I love the colors that you used...the red really looks rich against the black:)

i love this work in a strange way... it's got some sublime inherent force in it...

i feel the lines in the shadow of the bush and in the shadow of the cat and in man's legs and body converge somewhere in the sky... there is a distance between them now... even we don't see the man's hands... no reaching out... just a contemplative posture... just observing... but they are (will come) together at the end (not necessarily physically)... something is growing... like that plant... from dark to light...

the balance between the parts of the work and the contrast among the colors (as NIKKI mentioned) are perfect...

this is one of the best works i've seen quite in a long while...

it conjures up some words:


.

i bestowed
my hands
upon the trees
and my steps
upon the land
now
i can watch you
go

.


ahhhh... when crows like something, they crow a lot!!!

The figures both a little eerie and yet also reassuring. I love the color combination.

Thomas Sheridan said...

I am facinated by the white half border on the human figure. Looks like the person is caught between states of waking and dreaming.
