I need to look at this one a whole lot longer. It is quite intriguing.
Did you start with a grayish background?

Yes I did and then I followed that with colored inks.

I am really loving this one. It seems to have less black than your last few and the colors are.........happy and yet mellow. it gives it sort of a Timothy Leary vibe. Granted he isn't known for any art, but rather the idea of hearing colors and seeing music while under the influence :lol: Yes, he was on the odd side.

i'd gladly hang the second one on my wall as well, though unfinished. thinking of 60s 70s graphic stories, raw yet playful energy; inviting along.

Splendid! As usual, I'm finding I like your first posted image the best...maybe due to more contrast in values?

Milna , thank you kindly.

Kay, you always like the first post better...:lol:

interestingly, like, Kay, I find your first (and second) posted images the best.

03-26-2018, 11:30 AM
Jim, thanks for your honesty and I still see those first images as unfinished and I can't leave them there, but it's nice to see that if I could walk away that they would be accepted.:thumbsup:

This is my favourite of yours to date.

I'm going to agree with you in that the first and second don't seem quite finished, and so I am glad you pressed on and came to such a wonderful dynamic conclusion.

I just wanted to add though that I think the white is bordering on being a little overpowering. I wonder if you can see that. :)

Wow thanks Katie I appreciate that vote of confidence my friend.:wave:

Katie you are entitled to see it how you see it, so no hard feelings as you canít please everyone as an artist.:thumbsup:

The new owner is crazy about his new piece and that fact supports my statement that each piece is intended for one particular person and it's my duty to make sure they find each other. ;)

His quote "I really really like that one!!! does she have a home??? I got some empty walls in my house lol it's like a cartoon dreamscape I love it :heart: "
