Beach sidewalk transformed.

A tilda can exude life, even more so than an exclamation point. The pause that refreshes.

You have a very impressive blog.

I don't know what a "tilda" is, I looked it up, but couldn't find out. It must be a joke that I am not in on, it wouldn't be the first time.

Now, that red is lovely and I would love to bathe in it and swallow it all up. I like this minimalism you are practicing. It is more daring than adding two dozen details. Not that I don't like those either. Getting two dozen details right is a feat in itself too.

You can go either way as far as I'm concerned, John. I don't know what is appreciated more in general and what the art world at large is waiting for. Large canvases with minimal statements that happen to say a lot?

I can picture a room in which I would hang this painting. As a matter of fact, I can picture several rooms, because it is versatile enough. I would worry about the guests wanting to touch it and trying to rub some of the paint off to take home with them.

Why don't you make a compilation of your best work and have it printed in book form? Of course, I would be allowed to pick them out. That speaks for itself.

I thought it had something to do with Tilda Swinton.

It may have something to do with rice, because there are sprinked white pieces.(lol)

I like this very much. Close shots of things like this do look like mini worlds. It is a very strong intense colour, which is transformed by the white and gold, like life found on Mars.

I thought of fungi...but good fungi that sustains life, an essential part of an essential circle. Love the blue artwork below...very peaceful and serene but not flimsy. Manly even:)

This is an amazing abstract, and very inspirational to see. I've missed your blog, and demand that you explain a tilda. I like Bev's explanation best, is it true?

For the inquiring tildas-

A tilda- the accent over the Ñ in Spanish.


emphasis for the letter "n"

The pause that refreshes as in pop.fiction?
