Dear Sasha, a very beautiful and very difficult work.
My first impression was of delight.....'yes how right! Seize the light and enjoy the moment for its beauty!'
.......but then as always you offer so much more. There is an eye and it appears to be spinning around like a distorted frenetic windmill....it is mesmerising .....but the spider has the control and just waits.....
.....and there is so much more I could explore.....but instead I'll just say a simple thank you for sharing your vision.  The depths of symbolism delight.

Thank you for the link ......a lovely story indeed.
The Aboriginal people here in Australia also have 'Dreaming' accounts that teach about the creation of the land and the origins of flora and fauna.

Dear Julie,
 I love your percepcion. As always you gave some exceptional observations.  I was partially  inspired by old Cherokee story "Grandmother Spider Brings the Sun". www.youtube.com/watch?v=ok_b46…

Wow! Oh my goodness!  This is fantastic.  The colours and the level of detail are just....perfect and so stunning!  Amazing job :nod:
The way that the colors go together and contrast really go together. Not only that but the colors seem to be almost translucent, allowing light to go both ways and making the light really go well with the other side of the web. Good Job. 9.5/10 in my book!
