    Description

    This is the interior of a carriage house owned by some friends in Richmond Virginia. It is an incredibly warm and welcoming place. I loved the way both warm and cool light sources spilled across this room. This place has such a feeling of home, and I really wanted to capture that.

    An Incredibly Welcoming Table

    The warm glow depicted in this otherwise ordinary interior space is masterfully executed. Great use of triadic color harmony, and clearly directed light and shadow make this painting work so well. I just love this painting!

    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.
