Well, this is gawjus. I feel the power of the sea and the waves crashing against the rocks. I love the sky. You caught the light in your wave. Now, I hate saying this, but I know you want an honest critique, as I would, so I have to tell you your big wave looks rather staid. It needs more fluidity. ...

Pauline - you could have just said 'nop' - but on the other hand this does seem to have woken you up :) It certainly did. :) I guarantee if I performed this I could get the whole room rocking.

Re: The Onlie Begetter

Whaaaaat???? Sorry, but what on earth does this offer? Its the alphabet. Where's the emotion? The atmosphere?. The colours, and movement. The story? Where's the poetry? Holy Jayzus! Unless I'm totally ignorant, I got absolutely nothing from this piece. If the hint is in the title it still reads like...

Re: Drifted Away

I am so sorry Ross.
Please ignore my previous posts.
How condescending do I come across.
That honestly was not how I meant to portray my message.
All I wanted to say was your video did not come across as a confident piece.
Sorry for being an arse.

Sorry you didn't like it Pauline, if it sucks it sucks. It doesn't suck Ross. What sucks is your can't be arsed approach to it. This was recorded years ago. I'm in my 70's now, no longer creative except for the very occasional poem. Ross, age is just a number. You have a creative mind, use it. I've...

Re: Lindisfarne

Wow, wow, wow !!! Love it. I don’t know where to start. Ok, colours are gawjus. I particularly love the foreground rocks. The pink/red/ orange rock, the blue/green and the ochre rock pull me towards them every time my eyes start to wander away to explore. There’s a lot of movement in this painting. ...

Re: Blue steel

Hi Ross. I like the slightly naive feel of it, also the drama of the sea and sky. Thanks for that :) But the bridge is my least fav. part, it looks too much like something drawn with a ruler and stylistically it is at odds with the rest of the painting. I fully understand this is not everyone's flav...

Re: Blue steel

Wonderful sky, magnificent bridge (and very clever) with a touch of Lowery in the background. :D Cheers JJ. The sky was a good 2 thirds of the painting. I needed that as a backdrop for this piece. I purposely kept the buildings simple as I wanted this to be about the bridge. I felt it would be a st...

Whichever angle you look at at this.
As long as you get something from it I'm pleased.
Thanks for taking the time to look at it and comment.

You haven't posted any of your painting for a while.
I look forward to seeing what you have been up to.
Thanks again :D

I kept the buildings simple as its all about the bridge.
I stitched it on in blue wool as I wanted it to stand proud and I also thought it would add strength to the structure.

Re: Ghost Town

An untravelled road leads me past pale skulls of herbivores and dry tumble-weed rolls the streets. Black eyed stores from a bygone age stand silent. There’s no spirit left beneath the dust. The bar stands silent though shades sit in every chair. The world has moved on. A weary sun sets, dragging the...

Re: Thorns

Hmmm. Not mad keen on the layout of this. A running sentence/thought clipped posing as a poem. The line breaks do not work for me nor the lack of punctuation. There is no movement. I sense the emotion behind this but the delivery falls short. Sorry Mac, just being honest. I feel you could do so much...

My poems are almost always eclipsed by the stories that go with them. I need to sort that out.
So don't tell the stories.
Let your poems stand alone. :D
I'll come back to your poem shortly.
I won't try to rewrite it. :lol:
