Captains of our own ship? I think it's autopilot from the get go. Though still mysterious.



















Also thought of ollld one from 199?- now new in that I just rotated it.

yeah and how people tend to be so busy we seemed to be in autopilot sometimes.. i luv the horizon in your illo tho - it seems that there is still hope for the human race. };-}

A done deal, and captains of a fate, long ago mapped out, just like in your painting; so safe, so comfy, and so free, free, free but all those paved roads. Maybe the "captain" takes the forgotten highway, or the old dirt road. I still come back to the layed out road in that scenario though. Cross-country on a horse or foot perhaps. Fantastic painting, and I can just look and look!

I'll come a bit later and comment on the second painting, after I straighten out my neck.

yes, Andy, captains of our own ship !!! this is a fact ...
love the blue and violet tones in contrast with the horizon .... but somehow you drew all as robots, it means we don't know anymore who we are or we go.

Thanks AVS. Looking worse and worse, but yeah- there's hope- I hope so.

Thanks Miri. Yeah- done deal- it's all mapped out- the rest is chance and discovery- of hopefully the the road that fits us best. Maybe also acceptance = freedom.

Thanks Luisa. It's the best of all possible worlds anyway.
Huggss to you.

More double brilliance from the Andyman. Always something to make one think--always much needed I think! Many are content to stay in autopilot, but for some, life is and adventure and a struggle to drive further and beyond.

I'm baaaack, and I've relocated mt neck. You look so relaxed, at ease, captain of your fate. Would be perfect if not for the fact that your world is upside down, at least to the onlooker, looks that way. You so look like the master of your fate. That pesky tombstone agrees with me I think upside down, but happy and free.

I really like what you did with the traffic and cars. A very nice composition and the colors are fine. It has a mysterious feel to it.

beautiful work Andy. I so love the top one for it's colors and mystery. I wonder where they're headed, all driving away from the sunrise. Or sunset? I imagine they're all exactly where they're supposed to be at the moment. As you said, autopilot!
This is the first time I haven't participated and it's killing me! I have a house guest, but besides, the word doesn't inspire me. You've made it look easy.

into the beach drove the 500
theirs is not to shriek and cry
ours is but grieve and sigh
little league little league little league on
all in the valley of debt rode the 500

Thanks Steve. Yeah- if we're lucky (or who knows, maybe it's unlucky)- we're able to go further.

Thanks Miri.
I try to be at least.
Upside down?- maybe it's a scene from China?
Sorry about the neck hahaha

Thanks Michael.

Thanks GZ - mysterious yeah.

Thanks Laurel. I always wonder where all the cars are going and where they're coming from- as well as the one I'm in. Yeah- exactly where they're supposed to be at any given moment.
Nice to have a house guest anyway (well depends). Yeah - odd word this week.
Look forward to your return to IF.

Coool Neil- can be a seemingly poorly planned, but brave battle. Ours is not to question why? Is this Tennyson?
