Painting on the easel beckoning work

Work Becoming relevant, involuntary

Contextual, therapeutic, Application.


cadmium red;  imperceptible compliment

to olive grey green, chromatic-

ally integrating seeming dissonance.


Nature the Wellspring of primary involvement.

    Nice, that’s the sort of art I have around my house.

  2. Philip Elliott says:

    Wow. I absolutely love your art. I know very little about the topic but this kind of style is my favourite.

  3. Bodhirose says:

    I believe that red does compliment the olive green really well. I liked how you left the word chromatic sort of dangling followed by “ally.” A nice play on words there. I see that you’re an accomplished painter as well as writer…that’s wonderful!

  4. Bryan Ens says:

    That painting is stunning! Wonderful colour descriptions in the poem.

    The smell of oil paint reminds me of my grandfather, who was a fine landscape artist; hanging out in his studio was always bliss.

  7. hypercryptical says:

    Love your artwork (in both mediums(.
    Anna :o]

    Beautiful painting; and your sevenling expresses it SO well.

  9. I love the painting too, and can relate to the poem as one who plays around with colours sometimes.

  10. Sanaa Rizvi says:

    Beautifully expressed 🙂

  11. Grace says:

    I admire the artistic perspective – from color to the muse – nature the wellspring of my primary involvement ~ If you love doing it, it is not work anymore ~

  12. Oh I love that painting… love the use of colors in this… a great topic for the form. The reference of primary (to colors) in the last line is great.
