Imagine


This was a great topic because there are no limits to the imagination.
My idea was to paint penguins on a tropical beach. (penguins, rhinos, zebras and giraffes are some of my favorite animals to draw). Well, as often happens, the painting evolved into something quite different from what I had initially imagined.

Acrylic paint and ink on an 11 by 14 inch board.

Your imagination is limitless! I like how the penguins appear to be enjoying the warmth. Think this is also another Universe :)

These are penguins of an entirely different color! They look as if they are hanging around with giant oranges. I must agree with anonymous - your imagination is limitless and unafraid to go wherever it wants. As always, an intiquing subject and beautiful colors:>

Amazing as always. You do something with the colors and textures that I don't even understand. Again, I'm in awe.

You have such a sense of humour in your paintings, yet you still paint them equisitely - a wonderful combination!

The tonight show had animals from 5 continents on stage at the same time: Penguins, Otters, Reindeer, Kangaroos, Arctic foxes. THEY all got along!!!
And your favorite/fauvist colors ARE inspiring.

I love penguins! Now every time I see them on nature programs I think of your paintings.

Just rented March of the Penguins with the family last week. When I think of them huddled en masse against the snowstorms, I don't think they can imagine a world like you've created. This one and all the others as I scroll down the page use such amazing and rich colors! Whoa.
I agree with you, the art sorta goes off on its own, away from where you originally intended, huh.

I just adore your combination of colours. It is so alive this one is just as great as since last friday. It is fun to imagine contrary things.

jaimie, that's great.
they fit right in and yet they also appear to be thinking ?how did I get here? what's the plan? etc.
this could be my favourite of your work that I have seen to date. (such a small amount) I look foward to seeing more.
love scott
