Thank you, Maneesh

This one is also GOOD !!!

Boy do I feel and admire, appreciate, and value this one, Helene, among so many here! For me, if you are going to use "Near" in the title, then I want another one to show -- I hope you don't know first-head actually -- what "real" despair is. To me, the sort of rock -- I mean solid, natural boulders, make this painting giant in size, for me, though I suppose smaller stones could look the same, Their placement, back behind the two bright colors adds depth, I think, and really emphasize the black-hole cave, and their smooth texture and impenetrable mass are in perfect contrast to the jagged and long bright orange and blue making an excellent productive three-some (not a harmonious triad!). I think that the orange really makes it. I probably would have just used a bright red -- a thoughtless easy out cliche. Nice work, on the topic, and as a strong successful abstract -- even by any other name! Thank you. Peace, etc., Bruce
