Love the warm/hot colors, that yellow streak does it for me. Feels like something intense is going on, but not sure exactly what. Good one.:thumbsup:

Very nice. As Trier said, intense.

the passion of the crowd was just a blur
his eyes were on the action below
her head swung from one spot to the other
things happened so fast she tried to follow

Go! she screamed
Stay! he yelled
Run! she countered
Slide! he bellowed
their voices intertwined in raw passion

In the glow of the closing fireworks
all seemed red and orange
and yellow
a fine night
a fine night indeed

Well, not understanding the title is not going to keep me from enjoying this one. Some mystery for sure but I really like the colors and the motion. :thumbsup:

Birdhs, if you ever stop writing I think I might have to give up painting altogether. Thank you.

Dave, thanks. You have to look extremely hard but the bear's arms are wrapped around her neck.

Hey...no pressure there.

funny how I always want to write about what I see,
but instrumental music gives me no desire to create lyrics

Love the depth you have obtained here, and the intensity of that red. Agree with Dave, there is something going on here but I'm not sure what. Which is just fine! Reminds me a bit of Hairy Wolf's paintings, and I'm sure you agree that's a compliment!
