A DETOUR INTO FANTASY.......

I have no idea where this came from. I have never considered fantasy subject matter in my art. It may have had something to do with the fact that I created this the week I watched "Avatar". When viewed in person there is much to ponder!
This is a 16 X 20 stretched canvas, unframed. It is a mixed media piece of acrylic, oil pastel and some paper collage. I have titled it "Candlelight Dinner".

I like it. I REALLY like it! Artistic expression does not come from the logical/verbal brain, but emerges from the emotional brain. It is experienced by the viewer as emotion also. Which is why I want to see this one in person.

Well thank you! Come on up! It's not like you have a job to go to! (grin)

OHHHH Jude. It is even more beautiful than I remembered!!!! Wow! The layers can almost be pealed back like lacy, fragile phylo dough. With the right quiet music playing, one could get lost in there! By all accounts ... a success in a brand new direction. Love it!

Thank you! Your guidance really did help too. I wonder if there is any more fantasy in my head?

Love it ... but always do when you take off in a new direction. To think I almost missed it for not paying attention. That happens when rss feeds get out of hand, like the blob.
