  1. Did this collage just bitch-slap me?

  2. Hm. I can't figure out if that's a compliment or the opposite of a compliment. I'm gunna take it as the former.

  3. yes Carla, I can see that, and yet the word "apparition" also comes to mind, perhaps because it is not an all-over field. There is stuff in it, things. I mean it leans towards alloverness, but holds back, and yet that holding back is nothing but assertive.

  4. It's the "treat, then challenge" delivery of the group. Many of these offer instant delight (and more, as one lingers over them). Then you throw in one like this, which dispenses with ooos and aaahs, and is rather confrontational about what it is.

    Definately a compliment.

  6. or a hallucination- something about the way the black ish outlines waver and dance.
