hello pollockstheboll,
Your painting is very interesting and beautiful. For me it is a bit to difficult to understand it but obviously I would love it on my wall because colors composition is great. I can see day and night in your great painting.
all the best pollock.

It seems an angry painting. Well balanced color.
Is there a theme for the series?

Hello Pollock,
I've looked at your painting again and tried to understand it best I could. Yes, I agree with Makena. It is an angry painting and not only angry. I can see sadness , tears, depression, loss and some hope. I can see more disappointment then anger. In general it is screaming, searching for some kind of solution painting. I have to admit , that this style is very difficult for me to understand and if I am wrong, please let me know.
Love colors You used to show all emotions.
all the best pollockstheboll

Thank you for the feedback. It is funny how you can sometimes read people when you see what there paint. All the things you describe are so close, I hadn't even realized it.
Thanks

Well I think it's the dog's bollocks.

Brilliant!

Great colours and the transition from day to night is very subtle.

I see more day than night and will conclude that that is very positive on the premise that day/light is good and night/dark is evil, traditionally speaking of course.

And as I don't believe in pure good or pure bad your work is beautifully interspersed with shapes and colours of life, as it were.

Bollocks produce life!

Good point Nigel.
In my interpretation, I think, Pollock painted night like that to show not enough sleep. Being awake at night means depression in many cases. Day in this painting is very , very long and chaotic even.

I agree...I have had many sleepless nights with my bipolar bollocks.

Thank you Nigel, I think your interpretation is more in the lines of what I was thinking, although everyone sees differently.

I am really flattered that you like it and it made me feel the buzz to do some more.
Thanks

My pleasure. I try to help...sometimes it backfires...c'est la vie.

We work in a volatile industry where egos are bigger than the painting sometimes. But also, there are some beautiful people here too.

Being bipolar I am fascinated with opposites....dark/light, good/bad etc.

Can I suggest you create a similar styled work but the opposite effect, namely lots of night slowly moving into little light?
