    Congratulations Ellliott - great catch for the theme

    thank you thank you thank you!
this was a work in progress at a local 'art in the park' show. yes a much larger canvas than what is shown. i was just immediately drawn to the artist's 'pallet'. and out of direct sunlight gave perfect lighting i thought.

    Congratulations on 5th place. I ended up bumping this up and up until it was my number one. It really did speak to me.

    hahaha, it's Elliott. Well fancy that. Yes please email me for a catch up. Shame there's no chat room here:) Nice job El, I loved this the moment I saw it.

    I love the colours and the balance of your composition. I think it shows the joy and effort of creation.

    Really like the the colors here, and would love to see more of the painting. Unfortunately, I'm not sure the emotion that the scene has for you transfers that well to others.

    Very nicely taken!

    Very nice composition and colors. The use of different shades of blue convey your sadness. In my TT.

    I get the feeling you going for although I am not a painter... I think this is composed well and thoughtfully. Nice lighting. Well done.

    just a different emotion for us than one related to your mom. I like the balance and color in this shot.

    I love the colors and mood that this image evokes. I sense something unfinished. Very well done. High in my TT's.

    really happy this struck a chord with the four of you. and especially the fair lady of queensland who almost never gave me a comment. i really miss the conversations we had in the past about photography and life in general. will send email soon.

    My favourite. Love the colours and the way the artwork pops against the black background.

    Terrific composition; the black background really pops the painting and the tubes of colour. There is a sense of impatient creativity, that can't waste time on cleaning up when there is an idea to be developed. I really like Luis Luis's work.

    Being a lapsed painter myself, and having shared this interest with my own parents (passed on a decade ago) this image definitely evokes strong emotions in me.
Aesthetically it is a pleasing still life. The colours are beautiful and the composition strong. I like the diagonally opposed blocks of colour separated by the dramatically contrasting black negative space. Well done. High in my favourites.
