Love the abstract nature of this. Those vibrant blues really stand out against the white.

Not entirely sure about the 2-sided blue border. May be better all the way around? Not sure.....it may grow on me!

Definitely worth a click!

Cheers,
Steve

Love the idea, the colours and the composition but I have to agree with Steve, the border is a bit iffy.

Very abstract, Suzi! Shame we don't see more of the bottle, though. The colours look great!

Wow thanks everyone! I thought I'd go ever so minimalist for a change.

Thanks for the feedback on the two borders - I had half thought of ending the vertical just where it meets the bottle but then thought that would make it look unbalanced. But I'll try taking it all the way round and post it as a mod later. Just wanted to experiment with white space 8-]

Glad you like it 8-]

I like the part border, just adds that something to hold the shape. Interesting idea to explore.

Hi Suzi, wow, missed this one, haven't logged on for a while. I've always loved your use of space and this is no exception, i'm a love of blue bottles myself (Ty Nant Welsh water bottles especially ;0) ) would look stunning huge on a gallery wall somewhere. Hope this finds you well and happy.
