  • Seems like these deal with the idea of the park. The top one reminds me of jumanji, which is a good thing. Also, for me, the small object in the foreground looks very real and challenges the reality of the rest of the painting. Beautiful!

  • Wow, I love the top piece! At first glance, I thought I was looking at a sculpture, then I realized it was a painting. It’s lovely! The colors and contrasting light and shadow and the amount of detail in the piece at the bottom is breath taking. Lovely work!

    Beauty in contemporary painting is hard to do.. these really pull you in to an isolated situation, a somewhat dreamy situation maybe
