Decaying Minerals

oil on canvas

25x18cm (9.8x7 in)

after a long break (too long) here's my latest painting :clap: more big ones coming, gone up in scale soo the paintings take longer to paint ;)

a hint ;) : this painting deals with the decaying of negative things, too show that decay can also be a positive thing. or like the alchemist Kirchweger put it "Decay is a wonderfull smith" (A.Kirchweger, "Aurea Catena", Homeri, 1781 :D

The reflection is done very well. I'm also intrigued by the "ground".

I like the mystery. The upper part static and dead, the bottom part smooth and alive...

I really like the reflections, i'm really eager to experiment with light and reflection at moment
if you don't mind me asking, wouldn't the decay and cracks also be reflected onto the green slightly?

I'm not that big on "concepts" as I think a painting should stand on it's own without explaination but I think the message is really good. I've never thought about it much but yes, negative things can waste away just as well as positive and that's a good thought. :)

me nither! I seldom tell of my "concepts" since they usually ruin the picture, but latly Ive been a bit down but this down-mood has slowly slowly fallen apart and decayed, which gave me the idea for this painting and i like the paradox of it all! abit like "doublethink" [link] if you read 1984 by George Orwell

I think this is one of my favorite paintings of yours... there's something about the colours you used, it's almost organic but with a non-organic contrast

wow i think this looks really nice, for starters i like the brush strokes you have used, it gives a nice texture across the canvas, nice colour scheme i mut say and personally i think its a nice balance in composition, just by quick looking at it, i can see a decay in colouring, cracks signified in the box like buildings. My favorite bit in the painting is the reflection, looks awesome. so nice work. keep it up. can't wait to see ome bigger paintings done by you. i currently have a 30" x 24" waiting to be painted on so...well check that out when i'm finshed :D

:bow: Thank you for the really nice comment :D interesting that you see the blocks as houses, its ment to be big blocks of stone but in imagination there are'nt any rules or borders :)

no problem my friend, yes i do find that interesting also, but as you've clearly stated, its my psyche that imagines or inteprets such a resemblence to a house.
