    Gives the impression of a big, unknown forest! Beautiful!

    Beautiful and great idea to show a different perspective of the trees! The colors are gorgeous together!

  4. Beautiful reflections.

    Wonderful color combinations!
    If you allow me I would title it ‘As above not below’ cause they evoke very different worlds and emotions. I like vey much this duality in your painting.

    • Thank you Madalina for your kind and very perceptive thoughts! The title is actually meant here as both [above & below] being one, or part of the same “being”. So whichever way one sees it [reflection, negative, yin yang] it’s all one…. I hope this makes sense. I consider myself word-disabled!

      • Madalina says:

        It makes a lot of sense and I do not think that you are world-disabled at all. I was actually expressing the way I saw the painting and I hope I did not disturb in any way. I entirely respect the artist’s opinion and view.

        Thank you very much for being a constant visitor and critic of my works!

        • Of course it didn’t “disturb”, I took it as a very constructive and kind comment! I welcome all opinions! The “word-disabled” is because really speech is my last resort for expressing myself! I don’t do very well there! Thank you again!

            I can say the same about myself and I truly believe that the work only should talk for the visual artist and not the words. I am very often wondering if it is good to attach words to my photos in order not to influence the viewer.
            I like the way you express yourself both in words and in art and I am curious to see your last creations.

    If I had enough walls to surround my home with your paintings, it would be a collage of colorful emotions, to be honestly displayed to the world. Fantabulous you are, as always. 😀

    These colors are more me (whatever that means). 🙂

  14. Very apt with the “waters” in red = beria, which means mercy in kabbalah.
    I would definitely hang this in my home!

  15. Another beautiful work
