Wistful purple drifts in a cloudy sky in an evocative abstract by Javanese artist Sutianto. His cool color scheme brings a feeling of nostalgia to the painting. "This is meant to represent the coldest night," he confides. "I will light up your life until I brighten your dreams like the stars that illuminate the night." He signs it "Tanto."

"second piece by this artist"

The first piece is quite similar -- I view them as sister pieces, but they are signed 5 years apart. They use the same color palette. I appreciate these pieces differently from different distances. I quite enjoy that the impression they give is different from across the room, at 4-5 feet and up close. From a distance it is the large blocks of color and overall movement. From mid-distance it is the subtle variations in color and layering. Up close it is the great texture of the layers.

"Everyone loves it!"

I would like to thank Novica for making this work available to the orld. Longing Souls had been haunting me from the first time I saw it. It speaks to me. I finally bought it. It was delivered to me in Canada from where I transported it to The Cayman Islands where it now soothingly graces the wall of our living room. I love that it is large (40 X 60), that it is abstract and that I was able to purchase it easily. Novica makes all that possible. To the artist, I wish I had the means to send you a photo of your painting in the context in which it sits today. It fits so well and gives me much joy.
