In the beginning ...

Crystal Ball, originally uploaded by nominally_challenged.

In the spirit of my decision to share some of my paintings with the blogosphere, here is my first offering.

I've called this "Creation", though it needn't be called that, and in using that name, I am not necessarily making any theological points. It's just that the background scene seemed very idyllic and Eden-like, and there's something 'creationary' to it, in my mind.

I could, of course, be wrong.

It's up to the beholder(s) (i.e., you people) to decide.

Or not to decide.

Or just to say: "that's a fat load of dingo's kidneys".

I'm in love with your painting! Can I say dingo kidneys anyway? --wow what an awesome expletive, gotta file that one away! :)

LOL Yael - thanks. I have to give credit where it's due, though. 'Not worth a pair of dingo's kidneys' was coined by the Late Great Douglas Adams (I'm sure someone else can provide me with chapter and verse on that one, but I'm pretty sure it was in H2G2).

Lynne thanks also! It's very encouraging to get these sorts of comments :)

And Tif, ok already! I'm on to it :) :) :)

Thanks John!

Drima, thanks also, for stopping by again and for the comment :-)

I'm somewhat chuffed that so far no-one thinks the painting's a fat load of dingo's kidneys ...
