Thanks for looking in. Hope you enjoy.

Some days the painting knives get loose and something like this happens.

18 X 12 in on plywood panel.

Thanks Chammi.

Easily done. Just throw a Mondrian against the wall until it breaks.

nice sky and very colorful fields......could be titled "South Dakota Landscape"...:thumbsup:

Thank you Mr. Blue (what we won't do for the sake of a rhyme).

The title references southeastern Ohio, where you can actually see the line of rocks that the glaciers left behind in their retreat. I just left out the farmhouses.

IIRC Athens, O is a little hillier than this. Went there one time only.

Very impressive colours and interesting shapes, Cliff. It does have the look of a disassembled Mondrian.

Nice, I like it. Good colors and good contrast with the sky.

A strong hard-edged abstract landscape! Well done Cliff!:)

Colin, thank you. The Mondrian reference came to me after I finished the pencil sketch that is the basis for this.

Bob, thank you. A lot of those colors were mixed with black.

David, thank you. It's all knife work.

Maureen, thank you. Your comments about this painting caused me to attack this surface the way I did. So you get some of the credit, or blame, as the case may be.

It reminds me of Paul Klee, except better for the most part.

Daq, thank you. Your comment is very generous.
