We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

-- Eliot, TS

Beautifully rendered, Gar, my friend. As many layers as rings around a perfectly aged tree, each ring covering the other to bring it deeper into the heaven it's twiny fingers reach for.

Nice close-ups of the years and stories of growth they tell.

So thankful for and love you and MagPi muchly. Your art is such an inspiration to my heart and soul.

Gar,
Just as with "Honk", you have created a gallery quality piece of art work. As you know from our PMs, this style, you are now working in, is very high quality non-objective Abstract Art.

I hope you work in this style on canvas for a while, and see how far you can push it. Masterful piece of art!

These last two pieces, have made me highly respectful of you, as an artist. Do another 10 like this, and start looking for a gallery--because they will sell.
Just don't do them on the backs of kitchen cabinet doors. :D

I'm very impressed with this and your last post. Not only are the paintings really interesting, but you also seem to have found your own style.

I also would like to see another 10 of these, but I think they'd lend themselves to larger sizes--at least 3 x 5, but more likely 4 x 6 or larger.

Good work. Congratulations!

Gino

Nowhere is somewhere,
Somewhere is nowhere!

Either way this painting seems to encapture the safety of comfort zones.

Bright in places,
Dull in others.
Roads well traveled,
Roads less traveled.
City chaos,
Island solace!

Very thought provoking and provocative work!
