I like the texture. The image doesn't work for me in the corners, and it doesn't even really seem to work as an abstract with shading/tones/texture. The 'pin-up' is almost seen as an afterthought and a disctraction. The image is almost split in the middle, light on bottom, light on top - black to middle left -it just doesn't work for me. It's almost like you say, what's going on and then you notice the 'pin-up' and then I say to myself, so this is what the image is about? It's a picture of an old room with a pin up on the desk. The craft is outstanding and the tonal range is nice and am sure its even better in person. But to each his own!
