Thank you all very much for your kind comments :).

Gary, I really envy you the gift of being able to read the thoughts incarnated in art. ...The sense of wonder and adventure... was indeed the part of inspiration behind it. I wish, ...I could so nice and accurate comment on your abstracts... They deserve it even more IMO.

Very rich and warm. Feels somewhat fantasy, like an illustration for an old Jules Verne story. I wonder what wonders and excitement they will discover when they sink into and below the clouds. Those clouds have that kind of dark, mysterious character.

The concrete texture is kind of funny, in that you said you used to do chalk on sidewalk. I love it!!!!! Hahaha. Must bring up old feelings from when you did that. If in fact that is what you are after, I would recommend perhaps adding some more sidewalk character like some trompe l'oeil, fool the eye cracks and a couple random pebbles, or perhaps a cast shadow from the artist or a hat with some coins?

Fantastic. . . really like this one.

Thank you Dave, I'm trying also some less used tools of ArtRage. They are surprisingly efficient IMO.
Yeach D Akey, the old habits you are talking about, seem still to influence me in some way. Although I had to change some of my constrains, since wacom doesn't provide rubber protectors for the knee :D
Thank you semd and kenmo for your insight and nice comments :)

Beautifully done Strandy. Has a nice feel to it.

Fascinating image...the more I look at it, the more I get drawn into the painting.... Kind of reminds me of something Richard Corben would have drawn....

Outstanding work for sure....
