I am a visual artist using mostly acrylic paint on canvas. I’ve been working on something that I call The Ocean Series since 1978. The Ocean Series could be described as a Remodernist response to the late work of Mark Rothko.

    This was perhaps the most extraordinary dawn that I have ever witnessed. The ultraviolet effect only lasted a few seconds.

    love the violet in this my friend. human skin in shadow with the saturation turned up.

    ever tried placing colours opposite on the wheel side by side, when they have the same tonal value (ie shade.) i just thought it would really work for you, maybe… maybe.
    i am confused by coountry codes, but mobile numbers now work across all sorts of networks without difficulty. i have pain most of the time, so i would not be able to talk for that long… this is a physiological left-over from the curse/blessing brain tumour stuff.
    so here’s my nunber -

    don’t worry about hiding this comment or anything i doubt anyone nefarious is collecting such things. i have never been paranoid, oddly :)

    thank you for the depth of your understanding; always, always.
