  1. Sorry to hear that you are feeling so poorly. But I’m so glad to know that you are painting, when you are able. This piece is so full of emotion, expression. I’m particularly fond of the detail. Hope tomorrow is a very good day.

  2. I like this one, but it has a dark and foreboding tone to it, as if the shepherd has to get his sheep to shelter before the storm arrives.

    1. The tone of our weather my friend thank you and good day, we had a severe wind storm here, but it was worse up in the shepherd land, it still is.

      1. Thx, Doron. The yupo is a welcome change. I want to try something different just for a challenge. Now my entire art group that I paint with is converting to yupo. It will be interesting to observe the result!

        1. Marian that sound like great convertion and when I visit your Blog I am amazed how beautiful is your work. It only thanks to people like yourself that those experiment encrouge us to try something new, enjoy and thanks for visiting me ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. The little figure battling through those brush strokes of driving rain is lovely Doron . I’ve enjoyed looking at in the comfort of my home with the sun shining ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Poppy thank you very much. Yes bad conditions out there for those brave shepherds, hope you will enjoy many more sunny days, but no doubt either way you will give us some grest work and pictures whatever the weather will be. Sorry I am not very communicative in recent months. xx

      1. You are not in the robust of health Doron so totally understand you coming and going . … so It’s always a pleasure to see your new work when things are brighter ๐Ÿ™‚
        Much appreciate your kind words here x

    1. Although it is a walk into the unknown and scary venture I can assure you to look after you all the way as it will be a safe journey xxx

  4. Storm at sea? Mountain landscape? Someone riding on the back of an amazing bird? Who know, Doron … but the colours are super and the whole thing kinda draws you in. All power to you.

    1. Thanks John, it is a great journey which I am enjoying and feel very privilege to take you all while I get swept away on a road of adventure in a life time exploring some of the beauty of our nicer world full of subjects in colours with the great company of friends like yourself. Thank you for being part of it.

    1. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I just enjoy feeling free, loose and expresive here… I can feel the fresh air the sound and smell of the landscape walk of the shepherd with all his valuable treasured friends all he ever poses in the open space against the elements. I can even hear him palying the flute for his dancing sheep… what an amazing true life… X

  5. PS My work is what they call “hovering between figurative and abstraction” when I really paint. I am comfortable that way. I love abstraction because it considers the entire rectangle or square or circle (surface of the canvas or paper) and I like figurative because I like to somewhat tell a story. That is probably why this one appeals to me.

    1. That is something else we have in common, I just enjoy abstract more and more…. I love to see more work of yours my friend! Thanks for taking time to comment on my work it is well appreciated xxx

        1. Hollis that is very kind of you to offer me a preview, I love to see your work. I actually understand what you say on completely happy. I mention on my web that it is a journey and I always nearly shown everything so I can get fair criticism so i can develop and improve. I have some recent work that I never shared here I know some of it is much better in my eye, but I try to work on some stronger language that is more me. I think that is why it will be so much interesting for me to see your work, someone who is more accopmlish and have their own style and identity. Thank you.

  6. I adore your more abstract paintings! This one is particularly delicious. The mood and space created by the lighting on top is great.

    1. Thank you that is very kind…. I think it is the direction I am taking for my latest bigger work, as I also like it and it is more expressive which I prefer.
