Sunlit Splendour

Posted by Picasa
This work is 99% imagination and 1% reality. But, when you think of it, imagination is a reconstruction of what you see and what you have experienced. Its a bit like shuffling the life deck of cards. You then take the cards and set them out on the table and rearrange them. You add the colours you think would be best suited and you move the landscape around to suit your purpose and click the shutter and construct a new and higher reality.


  1. It's absolutely glorious!! I love the varying tones and washes -- magnificent!

  2. As usual, fabulous! Isn't the imagination a wonderful thing. Anyone can take a picture, no one but you could do this painting.
