Is this one of yours, missy?

Tracy Hamon said...

Cool! I keep getting lost in it, there's some sort of point to begin at, but then when I try to narrow my focus my eyes wander from movement to movement, but not linear, solemnly curved.

Isn't it missy-pants?

Ya, it's one of mine. It hangs in the entrance. :) I should dig up a proper photo of it, but this one will do for now.

Maybe I should explain what I'll be doing on the blog over the next week or so. I plan to post some images here and there without providing additional context. It's an experiment of sorts. I will go back and provide some details to the posts later on. I'll note in the comments when I've provided details.
Or I might change my mind and this post will disappear... :)

Ariel Gordon said...

I've been enjoying the intensity and depth of the colour, the way it moves across the canvas.

There's also a nice interplay between the organic, almost luminous shapes in the foreground and the starker shapes in the background...

Thanks for this - I've been hankering to see more of your art for years!

Anita Daher said...

Wow! So serene and mysterious...

Nice to see your art at last :-) Looking forward to more!

Ariel got the jump on me: first she asks the question I was going to ask, then she uses the word I was going to use: luminous. And like Tracy, I really enjoy the way I can get lost in it. I feel as if I want to fly through it; explore it.

More please Brenda :^)

Ariel, Tracy, Ken, Anita, Pete: thank you! That's so encouraging. It's part of a series that I've been working on and living with for several years. Lately I've been thinking more and more about and around the work. When I get back from BC I'm going to explore the ideas and see where they go.

Beautiful work. I love the rich blue and the way the pattern seems to move inward upon itself. Reminds me of shells or the bones of the ear. (Not that I have an entirely clear picture of either of those, but ... it's where my brain went.)

Lovely. Good luck in BC.

My mind goes immediately to roots when I look at it. It does hold my eye.

Thanks Paula Jane and John! I appreciate the feedback. It's great hearing where your minds go.

And thanks for the luck, Paula Jane. I'm so excited!
