Okay, this has little to do with what you intended, no doubt, but to me it's like those long ago magic toy gags where you offer somebody a tubular can (today it would be roughly like a Pringles potato chip can only wider), and when they open it, a spring that is covered in a multi-colored fabric sleeve would pop out and into the air.

Well, combine that idea with some greeting cards where they cover it in confetti and streamers, and SURPRISE! Sort of party streamers on steroids. This one puts me in a festive mood. WOOOHOOO!!!!!!

for me it is much more elegant. that is the joy of abstract ideas the viewer bringing their own experience into the party.
I see this one as more refined with a definite cubist influence reminiscent of Picasso's work. Interesting how he could
whip out a quick sketch or a ceramic design and yet have it immediately recognizable as his. I think you may be approaching
that kind of ease of style which would certainly be lovely thing to have happen. Also a great deal of thought has into the color
play here to get just the right aesthetic going on. great stuff. Maybe a little Chagall in there too with a bit of Fraser's woo sheep.
