Peacock blue and rust

This is gorgeous. I know that blogs are public and populist and available and everything, and I'm glad your art is on the web, but this could be cloistered very happily in a gallery. This is a beautiful photo.

That's really lovely.

Apropos of nothing, I had somehow managed to forget entirely that you're in Austin, until Dave Bonta reminded me. I'm going to be there next month for SXSWi -- I'd love it if we could meet for a meal or coffee or something along those lines. :-)

Like this big-energy splatter with the baby tropical bird in the middle! Also liked the sharp and soft in the refelctive koi pool, but the rust monster ate my comment.

Am off--must go do my errands before the promised 22 inches of snow. Happy St. Val's, in case the electricity doesn't last.

Absolutly stunning! If I could paint this good, I'd be a happy camper.

wow! gorgeous colour and textures!

I'm not that sophisticated: It's just a great shot, though it reminds me of my bones.

MB said...

Yum. What was it?

Mise said...

There are some of my favourite colours again :D

Pod said...

another rusty winner!

Lori Witzel said...

Hope y'all are having a fine day!

Brett: You made me blush -- and thanks for the compliment. I saw this as I was about to leave the park...

Rachel: Thanks so much! And let's do meet up when you're in town. I think Dave set a connection up so you can email me directly.

Dave: Glad you like!

Marly: Thank you so much! Should we send biscuits and honey? Are you provisioned enough for the 11-foot snows?

Ed: That's why I got hooked on this digital photo stuff...all the color and composition and texture fun, but faster. But I really must get back into some hand-skills...they shape the eye.

Polona: Thanks, and also thanks for the heads-up about my scrambled feeds since I upgraded Blogger. Oh well, I suppose it could be worse...

Refugee: Thanks...and likewise about the bones (I suspect that's one reason for my affinity for oxidation.)

MB: It was a...(drumroll)...wheel-barrow, back behind a fence, as I was leaving the park and its koi and peacocks.

Mise: Glad I could oblige!

Pod: Thanks -- hope you see and catch even more great things this week!

This is absolutely gorgeous Lori !

I used to spend time trying to figure out what I was looking at with some of your work, but then I learned to just accept the colors and shapes and try to let the composition and mood make their own statement apart from any reality.

I liked this. The little pitted blue whatevers add to an organic feel. Nice.

Oh my god! The colors!
