Amazing, what a creative "jag" you are on! I really enjoy visiting your blog, it is always an inspiration.

Thank you, Chris! This is what I hoped would happen; I've been pushing myself to paint bigger and not fuss so much. I think I'm trusting myself/the art vision a lot more. Thanks for commenting; I felt like maybe this one was a bit of a breakthrough.

Great design and composition. I'll be the size makes a powerful impression. I wish I could see it for real!

Hi Leslie - the Ponte Vecchio in Florence is one of the oldest bridges in the world (14th century I think). It is lined with little goldsmiths shops from end to end. Although it looks nothing like it, for some reason, your painting puts me in mind of it. A modern Ponte Vecchio! Good on you Leslie for pushing yourself and taking risks which that always entails. I think these new pieces are powerful and individual.

You've been possessed by Edward Hopper and Piet Mondrian, and they decided to show us all a truly contemporary piece. ;-)

Seriously, Leslie, this is astonishing.

Thank you, Elizabeth, and thanks for stopping by my blog! ;- )
This one is definitely better in person. You are right, this one is more exciting in person and the size is something that just doesn't convey in a jpeg. I'm so pleased with the way it turned out, and this kind of feedback is really gratifying.

Hi Sheila,
I'm so glad the "risk taking" is conveying in the paintings. I'm trying to be bold and trust myself more. Thanks for your comments!

W.K., I hope you have some idea of how much I admire your artwork. Talk about taking risks! I am thrilled to get this kind of feedback from you. Thanks!
