Best to ya, Ernst

I like this but not as you might suspect. I love the image, the processing, etc. but mostly I'm fascinated how placing a box around the image reigns it in, but at the same time lets it breathe. It's interesting how the line tells my brain This Is The Frame but still finds it pleasing seeing it overflow. I'm sure I'm overthinking it. S-

There is a technique in oil painting where a wide border on the outside edge of the canvas is masked off during the painting. Once the painting is near completion the mask is removed and the border is broken in areas by extending the scene outward, giving the illusion that the painting is "splashing" out. These images remind me of that technique.

This is a different style from you and I really like these. Unconventionally beautiful.
