Ahhh. They are beautiful in only a Michael Scott way as always.

Mother of pearlescent. Stained glass stories. The dimension of bones is incredible and looks like an archaeological dig. So full of wonder. Do you have the dimensions?

Ahh that second, Michael. those yellow/reds stains umm. It looks like you've gently removed mother of pearl from shells one by one and used it. Exquisite technique.

I can't wait to see them finished. :)

:D

Welcome back.

MMMMmmmmmm. You have very nice bones:D

I like these very much. They look very smooth and touchable. Is the first one finished, (looks like) or will you add color to it also? I think I like the first one without color.

I like them so much I am now babbling....:D

great composition in both paintings
the bones rumble deep in the heart
stirring things
the mumble of very old men
the sea, the land beneath it
the land above it
a depressed magical journey told by the small things
i like your shapes
lately i’ve been thinking a lot about shapes and contours in art
how boring they get, people use the same things over and over
silly repetition of mundane geometry
you always have good interesting surprising shapes
the second looks like a scary neighborhood
from the view of a disenchanted bird
just flapping by in the wind
defiantly not a place i want to be
beautiful beginnings michael lovely

Oh what a treat! Are we going to get to witness your process then? I'm so excited! I dearly love that first one..... It's got depth and power and all kinds of wonderful things going on. And then the second one is full of mystery and normality and wonder and wow. Can't wait to see where you take these. Thanks for posting!

thanks every
the first one i guess is close to finished
needs surface touching and some little detailing
probly the type of finishing that doesnt even show up here
the other has a long journey to go
i read about a new housing display villiage owned by a Mr.Death
"there is a house here for everyone" says death
isnt that the truth
i dont know what the situation is in other countries
but in australia houses are more investments than homes
the ppl who can afford mortgage their properties to buy more
the houses take up most of the block
they are stupid ugly unholey status symbols
there are whole suburbs of these
the word "community" has been replaced by "demographic"
the rich get fat the poor get homeless
nobody smiles

Dawn or dusk...is what it looks like to me.

It's the first time I have seen your work and I am very impressed. I adore 'bones of the falling'. The second one just sings with color.

Can you explain more about the technique you used for 'bones'?

the first strikes as an angular bas relief
subtle in palette
leaving one to explore the geometry by rhythm
and not so much by hue
it's got a good beat

the second a feast of building dreary at first
apt commentary on your commentary
then you gave it the edward scissorhands neighborhood feel
which continues the commentary well

keep on
whatta treat

when its raining its good to have a roof

technique? hmmmmm
its a bit of plywood that got sized sanded
gessoed collaged latexed waxed pencilled painted poked at prodded and varnished
technique is mainly about paying attention

the queen of zots!!!!!

we live in a world turned on its head, a desolate, de-souled world that practices the superstitious worship of machines and the idolatry of arms, an upside-down world with its left on its right, its belly button on its backside, and its head where its feet should be. It’s a world where children work and don’t play, where ‘development’ makes people poorer, where cars are in streets where people should be, where a tiny minority of the world consumes a majority of its resources.
If the world is upside-down the way it is now, wouldn’t we have to turn it over to get it to stand up straight?’
-Eduardo Galeano
