Wow! The moment I read your words, I could see the interior space - you brought it out of the colours and lines.

Brian Miller said...

the trespass of the mass...is a rather frightening thought...the quick lines def add to the intensity of it...

Margaret said...

Yes. This is intensely painted and your words portray that... it's a piece that moves your eyes around and around... as do your words...

Cells swarming is a cause for alarm ~

Good work here LM ~

Enough to make our insides quiver... ;)

Helen said...

Enjoyed this medical journey you took us on ... the art does resemble something a pathologist would see under a microscope. Frightening too.

Deep breaths, now...............!

Well crafted the inner workings of a heart.

Alarm is a good description of the feeling I get from this painting! Well done.

The sound of this (in my head) is amazing. To me it builds and quickens, then suddens to a halt. I love the short lines. You should try audio sometimes. I would love to actually hear this.

The urgency of danger from within, the terrifying image of something in our bodies out of control--very well captured, LM.

Wow, Ms Mouse. You had me trying to imagine my blood and my organs, and the idea was terrifying, but I'm sure I needed it.
Thank you!
