    Sublime. 

    Viera Szabo's "Game in Progress" and James Christiansen's "Abstract Chess" also wonderful.

    I am going to supress about 10 digital art paintings which are not very beautiful.

    If you see some improvements to the slideshow please tell me.

    Thanks for your interest but, must respectfully decline.  All I can offer is this Joyce Carol Oates quote:

    "Assuming that all art is metaphor, or metaphorical, what really is the motive for metaphor?  Is there a motive?  Or, in fact, metaphor?  Can one say anything finally, with unqualified confidence, about any work of art - why it strikes a profound, irresistible, and occasionally life-altering response in some individuals, yet means very little to others?  In this, the art of reading hardly differs from the art of writing, in that its most intense pleasures and pains must remain private, and cannot be communicated to others.  Our secret affinities remain secret even to ourselves....We fall in love with certain works of art, as we fall in love with certain individuals, for no very clear motive."

    Beyond this, would simply say its key to look to the work for inspiration not to people's interpretations of the work.  If what you are looking at doesn't inspire you look elsewhere, but keep looking.

    hi Splitleaf... thank you very much for the very good  Joyce Carol Oates quote.

    after reading it i removed my first impressions on the works of art.
