Re: gift basket

This is masterful. Those dark fissures really add a new dimension. Love the warm tones and abstract shapes. You hit the bullseye.

Re: gift basket

It is a winner, La! I love the overlapping shapes and the distortion, all with a few recognizable ones. Genius!

Re: gift basket

This feels just right-
color, shapes, composition.

I immediately loved this.

Re: gift basket

Very pleasing. I just love it. The colors, great use of definitive black, a slightly cubist flare. Delicious!

Re: gift basket

thanks guys, you're very sweet <3

it showed at an art market today, but everyone seemed more smitten with a couple soft/cloudy/blues pieces and made no wow's over this one.

i still like it tho and i'm thrilled you do too
