This is one of a number of studies I’m making on colour in the natural world. I also submitted it for a Pantone image competition.
OK! I know it’s just a flower. I simply couldn’t resist the contrast between the hot pink and the dark greens. I also wanted to create artificial depth by going fuzzy on the right of the painting and very sharp and detailed on the left.
This is one of my favourite images from Stanley Park in Vancouver. A small flower occupies a penthouse between the roots of a gigantic fallen trunk.
Another one of my “Nature Overcomes Man” images. Stumps grow shoots and start over. Wonderful visual of life overcoming cement. I hope you like it.
I’m fascinated by the unseen, the places and spots we go by without a thought that contain full Universes if you only stop and look – or stop and listen?.
This roots network was at the foot of a tree in Vancouver’s Stanley Park. I’m simply amplifying through color (and strokes) what is always there for the observer to see. I never tire of looking at this type of visual.
It isn’t as impressive as a sunset or some great garden somewhere, but, in its own granularity, it is just as rich and deep as any vista. I hope you like it. As usual, thumbnail accesses a 600 x 400 jpeg.
This one’s definitely whimsical, or just outlandish, depending on your point of view. I’m always struck by the way nature claims its own over anything man-made. In this particular case, I thought the fresh green leaves felt like the rusted pipes dream, or thoughts. The wondrous tentacles of life find purchase on the most barren and urban spots.
