    Description

    Seems to me I'm the only artist who speaks his mind. Well, I'm 61 years old and I can do that. I have been getting comments through my website and this is an acrylic painting and not a photograph (OKAY).  Please don't compare my work to an inferior photo. A photograph is a joke. This is some winter silver driftwood bones on a dormant, secluded beach near my hometown. I love the composition I created in this piece if nobody else can see it.....daahhh. This is my last time entering this competition since the judges are not noticing and capturing the subtle nuances. Realism is king.

    Feels like I'm there

    Love the orange which brings the viewer through the scene from back to front and around again. Sharp edges give it a photographic quality while chunky strokes in the water soften the scene and make it more human. Love this painting.

    Depth Perfection

    Masterful use of color temperature to create sense of depth, distance, and the fullness of the sky. Hate to give 4 stars for originality; doesn't need to be original to be amazing but it is a landscape.
