    Balance Between Light and Dark

    This painting's composition achieves its balance by careful placement of light and dark areas, balancing these differently weighted areas in a visually pleasing design.

    I too feel bathed in gold

    Subtle, wide ranging values in a dominant palette of gold tones placed skillfully by their complements, and loose, lush brush strokes, capture this fleeting moment at dawn. I can believe I am right there, the warm breeze on my face.

    Awesome feeling of sunlight

    I find this painting to be so striking in both color and composition. The sense of golden sunlight just permeates my mind.

    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.
