SPIKES 2008
acrylic on canvas
30cm x 25 cm

I have been saying that I would be posting pictures of my commission canvases - well I think they're finished - but this isn't one of them - it's a smaller one I've been doing while waiting for paint to dry and finding other things to do - I sort of like it (my daughter does) - but not absolutely sure - see what you think - and tell me what you think ! This work is for sale - just email me to discuss.

  1. It looks like a bank of sea anenomes (the long spiky type) - or are they eels? Anyway, I like the composition apart from the circles top left. Remove the circles and you've got a good stormy sea. The sea and the anenomes (or eels) are too realistic for the picture to be abstract.

  2. Ivor - you have pinpointed the problem that I had with this - it started as an experiment (with something quite different in mind) and turned into this - and found myself fighting against it looking "realistic" - maybe that's why I put the circles there - the stormy sea might also be a stormy moonlit sky and the spikes a bank of vegetation - maybe I was thinking about the moon - I may paint over and see what happens. Thanks for the considered comments - it helps me. And for other readers' benefit - can I point them to Ivor's Blog - it is highly entertaining.
