I like this work! Nicely done! :)

I have viewed your gallery and read your write up. I can see and understand from your work where you are going. I also believe in mathematical design and composition to bring the viewer to the focal point of the artwork. These are all good tools to produce the work. One thing I cant find is the reason or message for producing the artwork in the first place. I start with the message to be conveyed to the viewer and then add the elements of composition and design to enhance the message I am sending. I hope this is a constructive comment and I wish you well in the future. I look forward to reading the message in your next artwork. James

I value your perspective, and agree with you in regards to the message of a piece. I recently composed a reference for myself comprised of Idioms, and a vast selection of nouns to be bridged together with a preposition. I found it astonishing, how many visual thoughts I was able to construct with this method. I just set up a Contest specifically around this, in hopes that I can reallign the focus of my art. As I will say, I do not commit to any single idea, and that keeps the flow of development moving.

Very effective use of light (and shadow) and nice composition - great atmosphere!
