This is a sidebar painting for another piece. As a stand alone painting, I just thought of this alternate title. The title is so misleading; it gave me a chuckle so I thought I would share it. Acrylic on paper.

Very strange! I like it. Is this oil or acrylic?

This is so neat! The texture, pattern, waves, it all works together. Wonderful work!

What a strange wave pattern! Wrong place at the wrong time if you are inside the crazy house/vessel. Always intrigued by your use of texture - very signature! Excellent curve at the bottom of the (lime?) round object. No idea what it means, potentially more than a thousand words in this painting! :thumbsup:

Hey Dave, not much meaning on its own...this is one of the sidebar illustrations from my Lighthearted narrative.

Bob Waving Back!

The green and the blue
and the silver white glimmer
shone in his eyes with a shimmering simmer.
Oh, to go further, cross seas, fields and plains
to where Bob Mc Ginley, his great grandfather, lay.

He looked at his acorn and said, “What the heck!”
Threw it in with a shove and jumped on its neck.
He bobbed and he bopped.... he got jiggered about.
He was haggered.........bedraggerd.............he was fruffled throughout.

He hung on for dear life...... His little heart aching.
His toes quite shrivelled, his little hands shaking.
He rode high, he rode low on war raging seas,
With Manannan Mac Lir wrapped round his knees.

With a whirl and a swirl and a thump and a bump.
He survived the Atlantic. The Sprits were trumps.
He followed the stars with his eyes in his heart.
And planted the acorn beside his great grandfather’s heart.

Thank you Artbymdp - I enjoyed your painting so much.

One can only be as aspiring as one can be inspired. Your paintings are beautiful.

I also admire the texture in this painting, and in your paintings generally. Fantastic waves!

Thank you. If this was a year ago I probably would have simply painted a rolling wave as I thought it would exist on the ocean. With all the fascinating abstract paintings I have seen on this forum and all the amazing realist painting in the acrylic forum, I challenged my own design of the waves as an abstract composition painted with a bit of realism.

I don't know what it is saying, but who cares when a painting is so well conceived and painted...great texture and brushwork.
