This work has real leaves and the imprints of those leaves,
it makes it hard to tell what is real and what is an impression...
This work has tiny round mirrors to catch your image in,
shadows of fast moving water in the winter,
puddles played in on cloudy spring days and
the golden bronze colored memories of youth. (and of summertime, when it's hot!)
***
Here is the quote that inspired the work:
My house says to me, "do not leave me, for here dwells your past." And the road says to me, "Come and follow me, for I am your future." And I say to both my house and the road, "I have no past, nor have I a future. If I stay here, there is a going in my staying; and if I go there is a staying in my going. Only love and death change all things."
~Kahlil Gibran

HMBT said...

Thanks Blue...I mentioned this one yesterday, said I hated it...but after getting up this morning and it was dry and ready for some detail work...I really ended up liking it...so I guess it's better if I don't look at them while they dry...*Grins*

Did you use resin on it? Love what inspired it and really this is quite beautiful, well stunning really. Are you putting the quote on the back of the painting?

HMBT said...

Hey Cor! Nope no resin, but that would be a good idea. It has tons of poly on it though, so it has that affect, sorta. I put the quote on the back of every painting and I include a paper copy of it when I ship. The day I took the photo of this work was so lucky, because in different lighting it looks different, so I have it on a sunny wall (hence the tons of UVB poly) so I can watch it change through the day. :)

Wow. This is stunning!

This is the best thing I've seen on your blog. Just wish I had a few bucks lying around rather than a clothes dryer that just gave up the ghost! :)

HMBT said...

Golly Andrea, thanks!

Beautiful, Heather - and one of my favorites too!

Plus, I always enjoy your quotes.
