"Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the painter's soul." Vincent Van Gogh

Finished, Neutrinos and all!

Put on the finishing flourishes and touches and I am happy! I loved painting on the linen as it gives so much texture to the brushstrokes - I could get used to using linen and think I should make it a habit.  Have posted a couple of close ups as well.  I still dont have a title for this painting but I think its the closest I have come yet to my goal of engaging the viewer in a reality that is beyond perceptual appearances and expectations. I will keep on trying and it is facts like these that spur me on:  "Neutrinos are the most abundant particles in the Universe and our Sun produces over two hundred trillion trillion trillion neutrinos every second, sixty-five billion of which speed through every square centimeter on the Earth's surface. They pass through the Earth. and us, without disturbing a single atom."
I must say I find this to be extremely fascinating and hope to give my viewers the feeling that there is more going on than meets the eye - no matter what subject I am painting! In any case, I hope you enjoy this picture as it is one of my favorites to date!


  1. Your work is beautiful also so unique.
    I love the action in this piece. I can see the wind and you?

  2. Thank you, Irit - what a nice comment! You have made my day!

  3. I don't know if the linen is what brought this piece up another notch, but I DO know I love it, too! (Linen AND this painting!) I agree that it is pure heaven painting on the stuff! Title?: "Almost Heaven"

  4. Thanks for your title suggestion, Debbie! And also for your support!


Your comments are welcome and brighten my day!
