shocking with color

Usually my work is photographed with in-direct light / ambient light. Somehow this painting came out too dull so I tried a little direct light. Perhaps now it's a little too saturated, a little too powerful, and yet it's partly the painting? I chose to put strong colors together to create a reaction to create something with power. The painting grabs your attention and hopefully keeps it! 

Of course, what's always lost in a photograph but seen when viewing the original are the details;  the smaller fluctuation in the paint and color, these are the things that pull you into the work and give it it's depth to prolong it's enjoyment.
