Still lingering over images from the past. All oil brush, from scratch. (3 diff photos as refs, and a lot of imagination.)

Skylar, this is one of my favorites of your many great efforts!

L Skylar Brown,
Sometimes I wonder if I may have lived a former life because when
I come across an engaging setting with old world ambiance such as
this, nostalgia seems to surface. Masterful artwork, as inviting as a
soft summer breeze through an open window and most beautifully
painted. :)

Just great Sky! The interplay between the painting as a single image and the separate panes of glass is really interesting.

Wonderful painting Skylar. Makes me think just who lives in those houses and who lives on the hill. Boy what stories could be made from this one painting. Excellent:)

You've obviously put a lot of work into your painting. I especially like the way the light moves your eye through the painting from window to street to up the hill. Your brushwork adds to the overall painting, also. Nice bright flowers, old European scene framed by a pane window, what more could we want? Excellent work!

I'd love to purchase this painting, if it were for sale. I like the fact that it looks so real. Excellent!!!

Hi Everybody! I'm so happy with your responses to this Thank each and every one of you for responding.
Scott - It might be one of mine, too!
Mairzie - Maybe there is something to that DejaVu thing.
Sandy - I hoped it would have that effect. I thought it makes one feel "In" the picture.
Jas - It did turn out much as I envisioned.
Jean - A Special THANK YOU, for here, and for the comments at WC!
Amanda - I appreciate your compliment so much!
Javier - Thanks so much.
Al - Yes, it adds a dimension to treat ea pane as a mini view.
Coops - does it remind you of places you have gone? So many possibilities.
Mar - I usually paint a place or feeling I have seen or experienced. This is an amalgamation
Ev - I Do Sell Giclee Prints - That's how I make $ LOL

You're a skilled artist for sure, dear Skylar, and it seems impossible for You to produce less than excellent works!

This painting reminded me of my trip to Switzerland and a visit to Zermatt. Brilliant composition and a true feel of Europe.

Martha - What wonderful words! I appreciate them so much. I keep perfecting my digital impressionism, and this has gone another step. It is to the point where most people tell me they can't tell the diff between my digital, and my traditional pieces.

Logic, Sabena - Thank you both for the compliments.

Everything works here. Chromatically, it's delicious. Dimensionally it pitches you from a cloistered room to a less cloistered courtyard to an area of openness that has an arrow pointing to the universe. All along the way there are angles and planes and soft and hard surfaces that snag the eye. It is birth, protection, exploration, and release.
An absolutely arresting and thought provoking piece of work Sky-Man.
