These are some very good red tones for this contest and the dark shades of blue compliment them nicely. All the colors are vibrant and the design with the curves is attractive.

Comment from Dan Hancock


I get the patriotic reference, and the use of the red, white and blue. I may just be me , but the brown color just seems to take something from the image. I may have opted to work with just the three colors rather than the fourth that you added. I like the "flow" of the image, add overall I think this is a unique abstract.

These colours always work perfectly together. The bronze, alias light brown gives the perfect foil for the strong basics of red and blue. The white fringing is a stroke of luck or genius.

The colors really fit your title. The work has a very contemporary feel. I like the subtle use of umber which I feel breaks up the strength of your color palette. Great work and I wish you all the best in your contest entry.

Comment from Artistic Chick


I like this. I love the red, white and blue that swirl together, then start again...in other words, from top to bottom it appears a sea of blue separating 2 flowing "continents" of color. Cool idea.

Great piece of art and very patriotic! I like the different contrast and the way the colors are layered. Where the blue touches the red it gives the illusion of shadow which adds to the painting. Good luck in the contest!

Comment from Patti C


Yes, it's great red, white, and blue separation with clear borders--no muddy colors. I also like the flecks of other colors such as the red on the blue and tan. Very nicely done.

Wow, that red is such a deep tone and it really stands out in a big way! I like this combination of colors , this has a patriotic look with the red white and deep blue, with a bit of the brown, I also see glitter! That gives this the look of a celebration! This is well created and fun to view! Best wishes to you in this contest!

This is an interesting abstract artwork! The flow of the paint very carefully controlled makes it an interesting viewing. Fine composition, vivid colours and very good light makes this first rate.Good luck!
