    1. Thank you so much fruitful dark. It started out as a very different painting but in the end I was pretty pleased with the results too! Half way through painting this one I did some serious scraping….

  1. It really is funny the way we piece things together in our minds. You need to stay away from mountain lions…just in case no one ever told you.

  2. woah…..woah…..gives me “goosies” interesting how that cliff? in the upper left starts the journey and all the cascading silvery blue shapes takes you on an epic journey down to those sunflowers….the moon and then the sunflowers and they are quite lively and spikey. I am reminded of a horror movie from the 30’s but this is in color! I LOVE it! Maybe it is a sci-fi? not sure but it is quite exciting…..I might read too much into your paintings but I can’t help it. πŸ™‚ what do you think of it? is this the one that you mentioned to me about?

    1. I really like it! Laura and I have had conversations about that painting by Munch, The Scream, and lately my sunflowers remind me of that expression.

      I’m glad you like it!

        1. You know, the difference in those petals is in starting from the center and flicking out vs starting on the outside and rolling in…gives a totally different effect. Mixes things up a bit. There there is another petal that I do that is kind of a combination of both. So many ways to make petals! My mood seems to dictate how I do petals and centers.

        2. I was going to ask how you get into your frame of mind because you seem to pull your paintings together quite smoothly to the mood and what you want to convey. You must have a very calm and studious nature…..attentive, I mean. So…..I think that your little dude might be a mix between a hooded guy and the monster that escaped out of a 19th century painting. Now….I am going dramatic! I have a vivid imagination. lol

        3. Lol. I always think of you as being dramatic anyway because of your hat. Reminds me of a southern bell with fainting couch…and of course I know I’m way off base and it is really your sun protection hat. Funny how you get these visions in your head when you see people’s pictures. πŸ˜„. I thought Judith was a 22 year old gamer because used to be when I clicked onto her site it took me to a video game blog so because of her moon, I thought she was into sci Fi. Lolololololol.

        4. hehe! I can quite dramatic….yes! yesterday my grand-daughter fell on the steps while holding my hand and I ended up a sobbing mess! and yet, I can hike trails with bear and mountain lion….hoping that I will run into one! crazy juxtaposition, I must say. lol I thought that Judith was much, much younger than she is when I first tried to envision her. So funny our ideas of people.

        5. Lolol…I do have a studious nature (the scientist in me) but calm is something I struggle with. My paintings and I struggle with each-other till the bitter end!

        6. Lol. No worries. No corner to comment out of. I love hearing people’s thoughts. It is helpful. I didn’t take them negatively at all. They seemed quite positive to me.
