Life Lines
Perfectly captioned, the artist's chosen title, Life Lines, truly describes this image. The strong earth tones were the first things to capture my attention. Then, once in the composition, the distinct patterns, vigorously flowing lines and deep shadows added their considerable charm. The artist has used light to reveal beauty. There is so much to discover here. This image could be a nature study; It could be an abstract. There is motion and depth in this image. Sharply delineated, yet mysterious. I want to get my hands in there and play with the leaves. The interpretations are endless. Is that a lizard's tail, or perhaps the back of a dragon sharply slinking its way down the frame? Is this an alien road map, or an ancient puzzle? When an image captures the imagination, as this one does, it seems to create strong emotions; then to me, it becomes art. I'd find an undecorated but heavy golden frame and put this image on my wall, any time.

I love the way the vaines show up white in this photo. It's makes a beautiful abstract piece of art. One of my favs. 10
