Normally I'm not a fan of abstract/surreal/whateveryoucallit, but every now and then, something like this comes along and really enchants me. Just, the blending of the colors and the way it flows and eddies, you can definitely tell that this means something profound to you, personally, but it's not really easy to figure out what that is. When I look at this, I get some chills, and it will appear to be a lake, a storm, a nebula, some birds, animals/faces; it's awesome. Usually with a trippy piece like this, I will bookmark it and look at it over and over again, over several days, and I might find the "meaning" behind it, but then I might find another meaning, or never find one at all. The bottom line is, this is amazing, and I know that it means something to everyone, but do they?
First off, the water is simply stunning. The strokes and coloration made me think of J.W. Turner's The Slave Ship. The colors are rich and flow together smoothly. I almost want to reach out and feel the textures. Just brilliantly done on that section.
My problem with this piece is the sky section, or what I'm reading to be the sky. Please don't take this the wrong way, but I feel like it doesn't belong in this piece. For me, it clashes/detracts from the bottom section, due to such differences in the technique. I think it might be that it feels a little busy on this one. If the two sections were separated and used on two individual pieces, I think it would work brilliantly.
Teresa this is lovely and I have to say that I find it quite amusing that the second critique thought that the embankment was the sky! lol Anyway, I guess each to their own interpretation, but it just seems very obvious to me that it is trees and bushes and not sky
