Strange Days_Dust Storm by richardcgreen Strange Days_Dust Storm by richardcgreen
This combo of watercolor and white gesso has had some of its
components used in at least 2 other deviations. I felt it might be worth
while to post the original piece. It certainly works its ominous premonitions
to the hilt, in the hope we never see skies like this...ever. Who knows,
maybe they already have in Oklahoma!

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-09-14
The most striking thing about this painting is the graceful use of mixed mediums. there are so many contrasting textures which give the painting so many things to look at and think about. The tiny farm below the dust storm becomes the focus of the work. It sparks the imagination and gives the painting a feeling of unity Strange Days_Dust Storm by *richardcgreen ( Suggested by crazyruthie and Featured by ArtByCher )

Thank you so much...I shall not deliver a speech. But...not that I'm NOT thrilled....well, it's just an ok exercise in playing with textures. But I don't make those decisions...and I guess the gods liked it. Thanks again....
Kind regards: Dick G

When the gods bestow an honor it's best not to question, just take it and run!
