Oh Dave, it's BEAUTIFUL! I think that Forest Light is my new farbel favorite. The colors are luscious and earthy.
thank you :) it's a bit of a departure.
I can almost smell the forest!

Dave, this one is beautiful. I think it is one of my favorites you have done.
please don't taste the painting!
Um, I mean "I like it. Understated, captures the feel of the title in a way I didn't think farbels could."
these farbels have mysterious powers, they do! :)
I want this one soo badly if you sell it. I don't think I can afford it, but this is the first painting of yours that was my immediate reaction to.
it's for sale, but you'd be third in line :) i actually have two people already interested in it. that's never happened before. maybe i should pay attention?
Awesome; go you. I wonder if it's possible to do decent prints of these round ones. Somehow I don't think it'd be the same for this one, though.
i can do it, but because it is difficult to stretch a round canvas and nearly impossible to do so if it already has an image on it, i would have them made in a square format with a black (probably) border.
not something people often say about my paintings :)
well, thats just because they look at the little bits, rather than take in the whole. I find pattern and depth to be quite relaxing to contemplate.

the lightness of the edges and the darkness of the center suggests depth, the depth of a bowl, yet the stripes, being sooo parallel, suggest 2D flatness. that was my first immediate impression. then intimations of life; from the jungle colors to the vaguely biological feel of the design work, almost like vessals and/or bricks of DNA...
i like your work.
best of luck to you.

Re: nice piece
thank you! it's interesting, i didn't actually name the work until it had been around for a while. when the buyer expressed interest, i wanted a name. i had the same impressions as you, hence "forest light".
