Opinion Sought.

I'm thinking of submitting some images to an online gallery, and would like your opinion on what you would prefer to hang on your wall. I churn this stuff out for myself so I don't really have any perspective on merit, or lack thereof.
The CRM style above is nice but would you hang it on your wall as a 24 x 24 inch print?  Do you have any suggestions for improvement?
The bug above is more pop art. Could you live with this on your wall  along with the butterflies I have done previously?

I was surprised how 70's retro the above design and others I have made look. In my opinion, they are really just wall fodder and don't make any statement. Would you want to live with this type of graphic on your wall? I normally post this graphics stuff to BlueBeak so you are welcome to go browse a few other examples. 

I think maybe if I make a few changes, I could do something interesting. Please let me know if you think so too.

I like all of your work Sans, I think the piece you made for myself and family is very cool! Of the 3 you show, I would hang the bug, I like lots of color.

I like them all too but I'd hang #1 up and alternate it with #3.

I dunno. I had to pick out an outfit for an interview and all the materials for the bathroom remodels. I can't pick out anything else.

My rule of thumb is the feeling I'm trying to crate in the place I want to put the piece. Something I wouldn't like in one place is perfect for another. It is all a feeling thing. Therefore, without an overall vision, I am crippled.

I love them all..
... despite the fact that you've been, like, totally ignoring me for the past week.....
.. I mean, you don't comment, you don't email, you don't hold my hand in that way you did when we first met and our love was new....

... like the way you used to look at me during dinner over the candles and mouth the words "i love you" in that way that always drove me crazy...

ChrisSD, thank you. I'll do the bug in lots of color variations!

Dale, thank you. That gives me lots of ideas!

Bubbles, interview....?!
I understand. Choice is key.

Cheer; yes, the boring stuff is probably good for house staging etc. Sorry for the icky...

Joe, I'm so sorry I have been neglecting you. I have been up to my oxters in projects.
I'll make it up to you, dinner, the WindSurfing Club, Barbados, Tuesday. Bring your strap-on.

I know this is going to sound weird but for some reason I would love the one with the yellow background to be a bit smaller and done in a rectangle (not the shape but the frame around it) does that make sense? I don't know it's just something I felt.

I think I like #3 the best but I do like the play on "a fly on the wall", that could be a cool conversation piece...

i would like #1 fashioned in brass/sterling silver/copper.

one of my greatest losses of my life to this day thankfully was the rounded rectangular rectangular within a rectangle charles rennie mackintosh ring i left at the bathroom sink at the gym which was swiped immediately. your art nouveau stuff reminds me of it.
