Weekly Gallery Chat – David Hockney

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “


David Hockney’s spacious sunlit clear tableaus always left a question mark in the viewers mind…who lived there…where were they …what had just happened in those pool filled  landscapes?





He  easily captures the heat filled California afternoon, still there is something else that lingers waiting,


A series of ethereally common experiences of life, a slice of quiet knowing cloudscape that portends death and life simultaneously,



Summers just a breath away…


(where or where is that itsy, bitsy, tinnie, winnie, yellow  polka dot bikini , of mine???)


Happy Friday!




Check out his photography as well!
