The Daily Paintings of Don Gray
When I first saw this, I immediately thought, "This is so Don Gray".Blues and browns. I always think of your work now whenever I see that color combination.That being said, I really love this color combination!More please!-Dean
Good morning Don and thank you for visiting my site. Isn't it magical to take an ordinary early spring day and may something wonderful out of it! I love this little painting.Marcie
I can't help loving your work; you handle paint so beautifully.Now, let me work myself up to make a negative comment: even as I maintain my unconditional love of the way you paint, I wish that you would rethink such combinations of objects as the banana and the rope. Make a more decorous choice. It's nice to the viewer. Well, most of your still lifes weren't like that, though.pintamanuel.blogspot.com
Well I never thought consciously about the blue/brown thing, Dean. It's just the colors one sees in the landscape here in winter and early spring. Anyway, glad you like it--thanks!
Thanks, Marcie. I enjoyed seeing your work.
Thanks, Manuel.Of course you know I'm going to disagree with you on the "Odd Couple" still lifes I've done like "Banana and Rope." I like the fact that they are unusual combinations. Why should everything be "decorous?" I tend to equate that term with "predictable." It's good to have a little fun once in awhile with the whole idea of traditional still life.
Don, wonderful, majestic, full of power and movement.regards.Alex
Alex, thank you my friend for your encouraging words!
