    Almost soothing, in a holiday sort of way!
    But, Pete!
    I think they want you to stop staring through their windows,
    and come in and buy something!
    I like and get it!
    Take Care,
    Steve

    I like your cryptic descriptions, they make you see things you might never have imagined otherwise!

    Cool

    It reminds me of Harris Tweed tartan which is very cosy

    Thanks for the kind comments ... I was hoping the title and the image together would show a memory of window-shopping on a snowy evening when all is a bright blur of anti-rainbow refractions ...

    Cool. I tend not to do window shopping in general, and never in the snow, except when I was shopping for a hanging slab of caribou during the gold rush.

    However, all seriousness aside, it's a very cool image, and I get what you're after. I think it's a bit of a reach for me anyway, to fall upon that particular association seeing as it's so vastly abstract. But paint on! It made for a neat graphic. It definitely feels luminous and colorful and two out of three ain't bad. Has a Rothko feel, if he had expanded his palette. But it has a similar presence.
