  1. Thank you for your submission and for providing your website too! Your art works are truly magnificent executions of Abstract Expressionism. That is you are working with gesture and in an abstract manner but we can still define the subject matter. I like the proportions of this work and the easy entrance into the work by way of the shadow and long drip line of water that flow over the bottom edge of the work. The use of monotone earth colors lends a sense of history to the art work as well. I look forward to seeing more of your art work!

  2. The expression of rain is modeled in warm hues which adds to the appeal of the image and the flow of light brings the viewer into the work. There is a slight interruption to it’s rhythm on the left portion of the canvas but the figure in the background pulls one back into the work. The figure gives the impression of movement and as it is subtly executed it is entirely in keeping with your creative intent. Very well done.

  3. Highly artistic; another very good painting; the concept walking in the rain is justified as the rain accompanies the rhythm and swinging sound ; windy as the umbrella is bent; it depicts the Existence among the Five Elements! Am I right? Very good picture; painting with promises.

  4. Soft gentle ambiguity of sensuous fluid perceptiveness. Very engaging understatedness of context and tonality. Rather musical visually I find. Lovely.
