Correct. As this is a piece of art in itself rather than resource stock, any work produced I'd like to consider a collaboration.

Thank-you kindly, I'm glad you like it. Non-focal work is probably my signature aesthetic, if such a thing exists, so I appreciate it when it resonates with others. I wish you luck with your own experimentations!

Yes indeed; it's what I enjoy about abstractions. Each piece exists in a different aesthetic, depending on the observer.

Reminds me of a quote from paradise lost:
"Moping melancholy,
And moon-struck madness"-
[link], [link]

Also, because of it's calm, sweet, sad tone, with the slightest hint of burning love:
No grief so soft, no pain so sweet, as love's delicious melancholy.
- Frances Sargent Osgood

For me this "melancholic frenzy is a common experience, and I love the way this image captures one aspect of that, at least for me.
What it feels to see the whole world through a fog while the inside consists of a burning fire, anger, anxiety, restlessness, panic, igniting flames. Yet no one can see or help, to them, you're a dying candle, barely light through a dark fog. To you, you are trying to escape being burned! In panic, you try, but you cannot make sense of the fog world around you, and others just seem to fan the flames.
Soft, smokey fog becomes an invisible prison of isolation, full of sadness and despair increasing by day with no release. No sooner hitting rock bottom, despair turns to madness, restlessness, insanity.
This image Is a perfect view from the outside. From here, a quiet candle light, but inside, no way to know.

This reminds me of what babies might see looking out through the womb into the world, the subtlety and comfort of blood and light.
