Fractured World.

Version One

This abstract painting can be looked at in two ways. It can be seen and hung the way I have shown it on the top of this blog or it can be seen the way I have shown it below. I had an idea in my mind when I was painting this and try as hard as I could I failed to convery the exact thing I was trying to do. I wanted this painting to be two complete paintings and I suspect I ended up with nothing. I thought long and hard about what to do with it after I had completed it.

Version Two

I have put it in a mount but not in a frame, so you can see i am still unsure about where it will in the end finish up. I suppose the lesson I have learned from the painting is not to get greedy. Paint the one painting and leave it at that.

I show you it today with some reluctance, but not enough to stop me heading back down to my easel.

  1. It looks like a skyline along a waterfront to me, Ralph. With the sunset hitting it just perfectly. I love it!

  2. That's exactly what I thought. A skyline of the emerald city, or the promised land...
    I like the variety and blend of colors. Especially in the background! It's a good painting!
