The Daily Paintings of Don Gray
It's as if he's turning to say something or reaching over to pick up something he dropped.
Interesting observation, Suzanne. I did feel a sense of movement in the twist of that trunk, but hadn't thought of it in human terms.
Beautiful! I love those old trees, such a beautiful quality of light and texture!
I always see the figure in trees - probably from all the Arthur Rackham illustrations I pored over as a kid! That and those great apple trees in the Wizard of Oz...Beautiful painting! Why is it that our culture does not appreciate those same textures on the aging human face?
Thanks a lot, Pablo!
This is an OZ-like tree trunk, now that you mention it, Martha.It's true that we appreciate the patina of age on almost everything but the human. Guess it's our youth-obsessed popular culture, itself an outgrowth of our fear of dying. Thanks for your comments.
Outstandging light and texture in your work! Bravo!
I thought your work on "Waiting for Breakfast" was a masterpiece. You caught cold on the hoof.
William, I really appreciate your stopping by and commenting. I've lurked around your blog for a long time--great work!
Thanks a lot, Rick. I enjoyed exploring your work. Chester and Carl is a hoot!
