      • This is me. An old fart strolling around thinking about what to paint next. That snake symbolizes the carnival of bad thoughts and regrets intruding. The balloons a metaphor for all my hopes and dreams held aloft by hot air. In the jet is my estranged S.O.B. step-father I haven't seen in years. And for very good reasons. Beautiful job. Seriously... nicely done. I'm sure you have your own meanings behind it all. : )
      • Thanks, Rob. Great interpretation. I find the old man just oblivious enough to still enjoy his day.
      • There's a lot to be said for obliviousness
      • Thanks, Gumster. Yes indeed, I would agree. All sorts of words like "run..." come to mind.
      • Hey RobbNewman, I Like your story that goes with Hidden's chop. Peaceful chop.
      • The more I look at it the more I think the snake is asking him something and he is telling it to be patient.
      • Thanks very much, Hobbit. I too find the image has an element of peacefulness about it. Peaceful but on the verge of chaos I think.
      • Love the atmosphere and the symbols. After that everyone cn give his own interpretation.
      • thanks, Joan, Eric, Swash, and Lu. Yes, Lu. Sort of a "Keep Calm" and "...." fill in the blank chop.
      • Thanks, Andrew. Just Short. I had a sea serpent with a kernel of corn for it's eye...Guess maybe I should have thrown that fellow in too. Maybe next time.
      • Gallery quality, man. Shrug. Sea serpents are cool. If it wants in, let it. That is my policy Top 5 congrats
      • Top 5 congrats Splat.There is some serious competition going on.
      • Thanks AndWhat. Thanks, Gummy. Thanks, Hit-man...Good advice. Great contest with a number of tough images to compete against. I "should be" happy with my finish...grrrr
