    Gorgeous! So cool and with a hint of realism tucked into it, you can almost smell the pine needles.

    I have long suspected that your work is rooted in realistic images. The Waltz and the Blue Dog come immediately to mind.

    Yeah, I agree with the others who are noting that realism is seeping back in a wee bit. Like you have a foot in both worlds. Of course, if you were a centipede, you could have maybe 27 feet in one world, and 73 in the other unless I miss my calculations. Or maybe it could be where you have as few as 1 foot in 100 worlds etc. . . . And then were you a millipede. . . well, you can see that being bipedal really helps to simplify and thus allows the Hokey Pokey and other dances to be less about the math and more about the binary expression. I like it!

    I like the collage-type effect of lines, colors, and shapes. My first impression of the picture was feeling like I was looking at a windshield of a car driving past a landscape of a pine and mountains, but that's just me. A very nice piece. Thanks for sharing!
