Good grief Bill, that is a WONDERFUL painting...
You made it so much nicer than it really is and the painting just calls out to you.

Love the way you extracted the essence of the scene and enhanced it with your treatment. Accentuating colour that reads true is a real skill.

Thanks Marian! I've passed this spot for quite some time and finally decided to give it a shot.

Thank you Arti. And thanks for the birthday wish.

Hi Mick. I knew I was probably going change a lot when I decided on this. In fact I wiped my first sketch off and tried it again.
