    Superb color and composition Cary…I enjoy your realism!!!

  • Thanks Bob…it is bloody hard to do! sometimes I think of just taking an easy road and just paint abstracts! heh heh…I have a few friends who paint abstracts….and they can get a bit too precious about people who can’t ‘get the picture’ with their abstracts! God Bless ‘em… I ’understand’…. I think….I have actually painted abstract works….and then end up painting over them with what you see here!
