hello or good bye
one way or the other
just good to make


simple...important moments

normally unnoticed treasures

a revisiting of such moments
a revitalizing of such moments
making connections stronger
making us re notice such treasures

the painting is just grand
the message is even grander

allan { thanks, I noticed though that it could do with a crop off 1/4 from the top, but it is ok like this.}

giniaad { yours is really apt and appreciated poetry, I'd say. we live near the greek restaurants, and my father in law loves visiting (he's parked here now - this minute!) but is always rushing off to find his old buddies. - here you can see him at the window arriving while my sister-in-law eats breakfast and others just chat. - truly a future momento }

love the glasses on the little Harry Potter guy

agree about the top 1/4

color rocks and the road it takes is pleasant

Glad you explained the face in the window...wondered who was peeping. Skewed perspective always a pleasure.

The top third crop...maybe...how about softening the color of the building viewed through the window? As is appears to compete in color with the peeper.

I love this as is.. fun painting great colors.. i like the high ceiling effect..otherwise would feel cramped.. nicely done!

Shapes, colors, and the light are pleasant to my eyes on the top.

I can hear (feel) their conversation. It's a marriage between their gestures and how you treated the space...

with the top 1/4 I want to fall over and without it I am in balance but I think I like the falling over effect .. very moving .. excuse the pun.

I like everything already expressed about this one Jerry!! Do you start out with blank canvas and a plan or does it all just come together as you go??? I know you usually don't have a prelim sketch.
Have been wondering about this as the effect seems so sporadic and unintentional yet I'm starting to think that each lay of color is very precisely thought out! Especially as I've been trying this out for myself and just keep ending up with strange abstract stuff!:D Please share!

I really like it as it is...with the 1/4 crop you would lose the great outside shapes (that I think balance the inside figures) .... and I like discovering the "peeper" after reading the title. (does your father-in-law know he is considered a "peeper"...lol)

pero lane{ at http://www.neoncrunch.on.ca/pix/driveway.html I illustrated (3yrs ago) the gestation of a painting from a photo. the particular painting was a big ditych using 2X4 panels. it always proceeds differently but what I am answering is the issue of not drawing first. one applies color successively and approximately and stuff happens. often some kind of unity emerges - and that is what is sought more so than resemblence to the original photo or sitter. although the resemblence is nic and worth keeping an effort towards the unity from within the piece is always more important. In looking at it today i think I was too up tight, and timid using such a pale purple initially for the darks, at least I jumped right in with red, overcompensating but getting to the point eventually.}

Thanks for the link Jerry! I appreciate it and I enjoyed the visual process and progression of the work. Maybe I'll even retain something!:D

I like that you're using this palette. Love the strong backlight and the tilt. Abstract elements are working well, as always. My eyes are so attached to the table that I barely see the person at the window.

the space carries
neat idea
