Yes, I think a lot of voters will guess this is a sherpet style. I have decided to do what I do BEST, and this is it.....

I love these type of challenges, where one has an idea that suits the challenge. Collects all the materials one needs, and puts it all together in the design one can see in ones mind.

I hope you like it. It reminds me of our Australian Aborigional Art, with bright colors, symbols, and dot-like painting.

Enjoy.....

Thank you for your votes and comments. I believe this is proberly my best image technically, and also one that touches me in my heart the most......

I studied Aborigional art at college, and I really love the style of their art.
This is my tribute to them, my way, a sherpet style way.

THIS IS FANTASTIC. I HAD FORGOTTEN ABOUT THIS ONE. THE CURVED LINES, THE STARFISH, THE SHINY BLUE PEBBLES! CLASSIC SHERPET!

Yet again you have shown great ability to combine colours and shapes so beautifully Shez. This would look amazing on a restaurant wall or something like that - or on mine, for that matter!

Again one of my fav photos..
An idea: If you glue all this on a canvas the way you took the photo I think you will make mega bucks..;-)
This goes for all the others in its range as well
I would be one of your first customers...
YOur friend always

Love the bold hues of the oranges and blues in this composition. Very eye catching and the arrangement of elements is also pleasing to the eye. A ripple of orange splashes upon the deep blue 'ocean' surface. Orange and pale blue seastars adorn this ocean inspired composition. Very lovely.
