I like it. And that from a composition freak who could argue for days about niky-tiky things that could make it better. ;)

Hi SJ, you are going to have to check out my textile thread in the art projects section!:)

S J Patterson,
This is exactly what I saw when I fell out of the tree that I was
climbing and landed on my head ... a 5 minute free form of pain
... and boy did I ever feel the flow! :eek: ;) :D (Just kidding!)

Seriously, love the spontaneity of the artwork, much vibrant energy
abounding in this piece. Well expressed and painted! :)

I really like that brush setting and the colors used here. It would be great to see some sort of suggestion of form to hold interest a bit longer. That's really pretty good abstract for such short time.

It shows your inner desire for peace, despite being an army man!! Cool!:)

Thanks to everyone here for your sincere encouragement.

Here is another picture I created in about 10 to 15 mins.

Alexandria, When I get chance to I will check out your suggested textile thread.
I am beginning to find that I am constantly stealing myself away from other obligations and commitments to sit alone and create pictures in ArtRage.

I can see my father shaking his head in disappointment right now.

Excellent SJ! Hey, I know what you mean. I have to draw late in the evening or in the morning, when I can steal away some time for me.:rolleyes::)

LOL poor dad :):)
Love the layering in the first piece and the second piece background is amazing.

S J Patterson,
"Plane" is very unique, excellent presentation with detailed ornate
background contrasting with the translucency of the plane. I
can sense the energy and a possibility of distress. The pilot seems
to be in retro nose dive mode so would you mind if I might
(metaphorically speaking!) implore this flight master to aim this
flying machine skyward or at the least suggest that he eject ...
with secured parachute of course! ;) Imaginative concept and well
painted! :)
