Andddddddddd, voila!
Title: "This Approaching Repercussion"
16"x20", acrylics on canvas. Completed January 27, 2013.

This is my first attempt at painting one of my more traditionally surreal images. I rather wish the photo did this a little more justice -- but alas, this is the best I could do.
Where do I begin with this one? I put about as much thought into it as I would one of my drawings; in fact, this started out as a sketch I did in a recent sitting. There's a certain, added depth that came with using color...I feel like it accurately conveys the initial visions I was having.
My thoughts have been a little all over the place, as usual. In the moments I was painting this, I reflected on all the little abstract patterns in my life -- I can't stress enough how much of an impact they have on what I create. Lately the patterns have manifested themselves in communication -- the way people talk to (or often, at) me, what they say, phrases they use, etc. This painting is of such reverberation, I suppose.
I won't say anymore; see what you will, take a hint, lose yourself -- whatever you want. There's significance in everything, I hope you enjoy!:)

This is an amazingly painted surreal dreamscape! The creepy skeleton candle and the strange even one eyed mountains lining the bottem of the cage stucture really pop out as being the gloomy dark side to this seemingly happy sunny day spiraling ribbons on a strange surreal floating dreamscape. The feeling of the clouds and the mist coming off the cage remind me of human pollution and chemtrailing for profit. With total disregard for the safety of all living things on Earth.

This strange eye filled vision really grabbed my attention right away and I feel excited about the all the potential painting that you will make in the future, technique is a four because nothing is perfect there is always room for improvement and I cant wait to see the work you come up with in the future!

Thank you so much for sharing this artwork with all of us!!
