Alan Doner I find this entire painting so compelling I’m drawn to all areas equally.
Micheal Zarowsky thanks Alan, little more patterned rhythm at the top where it was not as open to the wind but yes wind and water make for magic
Tania Kasperska Fantastic work ,very beautiful painting..!!!
Micheal Zarowsky thanks Tania, it has taken my eyes a day to stop shimmering after finishing this….

Frank Horenkamp His complexity is amazing
Micheal Zarowsky actually it is nature that has a complexity…. i simply dabble at the edges of it
Frank Horenkamp As a lifelong professional artist myself I never was capable of doing much in the way of scenery. Buildings antique cars children’s book characters…! God granted me a gift but he sure went out of his way for you. Kudos my friend large kudos.

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Frank, so many different ways to be creative; you sound like my my dad who built his own tools when he needed to / built his own boats when he wanted one on and on….me… i just wander into magic and see how closely i can express what i see
Frank Horenkamp Well it’s kind of true can’t fix my own life but I can organize everybody else’s. Always said I could rebuild an engine with a screwdriver and a pair of pliers. Got tired to listening to my sister yell at my brother-in-law about moving the motor out of … front yard up the hill to the trash. Excuses like it’s too heavy I don’t have any help blah blah blah. So I got me a 2 x 4, a rock and did it myself. I’m sort of opinionated I don’t play well with others a lot of rejection in my life so I don’t take rejection well. Ergo I do nothing with my children’s books. Some dating back to 1984. I suppose I’ll end up a multi-billionaire after I’m dead. Whatever until actual prowess I may or may not have my forte is problem-solving. The keeps this swirling tornado in my head solvent. Search like sitting at the starting line at the drag strip and listening to the engine race at 5000 RPMs but knowing when to dump the clutch. That’s my life in a nutshell.
Frank Horenkamp Sorry forgot to edit again but I think you can figure it out.
Micheal Zarowsky nothing to do with anything – but i took apart piece by piece numbering each one as i went along a 61 slant 6 valiant cleaned it n put it back together – everything worked except the horn; lots of parallels (as i see myself as a problem solver among other things, but no talent to be real social or a sociable type)
Frank Horenkamp I know what you mean me socializing is not good to say the least. People think you’re weird cuz you talk too much or not enough. Since I was diagnosed with Asperger’s 5 years ago I actually feel pretty good about myself for the first time in my life. .. Yet when you tell people that there’s a reason that I’m Different they don’t like it they just want you to be different so they can kick you without feeling bad. Right now I’m preparing roughly 15 cars for a car show this weekend where I have to socialize. Well it’s with people with like thinking Minds that love antique cars and the elite Mega millionaires. Last year I got my me so to speak as I was walking up to this group of Mega millionaires one of them was telling my client he got a headache from a how shiny his cars were. And my client precedes to tell him well pointing at me blame it on the M he’s the best Detroit has to offer. So once a year I put up with socializing.

Frank Horenkamp I used to want to be normal but I just didn’t fit in. You know the people that drive their SUVs or thier Camry. Then I realized what day I’m dealing with a 427 dual overhead cam 6000 horsepower funny car motor. Why would I want to drive a Toyota?
Micheal Zarowsky fuck normal: it is that simple
