Re: Floating... C&C, I can take it...

Hi FD, as Ron said, this is a lovely gift! The direction of storkes behind the silhouettes pulls them together very well. My only crit is the colors, the orange / yellows are clashing a bit with your darks. See the moon and night thread, and these other images for some ideas on possible color refinements:

Thank you climber-man! I kind of knew the yellows/oranges were a bit clashy, and loud, I will refine them, I guess I was seeing if I could get away with it (expressionism) unless someone spoke up...

randalljazz, you are always too kind when you comment on my paintings! I did take away some of the yellows/oranges, not much though. It really looks better in person because the camera and computer make it look garish.
