The Dawn Comes Up Like Thunder

Like Thunder ‘Crost the Bay

acrylic on canvas

30 X 40 in.


And the verse from the poem  Mandalay by Kipling goes (for anyone who might have somehow missed it in their discovery of English literature)

“On the Road to Mandalay,

Where the flying fishes play,

An’ the dawn comes up like thunder outer China ‘crost the Bay!”

  1. wow! i saw this morning over our hill. you captured the feeling and the color for me. I love it!! how are you?

  2. Beautiful! It’s an apt illustration for that great verse!

  3. This is beautiful! The colors are powerful and delicate at the same time, and I love the nuances.

  4. I really like this; there is something so neat about color that just inspires emotion. Amazing how well this worked! I’m totally blown away. It’s a bit like organized chaos – that inspires in the same way a sunset does. Really breathtaking. (I think you once agian produced a winner there!)

  5. I love the passion of this piece! 🙂

  6. this is great, love the colours, so powerfull.
    the white on the middle with all the other colours around makes a great illusion.

    beautiful work!=)
