so very beautiful!!! you know I love sarasota ,I went last year to the colony resort and love downtown!!!
Sarasota is probably not as good for me as it is for you because I grew up here. I mean, there have been a lot of changes, and none of them were good. I saw the place for the first time at the age of 4 years, in 1958. If you love it now, you would have loved it a lot more then.
I went away, didn’t see the place for 20 years, from 1971 until 1991. I decided to go for a drive out on Longboat Key. When I saw what they had done to that beautiful place… I had to pull over and cry. I mean I just completely lost it for a while there. Couldn’t see the road.
And the more people come here, the faster it goes.
Orange …my colour! ….
Love the gentle peacefulness of your work.
amazing clours n its soo gentle n fragile in a way
CarsonTo demonstrate that I respond in the forums to brash postings and not the people behind them or their art.I have a field of relatively simple colours on my retina. You invite me to apply a perceptual template and just as you intended I am looking out over an ocean. You then invite me to respond emotionally and once more your intention is realised. I have a sense of beauty and serenity [and solitude and pensiveness]. You transport me back to various points in my past. So all very successful – well done, very pleasing indeed………………Now lets see you step off the beach and similarly manipulate my response to your art!
“lets see you… manipulate my response to your art!”
I already did. You responded exactly as I intended for you to respond when I painted the thing in the first place. Or did you think that was an accident?
Nice. Orange in a landscape always makes me think of the end of the day when the sun is setting. I’ve always wanted to chase that setting sun and find out what scene it is illuminating. It’s an ultimately futile thought though. A great book that sums this up is Michael Moorcocks, The Golden Barge, which was one of his later and more mature works. Anyway what I’m trying to say is that this work has created an emotive response in me as all good art should!!!!!!
