New Work

So this is the new fused piece that I have been looking at since October.
I've been tryi
ng to decide whether I love it or hate it. Included are my first attempts at bleach pen resist. The entire piece was an impromptu creation. So now looking at it, I wonder if there is just too much going on. No center, no purpose, all chaos. When I look at it again
, I see the giant four-square and think, no there is purpose and continuity. Any thoughts?
I'm having trouble with Blogger (grrr) and posting these photos, so this is another test.
