100219 : Nicaraguan Hut


Don't ask me to explain why I took this shot or why I like it. I just do. I suppose it is something to do with the contrasts : contrasts of line direction, contrasts of colour, contrasts of shadow. There again that might have nothing to do with it. Best just not asking.

I like it too. The shadow is also a nice touch.

I like it as well, Alan. It has a modern-painting look to it. Rothko? Hockney?

It is because you are a hiden natural born visual artist and it is a great composition. I saw your one painting and I thought it belonged to a master. I had a friend who was a math teacher and one day he found the right side of his brain. He directed plays and painted pictures his last ten years as a teacher. You already write and speak from the right side of your brain. You just have to get it all connected. The colors are so fantastic.

I love the turquoise color of the painted wood and the lines, too.
You are right though...don't question why, must enjoy!

It's one of those pictures that make you want to keep studying it. Well, it does that for me.

It works really well as your blog header - the colour is sublime.
