It is very dreamy like! I love the blues with the browns.
Except for the 2 strips (dark blue and light blue) that are about the same size/shape, it would be nice to see them a bit different...
Wish my slathering ended up like that! =)

Angry?
Mad?
Fearful?
Hateful?

come stare at me for awhile
let your eyes wash over me
I will soothe you
calm you
cool
you
fool you
love you

in the texture
in the wash
sprays of azure
crashing cobalts
acrobatic aquatics
peace will come
peace

The stripes are going from side to side horizontally, same width. Hope that helps... =)

Considering that this is only 10 x 8, that is some nifty knifework!

and it is mostly blue ...

You slather really well. The variety of blues in this is pretty wonderful for such a small piece. (or did you use trowels on a 10' x 8' canvas?) It makes me shiver a little and feels a bit like the first chill in autumn. Coolness!

thanks brian =)

ha, rick, just a regular two inch pallet knife, slathering goes quickly enough with it, i could set up a factory assembly line with a trowel and churn out two or three a minute, maybe when i'm famous and people actually buy these things ;)

I love this!!! It reminds me of the impressionist style (which I love,by the way). Could be a Monet...
Very nice colors.

we visited some friends a couple of weeks ago... they have a very large image that is almost entirely blue... and I found it so unsettling because it was just a huge blob of unimaginative blue swirls, too much relying on the power of the color alone... it almost made me swoon.

Seeing this in comparison is pure beneficence... thoughtful variations in direction, size, hue... what a sight to behold. I can see your artistic light even better now that I looked into the shadow elsewhere. Well done.
