Simply brilliant.

The style has the look of those old painted magazine ads from late 50's National Geographic. (Norwegian Cruise Lines: "Explore The rich history of Norway in world-class comfort!")

Amazing piece, Briex! Your painting even has the 1900's charm to it as well due to your color palette and brush strokes. This is definitely one of my favorite pieces of yours!!!

Briex, this is oustanding in every way. Love the feel of winter air in the pic, the action around the ship... oh my having her frozen up at the backyard, what a romance....and the composition busy and not clutteed at the same time. The best i've seen from you. It must be in the dutch blood to know how to paint such quality pictures.

Obviously an impossible juxtaposition of time and space with architectural correctness playing against old-world everyday life. Excellent techniques throughout. :)

Brilliant Briex! I really like the orange/yellow hue to it, really makes it seem like a time piece. Very well done!

This is an incredible piece, love everything about it.

It reminds of that time travel movie "The Final Countdown" with Kirk Douglass.
