a hook or something after a hunting trip (I can't remember who did it). This one instantly brought that painting to mind (same tones), but, as I said, I couldn't actually make out any particular "thing".

Good work.
