I've been trying to get an image in this form for about a month … mostly without success … but I finally figured it out. It's cubic.

I'm happy with the results.

You are most welcome, Mac, and they are well deserved for such beautiful and unique artwork. 

I'm looking forward to seeing and enjoying the other two paintings. I truly enjoy your very interesting and magical expressions of your imagination that you put into your artwork of all kinds.

I remember golfing on mornings like that. 

Lost so many golf balls that way. You would think a solid white golf ball would stand out on dew covered grass. At least leave a trail in the morning dew to point the way. 

Almost looks like a person forlornly looking for their lost ball off the the far right in the picture; golf cart stationed strategically under a tree to the middle.

Morning...just wish to dedicate the photo of my favourite beach at dawn to Richard. Just found out he no longer walks this earth as life became all to much and he ended it Thursday...

This is the third person I have lost in three weeks I use to work with...two their own doing and one to a heart attack..

Glad we crossed paths guys on this road of life...

Jarrod, Richard and David...

Andriy Khlyvnyuk of the group Boombox was touring the US when the Russian invaded Ukraine. Andriy cut the tour short and returned to Ukraine and joined the Territorial Defense Force. A few days later he made a video of himself singing a famous Ukrainian song in the main square of Kyiv. Pink Floyd saw the video got in contact with Andriy and recorded their first song since 1994. Andriy is recovering from wounds in defense of his country and gave his blessing to the video. The proceeds of the song will go to Ukraine Relief.

Have you considered having the cubes fabricated as sculptural pieces?  Possibly in plexiglass or something similar with the images imprinted on them.

Maybe this helps:  How to Print on Plexiglass | eHow

I can image them as large pieces that sit on the floor, or smaller pieces that sit on a table.

I think it's totally appropriate for those pieces.

For me, the 3-D triangle would be a very interesting experiment. If it works well or not, there could be much to learn from such an experiment. You won't know if your don't try it.

However, given your excellent artistic ability, I have confidence that it would be a great success. I look forward to seeing the results if you take the venture. jrSmiley_79_smiley_image.gif

Those are very interesting unusual 'shrooms, Kavika. What is the name of that kind of 'shroom? I have not seen any like them before. Even though they are peeling, it adds an essence of uniqueness to them. They look sort of like a husband and wife standing side by side.  jrSmiley_18_smiley_image.gif

That is really amazing, Mac. It appears that they were created separately and then put together to form the beautiful abstract. The faint glow of colors around the artwork gives it look of radiance.

Simply awesome!
