Surrealism's Bridge - oil on canvas - 48" x 28" by 

It’s a surreal universe. What the eyes see. What the mind dreams.

See “Surrealism’s Bridge” in a YouTube video from a solo show in 2012 at a real gallery in Boston! The Bridge In a Video

The bridge between modern technology and farming. A world city that forgets about its own planet’s natural resources cannot long survive. We see the truth around us, but still we wait. How long?

“The Bridge” was featured in Dark Future group, August 2009. It was also featured in the Oil Painting group in August 2009. And, it has been featured another 5 times since then. Everyone has been so kind! Thank you every day!

The original painting is 48″ × 28″, is wood slat framed, and is for sale. Contact Dave Martsolf through Bubblemail or write

    looks great !
    painted by hand ? envy you, cannot even draw a straight line

  • A secret – used slide projector for some of it. The old masters used projection techniques as well. The old pinhole camera technique.

    Up till now I have known that no one could see with other man’s eyes….
    No I can se that it is not true…
    there are the organ eyes, and there are the consciousness eyes..
    And though I have not produced these images…I can see them, by the miracle of the symbol.
    Unadverted…..the for left eye, wich the Tao fro where all emerges.
    And visions are running from one brain’s hemisphere to the other, in secuences, in unending cycles of lighting.
    Rosa (very interesting your work, this pic, your profile. I am glad I have met you. Want to thank for your kind visit to my Universe’s Window. All a matter of mutual understanding and visions)

  • I am speechless. Thank you, openly.

    Strangely original … the left eye eager, challenging; the right eye calm, even regretful …the muted colours fractured by? ….town planning; neural networks; the mess of technology, and is that the green back of one of those omnipresent moulded plastic chairs? ……amusing, involving, balanced by colour.

  • Strangely original! I love the way you use words. Nice description. Thanks so much!
