Re: Please please please comments and feedback sort !!!

Love your work. Especially your sketches. Originals have still got to be in the forefront of art. As I work totally in pen and pencil (not computers) I appreciate your talent and with a Scotsman background the clan/crest theme you specialize in was especially appreciated. Grandaddyearl

Re: Sailboat in the Sunset painting

Is it titled "boats in the sunset" in your portfolio? Looser than your normal. With sails being such a strong image what thinking went into the reflection of the white sails in the foreground water being dark? Interesting image that played with my mind somewhat. Your colors in all your wor...

Re: What is Art?
