Lascaux Ladder

Just in case you think I have been playing "all domestic diva all the time", here is a picture of the piece I just finished for the "Straight and Narrow Part 2" challenge. It is just 5" x 25", but will be a springboard for something larger, or maybe a series. My artist's statement is admittedly a little half baked, seeing as how I came up with it at about 4:30am when I was trying to get pictures sent off before leaving for work.
Here goes:
Artist's statement: I began this piece while thinking about the human urge to create art, as evidenced by drawings and paintings all the way back to the caves of Lascaux. I wanted to create a sense of the natural world and the artisit's exploration of it.

That last part is not stunning in it's originality, but I WAS thinking all around this caves of Lacaux thing and artmaking as an intrinsic part of who we are etc. while working on this. I love the earthy feeling and "cave wall ancient" looking colors juxtaposed with brighter shapes, so I will be doing more of this.

Well I can see where you are coming from and I like the long and narrowness of the piece. Some lovely colours too. But I don't know if it says that to me. Yet!

I love this - especially that colour combination.

I want to see this larger! I'm sick in bed with my laptop. Looks great even on my tiny screen.

This is lovely and I do see the Lascaux colors and scratchings on cave walls. Gerri is right, it would be powerful if re-made large.
