Re: Over the Sea to Skye OR Red Skye at Night

This is gorgeous! The perspective of depth and distance, the color. I'd take it to our State Fair fine arts show! :D

Re: The Road from Kirkstone Pass

My impression is : massive, vast and boundless. Is that a winding road on the right and a body of water in the middle of far distance?

Enjoyed it.

Re: Secluded

It has luxuriant vegetation at the foot of the mountain. The detail of the small sign adds the finishing touch.

Hi Pauline,

Tried something different this time.
They are meant to be plum blossoms coming out in cold winter. :)
You are very sensitive to colors. :D
Snow is intentionally left blank.

Thank you for your encouraging comments!

Re: 60

Hi David,

60 is a milestone in one's life. As Confucius says :" At sixty, my ear was an obedient organ for the reception of truth." :)

I like the conversational tone that reflects the writer's present state of mind, easy to read into it. I like the mellowness in the poem.

Cheers,

Re: Dreamscape

Hi Paulin,

If it is a result of inspiration, it is already a plus!

The small rocks gathering together in the front made me think they are close to the shore or in the shallow water?

Appreciate your creation.

This makes me happy and smile.
There is a picture in the poem, there is a poem in the picture.
They accompany each other beautifully.

Re: Striding Over the Edge

Hi JJ,

Very impressive! I like landscaping drawings. Looking at it makes people fall into a reverie.
The snow, clouds and mist blend into each other beautifully.
Did you draw it from a picture taken or from your memory?

Re: You never bring me flowers

Hi Pauline, I can't provide any professional suggestions and comments since I don't know much about different schools of art. The title of the painting already hit me. :) I like the texture and the heaviness of layers of color. What's the opposite of realistic painting? Impressionistic? Whatever it ...
