  2. WOW! I'd love to see this larger! What a fascinating composition. I was sure it was a photo and had read your description and open the image. Now of course I can see the painterliness but I want to see it bigger! Did this take a long time to paint? It's huge! And stunning!

  3. thanks robyn and jana. I must not have changed my email address on this blog and am just getting your comments.
    I tried to add this to the blog in a bigger format, but was unable to. I'll try again. I'll also try posting a detail. Thanks for the interest!
    Yes, It took a while to paint. I tend to do these type of paintings when I need to work on a meditative type painting- where I'm painting/adding layers without alot of decision making once the composition is established.
