Reworked @scallopsrgreat’s painting and gave it a name: WAR.
Because we all love stories about people behaving badly:
Postal tracking shows the (rolled) painting has arrived at the office of Ungrateful Oik. Although I emailed him instructions for unrolling and mounting the artwork, he has not replied nor has he bothered to thank me for this gift, worth over 1500 pounds British sterling.
The painting was made to his specifications about size, colors, et cetera and he had said before (back when he was speaking to me) that he absolutely loved it.
I’ve seen him online, tweeting to other people, but ignoring me.
He’s a public figure. I’m tempted to reveal his name. Oik.
(Edited to add: I did reveal it. Here’s the entire story.)
I like the delicate lines and almost ghostly color palette.
Also like this reaction from one of my followers:
That’s so sensuous. Feet on hard pebbles. Faint sulphur taste. Cold cold water. Imagined. Dreamed. Felt.

Louise Weinberg has a site here. Do have a look at her other works.
Still working on the underlayers of Dislocation. Here’s a better photo than the one I took last night.
It can be hard to think of a good title. So hard that it’s tempting to just not title it at all and let the viewer make up their own mind what the painting is about. This was really popular during the Minimalist movement in the 1970s.
A painting is a magic hat.
I may put a rabbit in the hat, but someone might pull out a peacock or a platypus.
What other people get out of it isn’t always the same as what I put in.
That’s part of the magic.
