turmoil if you must

oils on canvas on board painted by srs in 1998 I think -- untitled, but call it TURMOIL if you must call it anything

An earlier work (1998 or thereabouts) and not one I like very much, but it's here for the sake of completeness. Oils on canvas on board, 30.5 x 39.5cm, untitled but call it turmoil if you must call it anything. Given to CAS.

Hey Steve! I'm following Cosmic Rapture now from Google reader, so it won't be as easy to ignore you as I have Facebook since its new format took over. Anyway, the coloration of Turmoil is still chaotic!

Hi Karen, yes I'm struggling with the new FB myself. Pain in the proverbial.

Thanks for stopping by: I was beginning to feel quite deserted!

This is great! The image in the left corner initially looked like a Godzilla head to me and I thought of Godzilla destroying Tokyo!

Faycin, Godzilla works for me! Always has done, hope ze always will.

I've admitted/confessed somewhere my total inability to draw. So phrases like "...initially looked like..." are music to my ears. Thank You!
