Wow, again - great stuff! The magenta palette on this one captivates me along with the depth behind the grating.

Great piece of artwork. This reminds of some of the old viking art, wood carvings from my ancestors far back. The vikings had wood carvings that looks a bit like this on their houses and on the ships.

[...] mental anguish, etc...

Hi Dave -- it shows: writhing thoughts held up only by the cold thin metal of a dark drain of hole.

I think this is the most emotional piece I've seen of yours thus far.

I always notice titles first...words are my biggest passion...so I was pleased that your title so well suited your painting.

I thought of the winter vines that form the membrane of my courtyard. Twisted and knarled, without their leaves, they form a wonderful winter sculpture against the boardering trellis. Winter in NZ is often warm enough to still take brunch outside...especially on a sunny winter day.
