View Full Version : The Butterfly Effect

Hi This is 12x16 on canvas panel. The blue background looks less saturated than in real life. Just playing with the idea of extra dimensions and the effects of actions across them. C&C welcome. Thanks for looking!

You seem to have your brain in gear for these Chris!
I like this one too.

Isn't it strange how you don't hear a saying for years and suddenly it comes up 3 or 4 times in a couple of weeks?

How do you plan these - just let the imagination take over? - or play with cut up pieces of an original drawing perhaps?

Thanks Maureen, Kathrin, Howard, Tony, Nancy, and Arlene.
Thanks Maureen.. For this I took a photo of a previously unfinished painting and then cut it up in paintshop pro using the selection rectangle to copy and paste small areas. Also used the mirror and flip function to mirror and flip small selections as well. Then I printed the psp version and used it as a reference.
I've also been hearing the phrase on tv quite a lot lately. Strange.

Your work shows so much imagination and I wonder too how you come up with these very interesting paintings. Love them

Is this a second piece similar? I was sure I posted on it but looks here like I didnt. This is beautiful.Love the soft color and I agree a surreal look here.:thumbsup:

Thanks Purple Crissy Tony Naomi Elenor Ian, Kathie, Melodie, and Lulu. :)
Thanks for the link Ian- Sprink could easily become one of my favorite painters too. WOW!
Thanks Elinor . This is really a rework of an older painting so it might look familiar.
This was the original http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/4148271262/in/set-72157607511697766/
Thanks Kathie. I had to google Angus and now see what you mean. He reminds me too a little of Matisse.
