Love the colors; I get the impression that I could touch the shiny textures through the screen. Outstanding!

Beautifully conceived and composed. I wonder how you balanced spontaneity with such compositional surety.

NIKKI said...

I find this image very interesting and beautiful. The title heightens this interest; this is so good.

Fantastic piece. Makes me think of one of my favorites, Jean Arp.I wrote a ballad to him that dwells somewhere in the basement of this blog. It would be thrilling to see my poem next to your collage.

The colors and textures do grab the eye. It would look great in the FoS sidebar.
