    This is an holographic abstract indeed, which is a gorgeously simultaneous architectural, musical and painting artpiece! The eye is deceived perfectly and willingly by the incredible visual effects You got in this image.

    I admire you for creating this lovely abstract. The colors and blending of verticals items make it look so balanced, yet it is a beautiful and interesting abstract!

    I assume your string theory goes far beyond the theory that string can be useful to help ones shoes stay on their feet and into the much more interesting quantum mechanics of atoms and the Theory of Everything. The part of science I find extremely interesting. I just watched a documentary on quantum mechanics and I was lost in that rabbit hole for a few days.

    Since this is titled "String Theory Maybe?" then it changes it from an abstract to a perfectly representational - realism even - impression of a science so complicated that I have a difficult time wrapping my brain around it. A fantastic representational work of art Byron! Well done my friend!

    P.S. - After viewing your image and applying what microscopic knowledge I have of string theory to it, I decided to surf the net on quantum mechanics and string theory. I found an image that (not so suprisingly) looked like something that could live inside your painting. So you can take the "Maybe?" part out of the title. This is String Theory!

    Byron a beautiful piece, the colors are fantastic!. I especially like the interplay of the mechanical shapes and rectangles and the "space time" ripples on the surface it really adds a kind of depth. I did look at it full screen on my 24" monitor... certainly one of your best pieces that i have seen.

    Eating candy in the bathtub. What can it all mean? Pls don't answer this Byron. Kidding aside, wonderful abstract, and I love the textures both soft and rough. Excellent!

    . . .and seen from the other room on one foot while reciting Einstein, hahaha.

    What do you mean from a distance? Hahaha. If you want, I could go to another city. . . (oh right, already am in another city and the view is splendid from here. . .)

    Sorry. . . but I love it close up.

    I really very much like the wet-into-wet effect. Ads a whole new quality that says 'becoming', or out of the amorphous ethers came shapes. Also has an interactive quality (for the painter especially during the paint process) in which the 'accidental' quality is a participant in the creative process.

    Could refer to ideas, or something more. Artistically it's also very satisfying to see the usual hard edge, more or less flatly painted 2D graphic approach taking a new character. I believe the nature of one's technique itself in general says something. And this infers to me a looser, artistic comment -- art vs science. It says "theory". It's more inviting, more receptive to social interaction, more conversational. It invites meandering.

    And heck, I just happen to love how you have it working. This is top drawer, Byron. Really a fine piece by any standard. My favorite of yours. And I have enjoyed your work.

    Bravo!
