Beached

This is a sketch for the larger painting that I did a while ago- I'm going to revisit this theme and develop it a bit. Bink to explore hidden worlds of pigment minutia (sp?)

Love this! How come we didn't see this yesterday??? I had problems with DP yesterday too. Did you?

Ron Morrison said...

No everything is okay just put a different painting on the DPs.

Michelle Smith said...

Nice.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michelle, I used this boat in the bigger picture, but I have to go back and re-evaluate and see if I can't develop the style a bit. Explore...

I'm liking the big shapes and the darks.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michele, just playing.

Ron.. i think this is my favorite boat painting you've produced. Has that impressionist touch - a perfect composition and color arrangement for me. the blue background is nicely rendered.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks W.K.,its hard to know what works and what doesn't.

Ron I love this - but say, whats going on in that car back there?

Ron Morrison said...

If I only knew,
I'd tell it to you,
But I haven't a clue.

this is really cool. So much going on!

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, N.N. are you back in the saddle?

Sorry for the tardy comment!
I like how the boat is stationary but looks like it really wants to move away. If boats could talk, they'd proabably take in water and sink...but this one would be screaming prayers for the ability to move.

newnorth said...

yes, I think I am :) (abourt time too)

Thanks, Grimm, its interesting to me how people see my paintings. The stories are fun because they add to the "life" of the piece. When I look at other people's work, I always check out quality first, content second. Maybe not 100% but I definitely look for good painting.I'm not much of an interpreter or story constructor. Even though I am a narrative painter and proud of it, I am amazed and flattered that my stuff inspires such anthropomorphic interpretation. I think that the conceit "if they could only talk" is a constant imperative. Maybe they are saying something within their obvious limitations by provoking speculation about their history and their present circumstances.

N.N., you have a talent for writing, maybe not for spelling. I used to be an editor- I know about such things. Now go write something.

Ron Morrison said...

Nobody's commented today so I will. This is something I drug up from the bottom of the vat. I don't get a good response very often on the DPs anymore. As we speak this one is rated solid green which is good. It will get pitched to recycle bin and never see daylight. Its a funny world, this art world.

Brothergrimm said...

I think I do that to all objects. I must get frustrated at the fact that they can't actually talk to me, so I imagine them doing so, just to test out a personality. Kind of like how we all refer to old broken cars as "dead".

Ron Morrison said...

Its funny, I view these characters as male, yet my motorcycle, which is big and powerful but since I "ride" it, its female.

I am leaving another because this is just so nice. Love the brushwork.
