Wow, really different, but I like! Gonna be a good one-- I feel it :)

What do you have planned for the section I highlighted below-- x area? (I hope you don't mind, but thought it would be easier to show than explain). Seems to empty and needs something.... Maybe something dark or something to make a concrete focal point????....

I am uncertain, this is a WIP?

Okay. I see this as a piece as much about the negative space as anything. Would that be accurate in your opinion?

Yes

I was trying to simplify and keep colors muted.

Okay :) With that in mind I can say I like it and I think this would do well on a very large canvas to appreciate in full the concept of negative space you are creating in it.

Thanks Jon. It leaves a bit to be desired I think, but it does work well with he other 12X12 in the series. Agree larger would be interesting

First impression was like looking through my dad's microscope when was young. I would sit in his lab waiting for him to get off work and at times get to look at tiny things on slides and be fascinated by it all!

This is quite interesting and what responses you are getting! For a 12x12, for the right place placed just right in a rooms decor, why not!! :thumbsup:

I had a similar thought to Dave's. Looks like the view through a microscope. Very interesting work!
