The unfinished border around is intentional and was done to create a glob of 'asbtract' mix of colors. Pls. feel free to tear it apart !!!cheers !!

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Is it possible to fuse a highly detailed rendering and still look abstract without being contrived and over worked?

Very intersting. There's much going on, and I'm straining to pick some of it out. Detail photos please.
Very nice work, the combination of abstract and photo elements works. Would be a great illustation on a books jacket cover.

It is really beautiful. Realistic and dreamy at the same time. I love every small details in it. Congratulations!
It looks like a fine watercolour painting.

This is a strong composition and I see nothing to tear apart (as you say). I love this type of work. Well done.

This is a "can of worm" type question. Abstract art (defined in mirriams) is little or no attempt at pictorial representation or narrative content. Your style is more reminiscent of surrealism...in which case it truly is impossible to overwork.

I think this is an incredible work of art, edging on genius!

How many faces are in there? I think I'm seeing at least 3, but hard for me to tell from small image.
