    Description

    Gooseberry Falls on the North Shore of Lake Superior is a sight to behold, particularly after heavy rains. One cannot witness a morning like this...fog lifting into the breaking sun... without wondering who else stood in awe on these very rocks. At different times, the Cree, the Dakota, and the Ojibwe lived here. As early as 1670, the Gooseberry River appeared on explorer maps. Shared human experiences have a way of transcending time.

    I like how you showed an emotion with abstract shapes. You definitely get the point across without words.

    Subtle and beautiful

    The subtle transitions of color are really well executed.

    Dynamic

    Fleeting kiss or Salsa Dancing? There's a dynamism and enough of a hint of figures to suggest different things to each viewer. I see Salsa dancers with others swirling around them.

    pure anguish

    Highly skilled artist. Everything reinforces the anguish emanating from the child; light up high, ominous dark below, cool tones of hair, wintery coolness of background, selective warm tones of face, centered composition.
