This one feels like flowing water and root tendrils and gritty soil and oxides and lichen and glinting light and dancing.

MB, thanks for SEEING all those wonderful things you listed, that I tried to hint at!

This is such a fascinating series.

Marja-Leena - you constantly amaze me by putting so many visions in this artwork! Each time I look at this, I see something new. It stimulates my imagination & the shapes plus colours tell a story about life - reality in motion and a captivating menu of tranquility. I really love this series you are creating!!!

Olga and Roger, thank you. You are both so very supportive of my efforts. I don't know about other artists, but sometimes it's hard to put one's work "out there" for all the world to see.

It's almost an optical illusion on the screen, the perception of depth you've created here.

Hi Dave, you came in as I was replying to the others! Thanks for the very interesting observation.

I see horses I don't know why, horses in motion...

So much implied - almost ghostly. I really like the flow of this one.

Tall Girl - horses, really? Interesting. I keep saying that it fascinates me to hear about the variety of images that poeple see in an art work.

Anna, thanks!

Shamanic, and a glorious blue!

Lucy - "shamanic" - I like that, thank you!


Bill - thanks, as always...
