Nice handling of difficult composition... The slanting of vertical planes, and variation within negative spaces are brilliant! The extremes in values are softened by sunkist yellows and lost edges. Great summer piece! A new classic...

Splendid figure in boat...background seems a bit underdeveloped. Are you finished?

the negative space of the water forms a big W

the arrangement of children forms a big P

thought about that too jerry

but assuming the theory holds
against the subject of speculation
i then thought

left most boy's arm and leg - w

right most boy's head and body - p

pole - a cinch for t

but then again there is
the recursiveness and
self reference
and pattern repetition from
the major to the minor forms

it is a great ride on
movement and color

YAY!! :clap:

Could possibly be my favourite of yours, dornberg...

Jerry, are you just fooling with the letters, or is this really the key to dornberg's titles? ( I haven't asked you directly dornberg, because I've only seen you reply to your own threads once! :) )

AH
the only corroberating evidence I have that Bob is referring to major gestures within the paintings in his letter based titling/filing system, is that, occasionally, he points out such letter shapes as important features of other artists' work.
I am trying to create a personal mythology of dornberg, and so I think of his quirkiness and wisdom a lot. If you find out anything significant, I am interested, but I have to admit the uncertainty may be as good or better than knowing, because when you know, then the matter is 'closed' - and you know I do like open form.

I keep forgetting to mention that the color is so strong here - so strong and glowing.
it is not something too easily achieved.
