Love it. I really like the colors and shapes and all the first read stuff. It feels polished.

It's like talking to old friends the structure often of which contains similarity, one conversation to the next, reminiscing with variations on the stories, with certain bits getting told and others not needing to be voiced, but which are understood and completed none the less.

And I suppose those old stories take on a life of their own, and perhaps a body form as well, were an artist such as yourself to give it a portrait.

Sandy and MSIE... thanks and a hat tip ;)... glad you don't my launching a work based on inspiration from yours..

Neal... yes sticking to a single ( more or less ) color dominance has a powerful effect on an abstract.. not something I have pursued much but I am seeing the power of it... hmmmm..:):):)

DAkey.. such a wonderful expression of my painters intent on this.. so cool you can verbalize what is wandering around in my head..;):):):D a graphical take on the idea that individuals have a mental-emotional vibe that in native american terms was translated to some animal icon, or a musical type that suits.. and the shared space between old friends has a mental emotional body of its own..
