His early work of bridges and so forth notorious for the lack of figures, guessing it was something he had problems with regardless of the ball and chain. :tea:

Ronald Davis (b.1937) describes himself as an artists, geometrician, and abstract illusionist. This one, Arch Duo and Vented Star, 1976, looks like trippy farm machinery to me.

This painting is actually making fun of people. :biggrin:
"The Americans from the North, at least the great part of those I have seen, eat only salted meat, bread made by themselves out of corn meal, coffee, and homemade cheese. To these the greater part...add strong liquor, for they are in general, in my opinion, lazy people of vicious character. " --José María Sánchez ~1827
