I dig it. Almost like it could be the pubic hair of the earth. A manic kinda buzzing, but also a calmness. Nice.

Thank you MuchFoolishness...I do so love the crow crashing...makes we want to try and go play with that notion.

Thank you Mary. I've still got a fairy or two floating around the house begging me to put her on eBay er something :D

Thanks kindly Trumball.

Wow, this is unexpected after the ! :) You have a remarkable range in expression and I love that; not ever knowing what to expect from an artist. I love the application of this and the effect -- messy as anger often is: an emotional bonfire...

Well done, Michael-Ann.

This could be many things. I see figures shifting one into the other, magma, the forming of the planet, the war between the gods and the giants, fallen angels, alchemy, lost planets. Oi. Very chthonic and intense.

When it burns in your gut, that is angst indeed. There's a lot of release, healthy and heartfelt. Nice movement and shock and oh so much yearning . . . and I love that you were burning to show it!

Tamana, Aurorapope, and Smileawhyl - I can't begin to tell you how beautiful you are to me...and perhaps I shouldn't, cause that is just sappy... I wish so much that I had met you 20 years ago...thank you :)

If you don't mind my $.02

We are in life exactly where we want to be, otherwise, we would organize our actions in a linear past differently to arrive at where we are, and want to be.

Apparently, mine have eclipsed to be at this moment, looking at your painting.

It's a beautiful work.

Michael-Ann, that is a very lovely thing to say. :) Thank you. And no, I don't think it's sappy at all. I wish the world were more apt to express feelings rather than worry about how it looks or sounds for fear of being rejected or hurt. But as it stands, people repress, hold in for not wanting to appear vulnerable, when vulnerable in and of itself demonstrates such strength and self-confidence in the fact that despite appearing foolish to others, or endure possible ridicule, the person is willing to take the risk and move through the pain of it vs. not ever conveying their heart's content.

It's those such as yourself, who take the time out of a day, a moment out of play, to let others know what a difference they are making in a not-so-nice world sometimes. I use to focus on hope. Hope hope hope...it always seemed pretty dismal at times too. Then my mentor altered my focus from hope and hopelessness (be they hours days months years) to trust. Trusting that no matter what happens tomorrow, it will take care of itself. And if it's bumpy, then so be it...the beautiful thing about tomorrow is that it evolves into today always with another tomorrow to trust.

Trust vs. hope can affect the way you live and think.

Thank you again for sharing your heart. I too am honored that you are a part of this forum and that I know you. :)

Michael-Ann,
Although I am a realist painter, I like to stop by the abstract forum from time to time. Not sure what it is, but I like it! Even a realist can appreciate abstract art that demonstrates a masterful use of color--which you did. :clap:

I see a tree with gnarled branches, exposed roots going into/near the water in the foreground, sunset behind, reflected in the water, blue sky & clouds above.

I like your brushwork.
