    This painting was the result of a burst of inspiration that was so strong I had to leave work early and follow it.  So I did, and without any true idea of what was going to appear on the canvas, I surrendered to what was trying to speak through me.  Hours later, I ended up with this final image.  Calm blues and yellows blending and moving together that help transfigure the ethereal bond between the two lovers.  This piece is a reflection of that ideal, divine love that we are all capable, and ultimately strive to be.

    Well, one must read the description with this painting. The artist projects such an enthusiastic spirit and I am immediately caught up! This painting surely conveys the fantastical, a place inspired by dreams of other realms -- yet within this world, shrouded in the lore of history and days gone by.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    Very colorful meeting of shapes conveys a happy feeling. Looks like a gathering of boats -- as if they are all talking.

    I love this scene because I'm reminded of a wild beach I visited just like this. It is so beautifully designed and detailed that I am instantly transported. The strong composition draws me up and into the painting, to the water and horizon beyond. It is a wonderful experience.

    Beautifully painted, introspective and thoughtful portrait painted in warm colors of autumn, perhaps symbolizing the rich harvest of one's life experiences. The gaze is one of recalling memories gathering them all to a present moment in time.
