I've entered "Untitled Gray" in the SAATCHI SHOWDOWN round that runs this week, from May 19 - 26. Can you please take a minute to give my painting your vote? Thanks to all of you who have taken the time to vote in the past.

On most days, the site loads quite fast, and the voting takes just a second! Thanks again for your support! Wishing you all a productive week and sunny skies.

  1. Voted for you again. :) Good luck!

  2. That's a beautiful piece Lynda - the different tones are outstanding. To me it has a Native feel. Wonderful.

  3. So happy to find your site...lovely work ..I will browse through it...and come back again...cheers.

  4. Oh I figured out how to vote for you too!!

  5. Amazing, you are a very talented person. I saw your other paintings too they are superb. Will vote for you.

    Thanks for the visit to my site and for your kind comment.

  6. Took the opportunity to vote for YOU, Lynda--and delighted to do so! I continue to be amazed and in awe of all that you have accomplished!

  7. oh I really love this Lynda...
    I have such a weakness for monochromatic work....
    the design and composition is brilliant...
    I tried to get into the Saatchi site but as usual it just won't let my computer in grrrr!!!
    and to think I'm a member there !!!
    oh well maybe one day a miracle may happen.... ;)

  8. I voted for you, Lynda. :D What beautiful artwork. It has such fantastic images and lines!!! Perfect.

    Hugs, JJ

  9. Oh Lynda,
    I love it. It reminds me very much of one of my faves among the greats.

    I love Kandinsky!!

    We just started rolling again and blogging is impossible while bouncing down this road.

    I will come back late this evening and try to get a vote in.


  10. I gave it the highest rating, and it's very deserving ... I like it a lot.

  11. Lana, thank you for voting! Glad to see you, as well!

    Janice, I think it looks primitive and yet surreal in some way. I usually paint in bright colors but in this painting I worked with values instead. I may do a series of these, as it's good discipline for me.

    island rambles, i'm glad to have found your blog, as well! and thanks for your vote!

  12. indrani, now it is YOU who are being kind! thank you for the WONDERFUL compliment! and for voting.... :)

    Kim, I had an easier time than usual getting on there. Although sometimes the site is so busy that it's infuriating. I like the monochromatic too, because it has a purity that makes line and form stand out, much like B & W photography. Color is a joy, but it seems to take over a composition, much of the time!

  13. Evlahos, laughingwolf, and JJ, thank you very much for your support! So many people enter that it would be almost impossible to win--the odds are so against it--but it brings some additional exposure to our galleries there at Saatchi.

  14. Jackie, thank you for stopping over and for the reference to Kandinsky! He has always been one of my favorites, as well. He and Paul Klee are among many painters whose work I like, but I've loved Klee and Kandinsky since I was in college!

  15. franscud and oswegan, thank you both for stopping by and commenting!!

  16. Kia ora lynda,
    I voted for your work. It has a very New Zealand appeal to my limited art sense, almost a Maori flow through it. Very cool. Kia ora!
    Ka kite ano,

  17. Wow, that's a cool image. Yes I'll vote.

    thanks for your visit.

  18. Voted :) It is a lovely piece, so I hope you WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. this is nice...but it could be more colorful..

  20. probably too late now - good luck. I have a bit overwhelmed with work and reading.
    all the best!

  21. LYNDA:

    Okay, I love it, so I voted a solid 10!

    Super work, as always.

    Have a nice day.

  22. Awesome Lynda, voted, excellent work.

  23. hi lynda what a fortune to discover u. saw your work. loved it. like u i love this earth. spirituality is our inner strength.i m really happy to b here.

  24. hi once again
    do i have the permission of creating a link for this blog in mine?

  25. Robb - Thanks for voting for my painting. Abstracts evoke such different things for different people. That's why I enjoy doing them. Thanks for the visit!

    Sandy - Thank YOU for voting, as well!

    Jafabrit - I didn't win, and didn't expect to, as there is just one winner out of hundreds of entries. Maybe thousands, who knows? They have gotten so large....But it's good exposure for the portfolios at Saatchi!

  26. Shooting Star - This painting is intentionally monochromatic. Most of my paintings are VERY colorful, but this one was intended as a work more in values, than in color. Thanks for stopping by!

    Kriz, thanks for your visit. Don't worry about it... :) I'm always overwhelmed, myself!

  27. Swubird and Bob - Thanks for your support and votes. I'm late in getting around again, but I will appear on your pages in short order!

  28. jyotsana - It's nice to meet you. Of course you can give me a link on your blog. I enjoyed the article I read there this morning, and have put your link on my page! :)

    I always take comfort from talking to other people who love and value our Earth!

  29. I have entered twice and lost twice lol! but it is worth a try.

  31. Hi! Just popped over to see how you went and to thank you for being supportive during the last 12 months. Take Care - Peter

  32. I didn't get here in time to see this beautiful piece of art and is beautiful!

  33. Awesome!

    Oil or Acrylic? like it much! I do have paintings on my site but those currently posted there are by watercolor. I've scheduled paintings of when to be posted actually.

    Anyway, i like this one so much! at first glance, i saw two people and a dog. i like how you merge images together.

    Keep it up!

  34. Ethel Grace - Thanks for your kind words and for visiting my blog! Nice to meet you. I'll have to stop over and see your work. :)
