I love the brush strokes in this painting. I would never know that it was so small. Fabulous sense of light and atmosphere.

Thank you Linda,
I just caught up on your blog work, and I'm one jealous artist!! Have fun in Italy. Are you a true Italian or did you marry into them. They are the first and the last when it comes to artists.

These mountains are magnificent, they dwarf everything at their base. I like the contrast of their cold blue and of the warm valley.

Elijah,
Nice to hear from you again. I clicked to your blog of art critic, and was amazed again at what you wrote last year about some of my work.
An artist may visually put together a composition for alot of reasons, mabe to just record the scene, but without knowing it, they are also constructing an emaotional response tool for other to react. Thanks for the insight.

you capture lovely light, Mick...and was somewhat surprised to read about your panel preparation, but it explains I suppose the ability to paint as you do on smaller sizes.

A good eye and feel for nature's mood!

must be about the same age too, both painting for about 30 years. Good to see someone so hard at it!
peace
