My friend the up and coming South African artist Timothy Wood who paints under the name SAREJESS has just finished painting his reproduction of the great Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai’s masterpiece The Great Wave 🌊.

The Sarejessian

A few months ago I happen to see a program about the paintings of Japanese Artists at the time I thought “that is easy I can do That” I also thought of my friend in Canada Chris Milner who is on WordPress and of his love for things Asian.

Last week my friend Shirley Yates gave a framed print of a Chinese water color to her niece and I thought time to paint my reproduction of the great wave. So I did an observation about people and the silliest things they can say to an artist are

When they really don’t like your painting

“After all it is your painting”

When the painting confounds them.

“interesting ”

    Sometimes people is so afraid to look ignorant in front of a piece of art that come up with most ridiculous and popular expression when a simple “I don’t like it”,”I don’t understand it” would be better….sure more honest and constructive.

      Thanks, George.

      Nice to see you back on WordPress when you had been gone for a few days. 🙂

      My friend Daniel and I were discussing your story in the most recent comments on his latest mermaid story blog post.

      A comment I made caused Daniel to postulate an experiment DARPA might do in the future and I said, “Sounds like the story George is writing at the moment.” 😀

    Is a vampire in this painting, somehow subliminally?
