MY COMMENTS:
I did this for CMT awareness week. I wanted the darkness of the thorns to contrast with the vibrant colours as a symbolic reference to how even though this disabilitating disease influences (my) life, it should not be the focus of it.

I worked mainly in watercolour but also used Stylefile markers, coloured pencils and microns.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
IŽd appreciate any and all constructive feedback :)

I like this a lot. I immediately thought of sunflowers expressing all the joys and colors of life, with almost a SW sort of feeling and then noticed the thorns which reminded me of a rose briar where the flowers are so pretty but you don't dare stick your hand in too far without risking the pain. So I think your symbolism works with this. It's a lovely painting.. don't change anything about it. :)

Yes, I see this as a poster, colorful, vibrant, a background awareness of your cause.

So detailed, spheres are happily spherical!

This reminds me of the gears of a clock. Ever thought of taking your whimsical talents and making a clock? It would be something to behold. :thumbsup:
