It seems a quite elegant and exclusive carnival indeed, so fascinating and controlled is the palette here!

Thanks Caesar... I did this right after doing "the Devouring spirit"... it may not be the best statement for a qualitative life... but I was moved by watch families and children play at the local carnival with all it's noisy, whirring's and bright colors and music...on a warm summer evening....;);):D:D

Gary, would you mind if I said it reminds me of a picnic (I don't like carnivals :D ), I can see the old quilt spread on the ground, the watermelon just sitting there along withhotdogs in their buns , a bowl of potato salad and oh so many other goodies :D

Oh yes the fun of summers. The last time I had a ride, I was in my 40s, the colors I saw was all jumbled, but this painting makes me want to ride again!!!!;)

Another great abstract here! Your really have the ability to make the eye move between color, line and texture!

BTW, For my money, the faux framing addition could be left out -- its more of a distraction than an enhancement

Sandy, Pat... thanks for your welcome comments.

alkratzer - yes I agree the "frame" is a distraction on this one , it was an experiment that did not work on this work..... thanks for letting me know what you thought... always appreciate that..;);)
