What this looks like to me is a collection of mountains
with one mountain being the recipient of a hot and glorious light.
Hard to see in the photo but we have a smoldering red sky
punctuated with the overwhelming face a pink old man, looking away.
His face amazes with the extreme dark to pink palette. Shows an
interesting emotional perspective that maybe I alone see?
But it's hard to ignore the fire on one side and the strip of coolness to the left.
In my mind, it really does seem like the 'heat' and all of it's interesting imagery,
is overtaking the 'coolness' that displays in a smaller strip from top to bottom.
The sky action all but overwhelms the cooler 'attitude'.
Except for that face.
Admittedly, I'm partial to this type of work. I see the 'far-back'
view and the 'close-up'. Both have value. Loving the colors and
very involved scraffiti - all blend beautifully together.

Well Nigel, this is simply an incredible peace of work. I see four, five, no - six faces. I look again and loose those face and see three others having lost the first group. The lettering is sometimes letters, sometimes just interesting lines. Flip it counter clockwise 90 degrees and a see a path straight to hell. Turn it upside down and I see a forbidding mountain range in front of Mt. Doom. What power and passion is contained within this canvas. This abstract is timeless and beautiful. You have really created a masterpiece here my friend. It needs to be framed. Search around for a professional framer. I see it in a dark walnut or black frame. I am really impressed with this one.

Many thanks for your in-depth analysis. You should have no trouble writing 5,000 words E! I'm really pleased that you can 'see' things in this work. More than I can see and I painted it!!!
Really grateful to God that we are friends again.
God bless and chat soon.

Many thanks Carl for your very kind and uplifting words. Very kind of you and much appreciated. Yes your choice of frames would be ideal...maybe I'll get it framed. I'm running out of walls in my flat to hang my artworks on!!! LOL
God bless and thanks again.
