  2. This makes a most interesting landscape....are they clouds or mountains? Sky or water? Hmmm...Love the contrasting colors and the ambiguity.

  8. This has such pretty colors! The crossed kites remind me of the novel. The Kite Runner and how the boys participated in competitions to see who could keep his kite flying the longest.

  17. For me, kites are freedom - and that's exactly, what this image shows - great colours too.

  18. The play of colours and forms in this work beautifully - excellent use of line and shape. I find the two yellow bumps flying the kites slightly disconcerting, but apart from that, a really visually pleasing piece!

  22. This is really nice. I like the sky and the way the mountains fade away. The curve of the kite string is perfect. This would make a great background on a computer.
