River

My latest, oil on board 18"x24". Based on a previous painting, this one has much a stronger drawing(I only realized right now as I look back at the post). I like the nontraditional composition, slightly graphic. It sits against the wall in my studio for a month or two now and I still like it, whenever I don't hate it after a couple of hours that is a good thing. My wife still has issues with it and I plan on some light changes but it's basically there.

It looks great. The flesh tones you chose stand out really well against the swamp background. Brilliant anyway inspirational posting.

Wow, Dave! Simply stunning. The only "issues" I have with it are envy and humility, lol...

I've been reading your blog for about two weeks now, and I'm ashamed this is my first comment... Your work is fantastic!

I hope one day my oil paintings look as spectacular as yours... your ability to render the human face and capture emotion is incredible! (and a whole lot more!)

Well, it seems silly to just leave yet another note of praise, but well, here it is: This a beautiful piece. I too like the composition.

P.S. you don't know me but I've been keeping my eye on your work for a while now. It's always inspiring, and a breath of fresh air after pulling away from the kind of turn my own artwork has taken.

Cheers
