I really like this work and also the way it,s done. You are a person that has a real furture in art. I hope the people around you are suportive of you.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

Don't know where the percussion instruments are.

Nice colours.


Do more with different colours.


And

You're wrong, Nigel. :) I love it too, very cool design, Abby. Your colors are interestingly peculiar to me, but they work together nicely.

Reminds me of 70's style pop art. Happy art is good art!
What I lack in talent I more than make up for with enthusiasm!

Thanks Krysta, I appreciate it greatly. I'll assume that the comment regarding fa
ic design is a compliment, although not what I intended at all. Thanks for saying I am talented.

Namaste,

Abby

it reminds me of the musical arrangement "Tempered Steel" by Charles Rochester Young; bold but nuanced:)

I'm curious if the copper shows up on the screen here or does it look differnt phsically. Very soft touch, I like it. Danny

Thank-you everyone.

Danny: the copper does show up differently in person... it is nearly impossible to capture the shine of the paint without compromising the overall lighting quality. The same goes for the mirror, although I do know a fabulous photographer from Buntrock Salie here in Iowa in a town called Storm Lake. He is an artist with the camera and was able to capture the gleam from the mirror in previous paintings I've done for a series of slides. I highly recommend him if you have mixed media to capture. The copper paint in this particular painting is a much darker shade in photograph than in person. Alas, I wish I were a photographer.

Bruce: Thanks, I appreciate it. Travel safely my fellow Iowan.

Loadstar: Love the name. Thank you so much for referencing such a beautiful musical piece to my painting. I am humbled.

Sorry I haven't been around lately everyone... I've been busy to the Nth degree. Going to see a gallery and museum tomorrow, and I hope to have some rave reviews on a new show there. I'll post the location and details when I get back.

Namaste,

Abby
