    USS Chancellorsville in Heavy Seas is a scene that would be familiar to any sailor who sails the ocean in ships. There is a moment in a storm at sea where the clouds finally part and the sun shines onto the ocean, creating an inspiring moment where the sea is apparently two different colors. 

    The ships themselves look majestic and powerful in the pitching ocean, bobbing up and down like corks while plowing through waves. However, every sailor knows that no matter how powerful and majestic their ship may be, it's nothing compared to the Raging Main.

    Love this portrait of Robin Williams. It conveys the warmth and personality of this amazing guy so well.

    This artist sure had fun painting this scene of the Universe! Reading the story with the painting, you can see how the process of painting is such a joy, and the artist actually goes on this journey outside the every day world to travel among galaxies and stars. Isn't that the real point to painting?

    Although the title evokes something completely different for me, the colors, values, drawing and movement in this piece are wonderful!

    Wonderful Native Indian portrait, with an amazing sense of movement and spontaneity, yet beautifully executed with a perfect underlying drawing -- difficult to achieve proportional correctness with respect to the angle of view. Colors washes and accent lines add interest and the upward flow really does convey the feeling of pride and purpose.

    I love this night scene depicting Native Indians gliding in stealth across this slow moving waterway in their bark canoe. The angles of the bank and water reeds create a wonderful sense of depth. The composition is excellent, leading to a sense of a story by the placement of elements; the colors -- vibrate with interest from the range of deep blues to the red tinges of color on the canoe.
