This ones for you Linda.
I remember 2yrs ago when I first found out about XenoDream. I was already a hard-core UF user and was reluctant to purchase XD because I didn't think I really had the time to learn a new fractal program. Then... I found Linda McCarthy(fractalinda)'s personal art galleries on the web ** http://lotustrading.com/ ** After browsing through her XenoDream galleries, I picked my jaw up off the desk and purchased XD. Been a XD-adict ever since :)
Thanx Linda, for all the inspiration. You really put a spark in me. :)

You know, Linda was a prime reason I entered the XD world myself. You've done an excellent tribute here! The POV is splendid, and you do "that touch of color" so very well. Love the different chain shapes, and the great pipes!

You're right, XD can generate some wonderful 3d graphics, and in the hands of an accomplished artist it can astound. This is such an example.

What a sweet gesture and a lovely tribute. Thank you very much, Joseph! You learned so quickly and surpassed my efforts in XD early on. Now I'm "gobsmacked" by everything you do..in XD & UF. I love this image. A wonderful complex combo of shapes and texture, and the minimal color fits so well.

Excellent image, Joe. A great tribute to a very deserving artist. Linda is one of my inspirations, too.

Wonderful complexity of beautifully resolved forms and detail; the flow of forms and symmetry lend it a vibrant dimensionality and bring the delicious intricacy into harmony. Excellent work and a super tribute to a fabulous artist. VOTE
