    Robin Hood's Bay, Yorkshire on the east coast of England. While visiting the location at low tide I was attracted to this scene (one of many). The water trapped by the outgoing tide resulted in ready-to-paint subjects. The design was purely natural with virtually no editing required.

    Summer Vacation

    This painting shows patience, mastery with medium and a beautiful way of looking at the world and extracting what touches us about it. so good.

    nice idea and great use of muted color. I like the fact that the mud or foreground sand & water have been made more important( via detail) than the buildings. Great painting !

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.

    Fun and very well done.

    Fantastic light!


    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.
