Oh I like this very much! Purple and gold complimentaries, of course. Dancing together. The purple shooting upward toward the left and the gold shooting more gently up toward the right. And those wonderful textures. I can almost feel them. And the way you've bundled it all in that simple frame makes them all the more powerful.....the way that only something very small and very beautiful can be.
