Hello fellow Ragers,
This is the first thread I've started since becoming a member of this fine community of artists, thinkers and friends.
I thought it fitting that I should show my début piece again here and graciously ask you all for your thoughts and criticisms.

This picture means a lot to me and was something I just had to paint. For the next 3 or 4 days following its completion I walked around feeling a sense of relief and calmness I hadn't felt in a while.

any and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Kindest Regards,
S J Patterson

Many thanks for the kind comments from LogicsHere and Jasminek.
I thought I might post another picture.
This one of my son Kenny took me about 10 days to get the way I wanted. I did it as a wedding anniversary gift for my wife and had it printed on a large canvas for her.

Very, very nice work you presented here, S.J. i enjoyed both of them....prefer the first one... there's something magic about the atmosphere.... the silvery shimmer in the air gives the scene the interest and mystery. :)

Dear S.J., Hello!!!! both paintings are beautiful!!! both so different, the one stormy and emotional, could almost touch the slivery peaks of the waves, the other gift painting is serene and dear, terrific both!!! best wishes!!!:)

Great start, you're right AR can be a blackhole for time:D but normally you have something cool to print.
