    Beautiful. Love all the color. I have been shooting flowers lately. When I first got my camera I use to go to the flower garden all the time and then I found the wild horses. Anyway long story short, my wife wants new flower pictures for the house!

  • And whatever greets your fine eye is going to be beautiful. The lovely sensitivity you show with your wild horses will simply extend to more places. Good wife.
    Thanks for liking my painting, Gino.

  • How very kind, Carolyn, thank you. I wanted everything in there to be all the bits and pieces and dreams for my son’s growing up years that I couldn’t manage but wanted, the delights of a self-propelled Disneyland, and boundless joy. The couple who bought the original painting were struck by no presence of mechanical anything (except the aeroplane) and a child left to his own devices is endlessly curious and engaged. No internet, no cell phones, games, other-oriented pleasures. They plan to pass Trevor’s Treasure Island on to their grandchildren. I, knowing the couple, am sure it will sink in, to their offspring and generations beyond. I’ve had a number of sales of this painting on the ‘totes’ as well as prints, and it’s meant something to many, very gratifying. I thank you so much for liking it.
