Green


8x8 inch mixed media "stealth"
A green bug-chandy. Guess it came from a dream I had, something about an insect who posed as a chandelier to attract its prey. Whatever it was, I had to make this piece this morning. Who knows what Illustration Friday will bring out in others? Go find out!

This is gorgeous! I really love the shape and colors. It's a wonderful piece. Could translate into "3D" as a wall or window hanging.

I see that you've labeled this "silliness," but I see it as whimsical, lyrical and delightful. I love the shapes of the chandelier arms and the delicate candles and crystals. The background color is so fresh and wonderflly textured along the edges. I like!

I love the colors and the dripping crystal-like forms. What an interesting dream.

I love the new banner ... and you've inspired me to try using maps in some "for fun and play" art.

What a wonderful image. I really am drawn to it. Maybe it's because I really like chandeliers. The funny this is that it looks like an actual chandelier that was hanging up in the Diesel store... and then oddly enough appeared again in the Anthropologie store.

I like this! I just bought a copy of "Juxtapose" and was blown away by photographs of chandeliers with arms that look like octopus legs, starfish, etc. Cool stuff!

I just decided to do a little Googling and found he has a myspace page... Enjoy, or not, I think it's cool stuff.

Your colour palette is dreamy. I enjoyed reading about the source of your inspiration as well.... I ...trust it ended well?

I like that- giant bug that hides as a chandelier! Brilliant!
