When I look at this, I find my eyes moving, darting around even as I keep them still. New images, shapes, and patterns pop up when you look at it. The colors that you use peacefully battle for your attention, however they also complement each other. As in the colors wouldn't have the same effect without the careful balance of each other. The piece also feels like the pure essence and spirit of creativity is alive here. It's always moving and alive. Something that I think the a truly great chef needs. I think the work will compliment and inspire the work that the chefs will do. I feel that this is truly a fine investment by your patron. Your expression here is simple yet powerful. It makes me wish I worked there.

I like it... If I had a house, I'd paint a lot of weird and abstract things on my walls like you did in the picture.
