Lily Pad or Pac Man?



Untitled by Cole Scott   2012


My husband took this shot late summer but just recently posted it so it is new to me.  I had to ask him what is the object captured?.  I initially viewed it as an abstract water color style shot of something unknown.  He said it was a lily pad in a little pond he was paddling.  I think it's startling!  It reminds me of something the fabulous Bauhaus artist, Paul Klee, might have painted.  

Or a Pac Man.  

What do you think?

Hi! C.G...
I agree with you, it do look like [the type] Of abstract art that artist Paul Klee, would have created...

i think it is really cool...the blue whispiness of it add a mysterious element and the yellow lily pads jump right out at you...

Truly stunning in an ethereal way! I love Klee's work, but Scott's has a sensitivity and purity that has its own aesthetic. Just MARVELOUS!

DeeDee, thank you. In another time (and with a lot more money), I'd have been a patron of the arts.

Brian, I honestly did not know what it is which made it all the more intriguing.

California Girl said...

Ethereal is a lovely description. I thought of Klee immediately ...oh, and Pac Man. :)

It is totally lovely, and I intuited it as a lily pad, since I've seen these before. Thank you for sharing it!

California Girl said...

DJan, you're smarter than I am...and I've gone paddling with him!

It's D-Day today Jan. Or, is it V-Day?

Just imagine a line of them racing along a grid ready to gobble you up. Oh, its ages since I played that game.
