Sunrise - watercolor - 15" x 11" by 

I drew the cosmic grid first and then waited for a dream to focus and then used abstract elements to try to balance between pure abstraction and a hint of a reality beyond the pale.

Here the grid takes on the attribute of a wrought iron screen through which several garden columns rise to frame a sunrise dawn beyond to the east.

Sunrise was featured in Fantastic Primitive Art in October 2009.

    Dude, you’re a scribbling madman! Great idea of the placemats, I got a laminated print here and they’re heavy duty!

  • I love to scribble. I want to make a living out of it. What are my chances? Wait! Wait! Don’t tell me!

    Outstanding Dave!! Love it!! :)

  • Thanks for the fave, Keith! These were fun. I really want to play with the lines more, free them up and color around them like fireworks or something. Always dreaming.
