thank you so much! i was thinking of a comet, but i alreay (a long time ago, tho it is in my gallery, did an oil painting of a comet) and i started thinking about it and i thought--fireworks! and that it looked very much like it was moving fast sooo..hence the title. i'm really glad to know i achieved the look of movement. i spent a really long time putting layers and layers and layers of color on, as i'm sure you already know, i've found that doing that with acrylics gives them a lot of depth, whereas with oil it gets muddy looking.
