elegant, mysterious, wonderful!
:))) something lurking there, feel like something is about to happen amongst those moody colours. Great work Simon. r.
Actually, you are saying a lot. Good painting!
That such a beautiful composition ... Almost abstract! mystery and good paint. Greetings jk
Hi Deborah, yes it is rather minimalist, and wierd, but I feel it seems to justify itself better than my more cluttered offerings.
Hi Rahinayes I was aiming to allude to something away from the scene of the painting, sort of offstage in time or space. Maybe thats why I like painting non events, sort of muzzac to make the mind wander.
Just found your site. I love the simplicity the drama. You are also a wonderful watercolorist. I need to listen to that. You have just made my blog list.Dayle
Hi Joanne, love your work, mine looks kind of sloppy next to yours.I heard a great quote from scottish comedein Frankie Boyle, that a person was so boring that he managed to "break space time", in a way thats wahat I am trying to do, through spectacularly mundane paintings I am hoping to be transcendant.
Hi Dayle, welcome, thanks for the encouraging words.
Very dark and mysterious! Love the composition and the brushwork.
Simon, hi - I think this is the most moody, atmospheric and cleverest painting I have seen of yours. It reminds me of some of Bill Wray's best work. I love the very big forms there, so simply put, with a hint of something interesting or magnificent going on beyond those horizons. That sounds a bit trite but honestly, for me this is a terrific painting.
Thanks Sheila, thats about the nicest comment Ive had. Yes I think theres a lot in simplicity, it can be more poetic. Back from france yet?
those shapes and colors pull me in...help!
Yes its sort of a mental con trick, mundane content but colours and brushstrokes are strident. Its a way to, sort of observe reality intensely when you catch it off guard.
I am Vicente Herrero, artist Spanish painter .Por a link, have seen your blog, I like much the intimacy of the topics and the diversity of skills, very controlled at all time.Congratulation,and pardon for my English, is of a program translator.
Hi Vicente, thanks for the comments, your work is amazing, fantastic light and cool shadows.
A painter of corners of nothing. I get it. ;-)
Hi William thanks for dropping by, love your work, and similarly some of your stuff is about non events. I have arrived at this partly cos I used to be a painter of well known "picturesque views" ie events, and my day painting job is very content or event based. Also I do like the idea of extreme non events, suppose its a bit Dada or anti art.
