i like it!

i see birds and leaves and almost something warm...fire,sun....

i like it bc of all the things i can see inside whether intentional or not...

was there some representation forms you intentionall included or wanted us to focus on?

i see kelp, but it's really brighter than that, but it makes me think of plants flowing under the current of a stream.

i am planning on a little visit to dick blick today so i can expand my pastel collection...i have water soluble ones so i will also buy some learning grade others...as a medium they work better for me as there is no set up...paints take more time and with my family and work, time is of the essence...thanks for your reply..it means a lot...:)

I see flowers, fire, wind and water. I think the colors and theme are bold. Your work seems very original. Keep it up:)
