    Some juicy looking creepy-crawlies here! But as you say, it's the foundation of a brave new world. The triangular shape is not yet complete.

    i love your pieces gxhpainter. There is so much to feed the eye, both the outer one and the inner one.

    Childlike.

    Very interesting how an abstract can draw such associations for me. I get an impression and ask myself why I get that hit. Qualities of bright unmixed color, and toothyness of crayon seem to stand out most prominently for me. The individual bits speak to me more so that an overall unity. I think of a puzzle and I'm still trying to ferret out the question, which in itself could be considered pretty profound, considering the life process beginning with a wide-eyed kid. My dad used to ask me when I was like 5 or so what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said, "I dunno". Nowadays I've graduated to "How the hell should I know. Quit asking me dad. . . I know you left the planet over a decade ago. Let up, can't you? I wanna be a cowboy, okay?" But I digress. . .

    That's how I find my mind going with this one.

    LOL your comments are a delight as usual, and although humorous very on target, I was aiming to get the primary, initial stages of form and color on its way to becoming something when it grew up. This because I was recently reading a scientific article on the advances in synthetic biology.
