My interpretation: Polish soldiers saying to Putin "Don't you dare!". :lol:
Nice contrast, nice attention to detail, well done!

Interesting interpretation, the soldiers need some training:)

Crows on the beach is what I see. But then I have fish crows in my backyard that sometimes congregate on our low tide beach that comes and goes on the river. So that probably influences what I see.
Nice painting!

Fun painting. The only thing I would change is the one just in front of the horizon, a little above center left, creates a tangent. Maybe if he could be a little bigger so his back is well above the horizon, it would eliminate the tangent and create a COI. Try it with some dark paper and see if it does anything. Kay

First reaction is The Birds by Hitchcock only with some whimsy. :)
I like it.

Originally I thought it was a picture of me walking my dog in one of the biggest parks in Krakow, but when I heard my friend's interpretation, she said she did not like this painting from the beggining as it shows the nonsense of life, people (no matter how different they are) dig in the same brown layer of s**t, I was kind of shocked!

I like this...a lot!

I like this, the crooked horizon helps give an interesting slant to finding an interpretation and it is great that the birds have some irregularities, gives them much more personality! Good one. :thumbsup:

The larger image really shows so much more. I find this intriguing and a well thought out and executed work. I personally like it immensely.

This painting has been created over the layers of 10 different paintings, the evolution was quite interesting, I even got some photos of the previous ideas, but maybe 4 out of 10. You can see them here:

You can definitely see the layers in this piece, which makes it so strong! Beautifully allegorical!

Absolutely love it !
The crows give it a mad whimsical touch…. the way they have been painted. perfect composition too, IMHO

Layers and texture, maybe one day somebody will discover the paintings hidden under it, removing layer one by one:lol:
