Oh yeah! :thumbsup:
This is very cool.
I'd have an itch for some black/dark charcoal to the right of center
at the bottom, but I've ruined a many by scratching an itch, so
never mind.
Ps: Much to love on your site. The Poison Render for example.

Welcome to the Abstract Forum! always good to see new talent.

Active mark-making
colors work well together,
gives the mind and the eye a lot to enjoy as they wander aboot
full canvas, not an artist that likes open spaces

intersting
berry intersting indeed

Welcome! This is looking good. I love the pink-yellow-blue thing you have going on on the right, and maybe that's a person? Nice work.

i dig art history. shovels full everyday. there is a lot of paint splattered around and no one is gonna look at it. this piece is the opposite. it brings me back to art history. this piece would have been ground breaking and momentous in 1944. it may have lost some "edge" but its still first rate. paintings like this keep painters painting and trying to outpaint the painter who painted this. well done! it really is a remarkable picture. it is a interesting visual riddle which i want to contemplate but never fully solve. i see several influences interwoven to create a distinct visual voice. given the size,medium, and quality of work i would suppose you have been gathering experience for sometime. its a work that showcases the effort involved in making an abstract painting. the range of your colors and marks is very sharp. please post more so we can copy.
