    This painting is a portrait of a western hemlock. Its entangled boughs reach out and bow to the river below. The river separates the hemlock from our tree farm in western Washington.

    The river and forest conditions continually shape and reshape the riverbank. This hemlock, with its distinctive branches, always stands out, and when the evening light illuminates the boughs, it looks spectacular.

    The artist's description of this scene caused me to look further at the tiny details in the background. The dots of paint which loosely define the buildings are so thoughtful and intriguing. This is a fantastic work of art!

    Between Shadows and Light

    This is a vision I can look at for a very long time and keep finding new treasures in it. Very accomplished, beautiful composition, lines, color, depth. an original and genuine art done from the heart. outstanding.

    Beautiful use of color...

    Beautiful use of color and light. You can feel the peacefulness of the day - lovely.

    Beautiful Composition, Color and Light

    This painting stands out for it's carefully nuanced effects, excellent use of line (drawing), and values, and flowing, balanced composition. Upon first look, however, the technical reasons for this painting's success are far from my mind; I'm drawn into the story and imagine the plaintive vibrato of the widower's violin.

    Lovely work

    A beautifully sensitive portrait displaying excellence of craft. Well done!
