How neat the horizon line splitting the beautiful water from the sky. And in your native tradition of my very favorite painters for the last 350 years, say, you've got that horizon below the mid-point! That sky and its subtle reflection are worth at least two comments, ah, but we are allowed only one. So please accept all my admiration here. Now I want to hurry off to the autumn wagon scene that I see is beckoning to me from one of the two little boxes on my left! It looks so beautiful, and I've seen some of your autumn scenes before! They are probably as beautiful as this summer scene above and others, as well as ones set in winter and spring! Peace, etc., Bruce

Artist Reply: The painting was made for the Garden contest on Valentine's Day, another tradition we don't really celebrate over here. But I love the subjects like Halloween and Valentine for paintings, they are very inspiring! Thanks again for your wonderful words, my dear friend!

David Holcombe 13 Apr 2009

Seems like a great place for a romantic get-away. The horizon line bisects the drawing and gives a wonderful sense of distance.

very nice

Artist Reply: Many thanks, Eddy!

Bernhard Mueller 17 Mar 2009

Most excellent, very precise work. I love the details in your work, in this case the shades of the palm leaves on the backs of the pair sitting underneath.

Artist Reply: It was weird to paint dark stripes on people, but when finished it looked quite natural, I think I should paint more what I see in stead of what I think should be there. :) Thank you very much for visiting my gallery and the kind comment, Bernhard!
