Katie - I'm blown away - this is incredibly outstanding. Old gloopy is put to such good use here with a design, composition and wonderfully balanced colors that just comes together in a piece of magic. I love the painting - and it gives me oodles of ideas. :):):):)

Like a Chinese watercolor with some noodling. . . yet there's nothing wanton about these marks. Maybe chow fun. Maybe Thai. :D Okay, guess I'm hungry.

Wonderful rich colors. And the stylization of the trees is very appealing. It's moving a little into the abstract, which between the tool and the source style inspiration is actually a clever synthesis which alludes to the traditional and something new. I love it.

Very nice Ms. Coops. The verticality of it speaks of movement into the heavens. Sounds to me like an old theme that's still works as a design motif. Air and Earth and Wood, and I guess Metal too in that the surface feeling to me sort of gold or bronze adds that component. Probably some water in there too since a lot of these kinds of atmospheric things have clouds or mist, so implied floating water . . . All the elements are lifting very purposefully.

Anyway, the looping marks give it a bit of a grand dance feel to me. Again, you've done it up beautifully!

I totally agree with D Akey. I'm just not as good at painting words like he does.

It's very beautiful.

Lovely earth colors that make shapes just like we are finding daily around us... just to look carefully... and you did not just looked, you put them on your canvas. Very pleasant feeling, coops.

The colors are simply spectacular. There really is a sense of place-gloop, the gloopyland. Great fantasy Katie, I'd certainly like to walk and stroll casually in this almost magical place. A wonderful abstract painting, a masterpiece of image.:):):)
