Squall


Like a sudden storm over a distant island... This looks better in person; it's not as grainy as it appears here.




In Munnar.


This video is not of the greatest quality; it was taken with just an iPhone, but I wanted to post it because it shows how Miss Lemon loves to just literally lie on top of other cats, nonchalant as you please. That's Rumi under her, of course, who doesn't seem to mind...but where's his head?!

There are 3 images on this post. You apologized for 2 out of 3 of them, the beautiful pastel of the storm and the lovely Miss Lemon. Frankly, the picture of the old bat heading into the bushes for lunch(?) is nice enough but is the least of the 3. Why apologize so much? It's unnecessary!

I just love this picture 'Squall', so minimal and yet very evocative. A bit more information such as size and medium would be interesting.

I value highly this kind of abstracted horizon image. You did a wonderful job on the (limited) palette, the mood, and I esp. like the texture.

Yum!

Hi Sam - well, we're all very visual people who do this art blogging thang. I want to make sure people understand when I'm posting a substandard image.

Hi Ian - Thank you. Like you, I'm enthralled by minimalism. I always put medium and measurements in the Labels part of the post; this is a 4.5" x 6.5" pastel.

Hi Casey - Thank you. I do love these abstracted horizon images, don't I? I sure do a lot of them. Not sure where (in my psyche) they're coming from...

Very beautiful. This painting really grips me.

Love Squall. Beautiful image.

I really like this pastel, Jala. The colors seem particularly exotic to me for some reason.

You know, I think you really do have "it" with these recent minimalist and abstract works. I've enjoyed looking at your blog and hope you are riding the momentum easily. I'm just nuts for the "Blue Door" image.

So may we all.

Squall has a great feel. Very Maine. Great use of texture.
