    Beautiful work. The sapphire blue of the sky compliments the other elements so beautifully. Congrats on your home page feature today (Jan-19, 2013).

  • Thank you, Ms Moore! :-) It was a lovely surprise! :-) I love the way that complementary colours resonate with each other, and so often find myself exploring how subtle variations in tone change the feel of a piece…

    You used such vibrant colors. I love the haziness in some spots, and really love the sky.Just wonderFul!

  • Thank you, Lynnie! :-) I do appreciate your encouraging feedback. Most of these colours by themselves aren’t particularly striking – but I love how they resonate when they sit next to complementary hues. I like to create contrasts between sharp edges, textures and soft blended areas too.. Can’t beat oil paint for such extensive versatility in effect…
