    Love the colours and textures!! :)

  • Hi Meladana! Thank you! I just realized there is a plaid pattern – vertically it is wood grain and perhaps the horizontal lines are the grooves of the saw. Back then they would have still been using the long saws with handles on each end – two men doing the work to create planks. Thanks again!

  • Thank you – a high compliment from an artist such as yourself – I love your macro-abstracts! You are proving the old, deteriorating, crusty or rusty can be beautiful! I appreciate you looking and nice comment.

    Have you any idea how hard a request that is for me?? ;o)
    I have too many personal faves! :-D
    But if I must choose one, it would be this image, closely followed by this one for the subterfuge put into getting the image … so relieved it worked! :o)))

    If you want to talk texture, the wood and the hinge, or contrast, the rusty hinge and the new nails, You nailed this and all of it hinged on your technical skills. Great job, this has to lock you into a couple of features.

  • Only just saw this comment – lots of very excellent puns included here (oh, you know how to get to me! LOL). Thank you!
    Cordially, Ellen
