"Midnight At The Oasis..."


...Send your camel to bed.
Shadows paintin' our faces...
...Traces...of romance in our heads..."
~Written by David Nichtern 1974...sung by Maria Muldaur
(Format: 7" 45rpm ) LOL! :)
(Dang! I have been singing that song all day long! )
Okay...back to reality...I think...
...to present to you my Midnight Desert Mirage ATC Series...
Cards #1 & 2...of 6.

The world, indeed, is like a dream
and the treasures of the world are an alluring mirage!
Like the apparent distances in a picture,
things have no reality in themselves,
...they are like heat haze.”
~
Buddha

I love it when you grab a theme and paint with it. These are great.

Ann said...

Wonderful! I really like the paisley background and all those dots. These are glowing!

Alex said...

YAY!! Those spirals and dots are back! I've always liked those :)
And the background just fits perfectly. If these are printed on T-shirts, I'd wear them proudly everywhere I go :)

Wow! These have such a nice combination of pattern, texture and color. They're beautiful!

I love working on patterned paper! These are wonderful!

I saw Maria Muldaur way back in the early 80's and that song was already old. I think Steven Stills also played..man, he was so old he had no voice left! So how old does that make me?? LOL!!
And yes, I had the 45 too!

What gorgeous purples and greens! And the spiral moon is so cute.

Can I have these?

I don't deserve them, but they are fabulous.

Shadows paintin' our faces --- but with your paintings, it's like colors dancing all over our imagination. Love what you do with paint and design! Exquisite.

The background makes it look psychedelic! Great effect - and it's beautiful, in a dreamy way!

PAK ART said...

I think I love everything I've seen you paint or draw. Your choice of colors is exceptional.

3rdEyeMuse said...

oooh! there's such a wonderful dreaminess in the backgrounds of these!

ps - Chris totally deserves them, she just won't admit it ... and I bet if you twist her arm, she'd be more than willing to do a trade. :)
