This one has a sad feel to it Katie. Like he is yearning for someone or something. Well painted as always.

This is so beautiful Katie. He looks as if he is making peace or resolved with something in his life.

I think I can hear the wind and feel the peace in this scene when I look at it. Can't you just feel the fresh cool mountain breeze? Amazing work! :D

the scene reminds me of Khalil Gibran's poem
"Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you." ...

Ms Coops, you really have the most amazing facility with the ArtRage brushes of the oily persuasion. :D

Wonderful use of values. And a very effective composition at that. Feels so open. I love the soaring bird and the placement of the man up so high in his own element. Speaks to me of altitude and seeing.

Fine work and a strong theme. Brava!

That is rather fantastic. The pose on the figure suggests to me that he's very satisfied with himself. Perhaps he's just made it all the way up there, scrabbling the last 10 feet, brushed himself off and is now taking in his achievement. I love that we can see just what his reward is with that fantastic view.

Reminds me of the mountains back home :)
