sometime posting a work online brings out a conversation which speaks a lot about not only the work itself, but how people are seeing / responding / thinking / liking or disliking it / in this way reposting it here the conversation becomes part of the seeing the painting itself
deep snow / forest interior
12″ x 18″
watercolour on arches paper
Lorraine Roy Oh just beautiful. I am there.
Micheal Zarowsky thanks Lorraine, toss in the deep resonating rat-tat-tat of a pileated and the fullness is complete
Ed Reliuga ‘ The sound my heart makes when it is truly excited…enraptured…caught up in a moment of Winter’s charm ‘.
Micheal Zarowsky why thank you Ed, not quite like paris, where nomatter where you stand, there is a masterpiece just waiting to be painted, but i do find, not without effort, i have a knack for bringing out what is magical about winter…
Ed Reliuga I was truly taken aback. This piece truly captured EVERYTHING about woods in winter except for the frosty breath and frozen toes. From deadfalls to the struggling young pines: brilliant green against slumbering background.
Beautiful Michael. “A knack” ….. Indeed. Though I suspect sorcery
Ed Reliuga Something else grabbed my eye….violet hues. I daresay…seldom seen or encountered in such deep richness. Nice.
Micheal Zarowsky Ed Reliuga hmmmmm…i do tend to eat a bit of the snow whereever i am, try to discern if the snow, much like wine, is of a ‘good year’ or not; actually it is fun to go deep into the tangled chaos that the forest is in the winter, and try to express that feeling / sensation of total immersion,
Diane Cantin Sivret AMAZING; very beautiful Micheal.
Micheal Zarowsky thanks Diane, winter and watercolour both start with the letter ‘wuh’ ( idea in part stolen from the movie called ‘a fish called wanda’ )
