Birthday Jubilation

Since I couldn't figure out how to express jubilation as part of my current obsession with Cityscapes, I went for an abstract treatment of celebratory colour and shape. For those of you clever enough to find a candle flaming away in there, yes, I did celebrate a Big Birthday this summer. There may even be the requisite number of "candles" scattered about.

  3. Love the colours - not only does it celebrate jubilation but vibrancy as well - it sings out 'Happy Birthday', and may you have many, many more.
