IF-Warning








There are times when our own wanting safety blinds us from seeing and hearing the warning signs that try to keep us safe.

Thanks for sharing your thought process, messy but oh, so beautiful- both in technique and content. I like the fact that it is linear, but also shows a lot of revision and a bit of doubt. Robert Hughes once referred to Paul Klee as the "Genius of Doubt." I think you are one as well, Bill.

Fantastic! I love the colors you used, and the cones, gosh I like those a lot. Great work.

I love the concept,the cones and the angels and the reference to the fool of the tarot deck. Nice gradation of color from warm to cool.

Wonderful illo, Bill! (And so true.) But, it's the innocence of the Fool that keeps us moving forward despite the intemperance and absurdity of life, provided we can enjoy the freefall rather than expect a soft landing.
