This surrenders well to very different interpretations, it seems. An excellent quality of any art piece in my view. My first one was of a person neck from behind.

(I regret not voting this challenge)

Wow, t, this looks like something that pointy could have done. Fabulous blurstract and mesh of colors. Larger than life ambiguity. Think it'll be flying up to 8th place soon. p.s. I thought for sure it was a pheasant immolation on your living room carpet.

I am aghast at my misquote! I'm almost sure that had I said it aloud I would have caught it. I really only know Dylan because a friend used often to quote him. But you did not have to. I did intentionally change the latter part of the quote, adding the gerund to describe the recorded action of my subject.

So pleased you like it. Next time, you know, a 10 would be fine.

I gave you a 9, you got 9th... I wonder, should I try giving you a 1 next time and nail you the blue? Or will you gently remind me that correlation is not causation, Bear, and 9's will be fine thank you?

BTW, since I am an editor, let me point out in passing that Dylan Thomas said "Do not go gentle into that good night. Old age should burn and rave at close of day. Rage, rage against the dying of the light." I can't remember the punctuation offhand but those are the first three lines of one of the better villanelles written in modern times :-)

Totally absorbing- looks like a wild still life with birds, and more
