    From me you get a big check, mate.

    Love it. And I think you'll get a lot of interest based on the title alone. Chess people, many of them, love that their passion is shared. Remember when the band Yes came out with that song that used lots of Chess imagery? I remember Casey Kasem on his radio broadcast would comment on whatever song he was playing before he played it. I distinctly recall the Chess reference for that song. I think he said it was unique in Rock and Roll up to that time. So it did get that shout out and got a little bit of publicity as a result.

    The image is really clean and I very much like their relationship of colors, shape and all that. You got a winner here.

    Thanks my friend for your great comments on this, and yes I have gotten a lot of likes and some nice comments via Instagram.. I don't play chess anymore
    but I played a lot in high school and college and belonged to the chess club... I was definitely a nerd in high school!..

    Lots of possibilities in this game!

    The suggestion of pieces and board is very interesting! I play chess on my iPad everyday and keep the level of difficulty low enough that I can win!

    OK, I cannot duplicate DAkey comment about the game phase, but You certainly generated an artful comics with Your various experimental "vignettes", creating different places and times of Your painting history. Well done!
    Panta rei (everything flows)!
