"A garden is always a series of losses set against a few triumphs, like life itself."-May Sarton

I don't know if this one will really ever be done. It started as lifeless, clean, yet dirty, brown, boxy environment, which took about 10 hours. In 40 minutes the color was added and it was given life and expression.

16x20 Acrylic and a little bit of stucco medium for texture... unfortunately the picture doesn't do it justice lol

a bit of a story makes the art come alive. so many just upload without any information not even what kind of medium was used.  You have a nice gallery, well done wish I could do the same.

I love this painting, great color scheme and interesting - kind of atmospheric perspective in cubic forms.

Great, so complex artifacts make it saturated like a big city, great job in here.

I like this one a lot, it has a different sort of aliveness than your other paintings, it's probably the nice clean colors and bolder paint application

Thanks a lot! :) Yeah lately i've been trying to get away from slowly getting to the result by applying layer upon layer of thoughtlessly applied paint. It takes work but i'm slowly getting there I hope!

I really like this - the colour choice seems (to me) rather sinister (though i am drawing my own meaning here) and i feel claustrophobic just looking at it.

of course, the gunfire i can hear in the background probably is contributing to the atmosphere (army training, not war thankfully).

I'm glad you like it! :). Ya its interesting how the environment you are in definitely can make a difference in interpretation. Sorry it made you claustrophobic! But selfishly, its cool it made you feel anything :) haha. Thanks again!
