    Lovely piece which feels more moutainous to me. Perhaps it’s the blue and violet areas above the siennas and reds that causes me to react this way? The movement does imply water.

      Mountains and water mountains and mountains of water all flowing–earth mountains flow too. Energy is always flowing. You’ve been to the river enough to catch the flow, Al. I wonder what Minnie would think? Hmm.

    Beautiful. Fits the title. Love the swells which I associate with waves and wings. Your inclusion of strong reds cause me to think of the primal force of nature and everythings energy to survive. I like this.
