Come Sail Away

1,662-8-215 ... A detail from a painting that I created before the Rocky Mountains were formed. ... Grin. ... No date on it. ... Probably in the 1960's when I was in college at Iowa State University. ... I swear I never did any kind of drugs, not even marijuana ... but this would seem to suggest otherwise.


As best I can recall ... after some 40 plus years ... I created it by pouring various colors of paint onto a scrap of hardboard that was laying flat. ... Whether by serendipity or on purpose, they were also different TYPES of paint ... so that they repelled each other instead of blending. ... This created interesting intricate patterns. ... View large size and also see the views below.


My old 2.1 megapixel camera could not capture the detail in the view of the whole painting, so I took some close up views to show the intricate patterns.


14" X 26" on hardboard (aka Masonite) ... smooth side.


Camera: Sony MVC-CD1000, 2.1 megapixel (antique)


Software: "Adobe Photo Deluxe Home Edition 3.0" which came free with a scanner circa 1999.
