16 x 20, acrylic on canvas.
Generally start these off with a series of vertical strokes and see what the shapes say what to do, where to create buildings, where to create sky. The rest sort of takes on a life of it's own and then the nest and bird happened, then the man. This was truly one of those "doubt it will ever sell" paintings, figured it was too dark or spooky. Barely had it in the gallery for a day and it sold. Go figure...?

Love it. Nice spots of color, positive imagery on top of ambiguous imagery. It's like a playground for my brain.

Mysterious, harmonious & your vertical rendering technique works great as does the touches of pure color throughout - Super !

Very nice. I can see why it sold quickly since there is such an appealing sense of mystery about the piece. I like the way the paint was applied too.
