    Not quite accessible to me, but glad you enjoyed it. I was looking for something to grab onto in this one but there's really no handle I can grab based on the criteria I value as graceful or thought provoking or what have you. Doesn't mean it's not there. But for me it's a bit remote. Hopefully others will see the good of it and comment. You have 2 in the plus column already.

    thanks D Akey, not every abstract I expect to appeal to everyone, this one was an experiment in pushing geometric forms onto some colorful loose expressive lines and textures..

    I can't elaborate too much on this impression I got, but I found this painting the most fully, intregrally "American" (US) speaking kind of artpiece You showed so far. To me it talks of what used to be the American style of life and perceptions, of shining, chome, finned cars and McDonalds, and commercial ads, music superstars attires etc.... Maybe the building blocks of the American dream all over the last century. It provides a burst of optimism.
