Probably not one of the most original works I have done, but I was so fixated on the cluster of basic geometric forms I started with, I could not let go of this (I came back to it several times over several years).

Very nice.  I love the different tones of the blue abstracts.

I like this! It looks digital. Makes me think of technology.

It is partially digital.  I went through a long phase where I created geometric primitives using software, then post-processed along with textures and paint layers done analog.  It's a time intensive process, but the results can be fun and unexpectedly rewarding.

I think it's a good thing to sometimes step back and allow yourself to appreciate the basic elements of art. Sometimes working on a composition of cubes is just what the doctor ordered. I find beauty in a handful of cubes.

Great work. I think the background is too desaturated and/or too empty, though. For this reason, I think this piece lacks the intensity and complexity of many of your other works. The foreground and the background don't seem to work well together colouristically, whereas it is the interesting interplay of colour that usually attracts me so much to your work.

Also, the composition seems a little awkward. I think the top and bottom should have been cropped more, or not at all. Also, that area of empty space on the right doesn't seem to add anything. I think that it too should have either been considerably extended or eradicated altogether.

Still, those are fairly minor criticisms, and overall, it's a very good piece.

this is really different from your usual work... i really love it though. the colors are extremely bold and against the tanish background... they really pop... this is a really nice piece visually. nice work.
