Illusion is the first of all pleasures – Oscar Wilde
Painting by clinock. 20″ x 30″. Acrylic on canvas. 2013.
This is great, I love it! What beautiful colours!
Happy Valentines to you Ina – I thought the Oscar quote was somewhat appropriate for the day…
Interesting painting, with lots to ponder. It feels like conscious and subconscious minds. Gorgeous blues and golds.
Got me pondering for sure – Thank you Philippa…
Would like you to do another guest post soon. Save this one a part of it OK?
OK I will and I would be honoured Carl – thank you – send me a timeline…
John, your Muse wastes no time. A very exciting painting…or illusion of a painting….and we know what that means.
“Ceci n’est pas une pipe” – Merci beaucoup Robert…
I love this and the quote is perfect for it
Very much appreciated Judy – thank you…
Great quote. I love this painting. So well done. I love how the face seems to be materializing or emerging. Makes me think of the Wizard of Oz.
You’ll find he is a whiz of a Wiz! If ever a Wiz! there was. Thank you for your always supportive comments Terry – now – if I only had a brain!
So it is!!!!
Amazing painting, John!
Too kind Marina – many, many thanks…
Wow– love this and Oscar
Thought for a minute you were referring to the face as Oscar – being as it does look a little grouchy and all – thanks Gary…
I really like this! Love the colors and Oscar Wilde.
Thank you CC – the colours I can take credit for – Oscar just supplies the gin…
I love this one. As a layperson, I’d say it has huge life power!
“huge life power” I really like that Carl – thank you…
really great color
Love how the title works so well with the image. For some reason I”m reminded of Van Gogh’s painting with his bandaged ear. But this seems like a Jungian, surreal dream escaping from the (blue?) man’s mind. I’m wondering if he is still in ‘pleasure mode’ or ‘post pleasure mode.’ Or something else entirely that escapes me.
The dream edge of pleasure / post pleasure – all illusion whichever way one looks at it – thank you Steven for spending time…
