Giant's Causeway




A long time ago, I saw the famous basalt site on the northeast coast of Ireland called Giant's Causeway. Hence the title of this most recent abstract painting. (The Wikipedia photo doesn't give much idea of the outrageous scale of this natural rock formation, so when you look at the photo, keep in mind that the tallest of the columns is about 36 feet high.)

What a dark and mysterious painting, glowing from within with gorgeous colors! The purple and green, blues and browns are wonderful, all sorted out into a composition that does the subject matter justice.

A thrilling painting full of daring moves. Gigantically daring moves through an eerily green space. No wonder you thought of the Giant's Causeway.

Donald - Thanks so much!

Milind - I put the medium in the labels area of each post; this is oil. Thank you, I'm glad you like it!

Sam - Muchas gracias. And thanks for the correct-orientation opinion. Hope I did the tomatoes some little justice, and can't wait to paint the dog, and the little wooden people after that!
