Caesar, Maryiln Anne, and jmac thanks I am please you like this experiment. I am happy with the result and may pursue this style a bit more. It has a subtle simplicity that still has some good eye catching qualities. right now I am really liking the use of flat color areas with very little blending, etc ( like oil paint) and am drawn to a more flat print like approach.

I really like this one. It generally speaks of order out of chaos. Besides that it's attractive in appearance. I like the colors you've chosen. It feels harmonious, in a world where the jigsaw puzzle pieces don't necessarily fit, we have peaceful co-existence. Going back to your other idea of a down shot on a city grid, here too when seen from enough altitude and the groupings become more dominant over the individual, there appears an overall form and structure, despite it not being a rigid mathematical fit. These bits aren't wildly torn into extremely different shapes. There's still order with some room for individuality, but generally following the same concept. With some diversity and some commonality, this feels more like an idyllic artist's colony rather than an edgy urban matrix.

Anyway, my take today. Maybe tomorrow I would relate differently. But I quite like it.
