This time I really did set out to do an abstract. This is how it ended. I hope you like it!

I like it a lot! :) to me, it represents nature trying to get back all the space that was occupied by human civilisation .. the red beings on the left and right side (= nature) fighting with the human built structure in the background ... well done! :)

I agree with MSIE on interpretation. Nature, don't forget, is a bad master but kindest to the core. Lovely work; Congrats!

Neal... wow nice leap into the unknown.. MSIE and Wenkat really pegged the interpretation.. but as a pure painting it has great colors and great feel to it..very rich work.:):):cool::cool::cool:

A different path for you and one I like.....keep on exploring. Great palette.

I like this departure which shows a great taste as for the palette and the fluidity of of painted shapes.

got my attention. not sure why but it gave me an impression of some kind of spirit warfare. nice abstraction Neal. Even stronger if you avoid white in favor of really light hued grays. jmho. easier to print too.

Thanks for all the great comments! I'm glad I evoked some various interpretations and have learned something. One must be careful putting a title so as to not influence same.

LOL Neal putting titles on abstracts is an iffy proposition at best. and I have gone around and around on it myself... my current mental resting point is that it is ok to give the viewer a launching point literal or figuratively as to a direction or thought that inspired you. or what the work says to you. it seems to make people more at ease when they look.. even though they will then see other things depending on their personality, artistic maturity ( as a viewer ), time of day and phase of the moon...:p;)...

I like this a lot Neal, I see this great spirit bird in flight, begging to change the inviroment before it is to late, very well done:):):):):):):)
