I'm so impressed that you noticed that Rhonda! The two different size stripes to give a sense of movement was intended to feel like the flow of the Mississippi but I can see now it that they serve a duel purpose. I appreciate your pointing that out and stopping in. The fates put me in this town and for the most part she has been good to me. I lived here all my life except for a 6 month attempt to live in Houston. I fell in love with Houston's art scene in the mid 90's when participating in their famous Spring festival Art Car Parade. I would encourage any artist who has never been to put it on their bucket list of things to do. Time magazine once listed it as one of the top ten parties in the world and I can see why. We do a pretty huge Mardi Gras here in the Lou. I have paraded my art car all around the country. She's gone now, but she carried me for 14 years and opened a lot of doors to me.

The background pattern creates an impression of musical rhythms ... very appropriate for this blue city-scape of St Louis!
Thanks for stopping by Su, It is showing up fine now. After I put it up for sale I realized I didn't have enough striped space between the two sides to allow for seems and reworked it. I wonder if you tried to view it while I was working on it. And I can't believe you have never heard of the Arch before. lol
The first thing I think of is St Louis blues... the sculpture was new to me. Great write up and design. Was not showing properly from your Shop 'new' page - maybe just needs to be re-saved or reloaded.
