    Description

    I painted this in Richmond, VA. It was a captivating scene, of a forgotten concrete stairs, being reclaimed by the elements. The top was a nicer part of town while at the bottom was a rougher part of the city. I thought it was such a mezmerizing visual story.

    dreamy

    The solidity of the wall and walkway against the dreamy quality of the light and the building behind work great against each other. The warm tones of the foreground and the cool background are perfect.

    I like how you showed an emotion with abstract shapes. You definitely get the point across without words.

    Subtle and beautiful

    The subtle transitions of color are really well executed.

    Dynamic

    Fleeting kiss or Salsa Dancing? There's a dynamism and enough of a hint of figures to suggest different things to each viewer. I see Salsa dancers with others swirling around them.

    pure anguish

    Highly skilled artist. Everything reinforces the anguish emanating from the child; light up high, ominous dark below, cool tones of hair, wintery coolness of background, selective warm tones of face, centered composition.
