    the chaos here is beautiful.
    swilrling and alive.

  • ‘beautiful chaos’ … reminds me of Beautiful Farrago ;D
    That’s how my mind really is: movement and color and swirling chaos.
    Love how you see this, ami x

  • Thank you so much Christie!
    I really loved painting this one. It was like a vision I had in my mind for a few days until I finally put it in an artwork. xx

    This is beautiful. I love the swirls and colours and the song too! :) beautiful artwork my dear, i get lost in it. Can you submit it to the colours of the wind group cos i think you submitted it but then my computer did some weird thing and rejected a whole amount of artwork sadly. This is such a great depiction of the group. x

  • The song’s amazing, isn’t it? :D
    And I love how you’ve said that you get lost in it. That’s exactly how I felt as I was painting this… my mind was off in some unknown place ;)
    I’ve just joined your group, so I will submit it right away. Thank you so much for considering this painting for your group!
    I appreciate you very much dear friend xx

    Lovely work Erika – blue is my favorite colour and is traditionally associated with healing – here there is a representation of swirling movement and gentle chaos yet there is peace that is living and real-I sense that your words in italics are particualrly appropriate as so often dreams give a sense of vision and in an artistic sense one can feel the intensity of a hurricane moving toward renewed seeing and renewed vision of existence. Excellent work Erika, a favorite for me and one again I am a very proud grandfatherx

  • often dreams give a sense of vision and in an artistic sense one can feel the intensity of a hurricane moving toward renewed seeing and renewed vision of existence. – I just love your words right here George. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts, and for feeling the visionary purpose behind this work. Truly means a lot to me, my friend xx

    Your interpretation here is just incredibly alive. I love the line “out of my dreams a hurricane is born.” But the art work is just perfect to represent what happens at the edges of a dream, just as outside the eye of the hurricane which in itself is still. Just love it!

  • Your words Lianne, are always so warm. You describe art in such a caring and detailed manner, and I appreciate that so much. Your kindness means a lot to me. Thank you, my friend x
