Born of Water by Rykk Born of Water by Rykk
Ultrafractal 3.04, 5.02

Here's a variation of the one the guy picked to go along with / hang next to "Always and Forever". It's mostly a rework/tweak of an older design of mine with a background based on the one in AnF designed for continuity. Works out pretty good with thick gallery wrap stretchers because the backgrounds 'connect' when viewed from most any angle due to the way they continue as they wrap around the frames. Ah, the joy of fractals - so easy to add meaningful "bleed" to a piece simply by zooming out!

If anyone would like to see all of the things in this vibe that i made over the course of the "work" (yikes! - hate that word! lol). Here's a link to my website - that I'm STILL trying to complete/decide things on. -- [link] -- If you hover the little green buttons next to the 4 images on the page, samples from that gallery appear in the banner at the top. Some other neat tricks there, too. Anyhow, if you click the nav button on the left labelled, "Always", it will take you to a gallery I set up for the buyer to browse.

Thanks for stopping by, y'all!
Rick
