This one is for Ann (thorn), who recently inspired and encouraged me to dip my toesies into abstraction.

This started off as an inside view of an unfurling leaf of a Calathea lutea...a shot which I like in itself. That's V2, the straight from camera pic.
I then started playing...and ended up with V1.
View LARGE if you feel a need for more blood and veins.
