my work may NOT be used without my written permission.
I really like this piece, it's eloquent and subtle yet very strong and surreal. I only give it a lower impact rating because at first it only mildly caught my eye, but then the longer I looked at it the more interesting it became. The values are subtle and soft in transition and contrast. The piece has a lovely balance between the blues and greys as well as with the values. The brush work is intense, loose and fluid yet graceful in execution and transitions like a loose weaving that tightens, giving it movement and depth. There is a wonderful flow to the piece that becomes almost hypnotic and dream-like drawing the eye into it. It's like it's pulling back the veil to a story that it holds in it's depths. I see fish in water that's like a river of souls flowing and weaving into fur and feather while tentacles wade and fish for sustenance.
