Thanks for your comment and for stopping by. Yes, the geometric designs with bright colours against black are favourites of mine.

There is a very abstract geometric quality to the star – Da Vinci was ahead of his time.

Eric Edelman March 2, 2011, 10:11 pm

Thanks for your comment. Geometry as applied to art has interested me for a long time. I agree with you about Da Vinci: a man ahead of his time. He and his friend Fra Luca Pacioli were both interested in geometry, both for its own sake and for its applications to art.

Lots of symbols were woven into this star. I like the challenging picture. It looks like the answer to my digital painting Modesty of the Icicles – my digital comes as the reply – the bowing to Da Vinci Star

Eric Edelman March 8, 2011, 11:55 am

Thank you, Tomas. Going to check out Modesty of the Icicles right now.
