    This is Clovelly, a wonderful village in North Devon. I loved the view down over the harbour and the 'S' curve made by the small boats attracted me to make this painting.

    Design always triumphant in the contest for capturing the eye. The balance and flow of the subject matter flows along in this powerful piece. The artist was also careful to minimize some elements which could have destroyed the work; light, drawing and other traits also impress.

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.

    This painting just draws the viewer in. Really like the reflections in the puddles and the depth of field.
