    Weeeeellllllll pard, just plain folks get befuddled by such an opening. It takes a long time to ponder a reasonable gambit especially if you don't use a timer. They're afraid of getting rooked and have to pawn their valuables.

    I think it looks great. I actually really like it. It's brilliant. Love the angles and the containment of activity within the rectangles.

    Knight to Bishop 3. I'll be back in a couple days for your next move.

    It is intesting

    I feel like the painting behind the hard edge really is there so I feel like my view is being obstructed. However, I think that is part of the intrigue.

    Thanks Marilyn, yours is an accurate observation. I decided on this partially based on walking in town where the hard edges of building obscure views to the mountains, park etc. It is part real view of the city and part metaphor how the "hard edges" of our ideas and preconceptions obscure the view of the totality of life.... anyway thanks for your frank comment it is very appreciated.

    Stunning colour combinations. Like looking through a screen with cutouts to the rich scene beyond. Clever!
