Enough Eyeballs?

Homage # 2, 24 X 36, WIP: work in progress

Now that I've posted this here I can see a couple of colour adjustments I need to do, but how about the flying eyeballs? Are there enough? This is the second homage piece to Hundertwasser and is more fanciful than the first. I love the streaming windows, an image one sees frequently in his work. Hundertwasser thought windows had "rights" ie the right to be prominent and the right to house trees which of course had rights too. Trees had the right to have a special floor all their own and windows just for their growth. Below is one of his sketches for how this might work:

"Slow Dance in the Moonlight" 18 X 36 acrylic on canvas

Sally Chupick and I continue to have our work on display at Frameworks gallery until April 25. On the weekend I had a happy surprise, an email from someone who had just purchased the painting above, the 5th one to sell since the show opened! I've never done this well before so I am pretty excited and of course motivated to do more. It has been a revelation to see what has sold and what hasn't. A couple of my favourites are still available (Red Hills, True North) and a couple that I wasn't even sure about showing, have sold. I had neglected to take a picture of one, being pretty sure it would be coming back home. So you just never know...
