LOL! Sneaky saving the best for last like that and putting them in a separate post!
Really like the movement, energy and colors in the 5th and 6th ones.
The others, if youre interested in MHO, do not the same compositional interest and the balance is not as enticing. Though they do certainly have merit and are enjoyable non-the-less.
Looks like you usually post in the Figure Forum however its great to see your works here in the Ab/Cont. Forum. :D I look forward to more of your work.

oh Joe, I've thought of your work often. Like microscopic slices of fervent secret worlds

back to taunt with symbols and grins :D

Do you dream these symbols?

and of course, I really like these. I can't add more than my previous blathering about it except to say good to see your work

Nice work! Agree with MountainSong on the 5th and 6th ones. Outstanding.
Hokusai, huh? I think he'd approve. :wave:

great work, Joe Rucker.

It's all there.......composition, values, linear elements, rhythm, etc.

I think the minimal-ish two color (dark red on cream) are particularly sophisticated.

Good to see you back, Joe. Great color melds & drippings, especially the blue on that last one; it's like a universe of star unfolding.
