I should add, that I painted some on this one with black as I saw shapes which reminded me of people. I tried not to make it too literal, but just to give the impressions. Thank you for your comment!

HI, Gary, No, I never use actual photos in my work. The shiny texture was taken originally from a photo of an abalone shell which I enhanced digitally and then made a digital painting from the result, doing a lot more to it and manipulating the colour like something fluid on the digital canvas as well as painting with it. That piece is called Magic Fountains, and is also here in FAA. From there, I started using sections of that, enlarging them, re-colouring, and cutting and pasting, stretching, etc. like patchwork which I blended together at the edges. This resulted in this and the similar piece, Blue Feather Reflections. More than two years later, I'm still using texture from that small patch of the original open source photo of the abalone shell. It's been handed down if you like and has many grandchildren and great grandchildren among my digital paintings. I have several more that will be coming in the future using this 'material' as the basis.

Excellent work of art. I like the color blocks and the vague figures. Was this based upon an actual photograph or entirely created by you? V&F

Thanks so much, Barbara! I really like how that one turned out, too.

Thank you, Gun!

Wonderful abstract, great colors and I like the yellow and blue colors together. Your title fits very well! FV

Thank you so much for the feature and your kind comments, Jumper!

Your view of it is fascinating, Mario. I never thought of it that way, but now I can see that there, also. The beauty of abstracts is enhanced by all the possibilities for each person to see something different. Thank you for your kind comments.

Original abstract. What I see is a yellow cathedral, it's red door inviting the pedestrian to look inside.

Thank you very much, Iris and Anne, for your comments!

very nice Mathilde..Great use of color and composition!

This is wonderful.... I love it....

Thanks, Heather!

I love the translucence of this one and how you remained true to abstract form. I love the flow of the golden shapes.

Excellent dark abstract & use of space!
