lovely effect. it looks very much like ink on silk. makes a nice abstract expression as well. your title immediately triggers for me the poem by Ezra Pound.

In a Station of the Metro
The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.
Ezra Pound

Thank you, screenpainter, for the perfect imagist poem ... if only the painting could rise to the occasion :):)
