I love this, Nikki, the ambiguity of it, the brushwork, the color choices and placement, the overall whimsical nature of it. Very nice piece.

As narrow as the connecting bridge may be, it will never break.

I think I did this as a kid
with acrylic house paint

and got a serious spanking

and washed off
with angry
mommy hands and Lava soap

in the middle of the yard
with a garden hose
and the neighbors laughing

and a towel
a rough cheap towel
not the house towels
but Dad's work towels

dry yourself off
better not be no paint on yoo
you get any paint on the carpet
you get beat again

after all those years
cain't 'member what the colors were
probly turquoise and black
Mom loved those colors on our house

great painting
odd memory
still get paint on me
still track it onto the carpets

Mom is long gone
but I still get yelled at
so little changes
so little changes

Very interesting, Nikki. Such unusual combination of colors, but it works well.

Great coloration. Somehow I pick up the feeling of the incipient combat of a chess position. :thumbsup:

Oh, my goodness, thank you one and all. You make me feel like I could be crossing a whimsical narrow bridge of strength, with a child's soul that will never grow up and a mere pawn in a ruthless game of chess............. It doesn't get much better than that. You bring laughter to my eyes. Thank you all so much for that.

I think this is so cute. The bottom colors look like they are reaching out to each other... it looks touching. They are far apart but they love each other and want to be close. That's what I see anyway... lol
