  2. I love 'Spinning' and 'Spinning Into Walls' which is kind of funny because severe vertigo has put the kibosh on real life spinning. Maybe I miss it?

    Lovely paintings, all of them!

    1. Thanks, Michelle - I am spinning all the time - even in my nightmare last night -- so why not paint it?

  3. My favorites are "Look Around” and “A Path”. I’m always looking for answers on my journey. "Look Around" seems like a direct route, but sometimes slowly meandering along "A Path” can be more effective.

    1. I'm glad you found a couple that you like - you post such lovely photographs and it's nice to give you an interesting view as well. Both of the ones you highlighted are a result of dreams - and more complicated than the photo really shows. And I like them both too! Thanks for commenting.

  4. Very nice work. I especially like the colors. "Look Around" is my favorite. It seems to show the turbulence of one's surroundings but with a positive escape that leads upward.

    1. You nailed it, Lee . That painting actually came out of a dream I had - climbing a ladder and then staying at the top of the ladder and surveying the world below - and night fell and I stayed there -- interesting stuff, dreams, heh? Thanks for stopping by again!

    1. Thanks, Dana - see it's origins in my response to Lee above. Painting can be so revealing.

  6. Stunning. Your work is positively mind boggling. I especially like Look Around, though Mind map, and Mind map enlarged are quite amazing as well. A Path is also visually arresting. When will you do a gallery exhibit? This thing you do with paint is very powerful, Gracie, and I'm your biggest fan.

    1. Matthew, you are too kind - it's not unlike the thing you do with words! The Mind Map ones are pretty cool b/c they have great texture - You need to see them in person! A gallery exhibit? Ha! You ARE too kind. My gallery is in what used to be Meg's bedroom. I'm glad you like them. I would bring one up for you but I don't know if you like them THAT much!
