What Do You See?

…while we look not at the things which are seen, 
but at the things which are not seen;
 for the things which are seen are temporal, 
but the things which are not seen are eternal. 

~2 Corinthians 4:18 (NASB)

(From top to bottom – photo shopped design in sepia tones with a torn border and defined by a black flood fill. The middle design is the photo shop negative image of the top design with the same torn border and flood bill design. The bottom design is the original abstract watercolor painting done in 2008 on cold press paper, 11 x 14 inches.)

Please share your comments on what you see, I know what I see in this painting and what it speaks to me.  But I am curious what others might see?

    1. Very cool visual Dorothy! As stated below I have always seen a profile of a Native America with a feathered headdress (looking left) who is doing a war cry!

  1. Wow Dorothy! That is great, I have never seen that but will sit and stare to see what I can. I love the middle one also, the blues to me are simply mesmerizing! I will let you know what I see in a later comment. 🙂

      1. Woot! 😀 (It was my first thought, but I could also see the other faces that said-simply saw and the foal’s nose that Dorothy saw as well…it’s like finding shapes in the clouds!)

  3. Love all the perceptions on this abstract piece. From the moment this was created I have always seen exactly what Danielle says – a profile of a Native America with a feathered headdress (looking left) who is doing a war cry!
