Ciao cara Jane, che vedi tutto attraverso un velo d'acqua, quasi volessi dare leggerezza al peso della realtà... Un bellissimo rettangolo il tuo, da meditazione. Buona settimana. Luigi.

How effective this large white mount is around this colourful abstract! Gorgeous! :0)

This is a very nice study of complementary colors Jane. There's a lot of depth in the painting--and the foggy focus of it makes the viewer, curious as to what scene am I looking at? I like the mystery. I think it's so important to work with colors on your palette to learn what effects you can get from them.

Hello Jane:) Beautiful! On one hand it has something abstract and on the other I see evening sun and the see. Love it!

What a warmth. I know I'm supposed only to see the abstract, but I can't help seeing that woman with her arms folded in her lap. looking out at me.

It's as interesting as it is spectacular - especially in that wide mount
