both beautiful and make me long for the sea! I can nearly hear its swooshing and shushing as I look at these.

Hi Lima, many years ago I lived for a while in Fuenterrabía (país Vasco), and walked the beaches and the light as I remember it looked just as you have painted it on the sea and on the rocks in Icarai ...

This website software is like my former mother-in-law. . . she would throw away important stuff when I had my back turned. I divorced her daughter and the lovely lady herself died sometime back, yet I'm still not far enough away from her apparently. I think she may be the ghost in the machine that lives here at ArtRage. She continues shredding things before I even get to post it. I have learned to copy my posts to the copy buffer before pressing [Post], but I did not do that this time. . . and she snuck up and snatched it away into the void. . . but I digress. . .

Right. Dr Lima. . . to recover what I was getting at, I was saying looking at your work is like being on tour with one of the grand Impressionist painters. It would be very hard to not grab for my paints whenever I come into contact with you. Your good health sir!

Both pictures are wonderful in different ways. I like the colorful one that sparkles with sunlight and colors where the strokes and adjacent colors are very dynamic -- a dazzle for the senses.

I also very much like the elegance more monochromatic one with the Spire rising out of the water for the way it captures that moist coastal atmosphere. You have a lot of marks at play, but they seem to fit closer together in value and temperature. . . not unlike what I experience from that kind of weather. Love the saturated accents. Makes it feel aglow.

Very fine work!! Bravo! I can tell by your work that you are indeed painting again. . . and again and more and joyfully.

If your environment is half as beautiful as you paint it, you are in a painter's haven.

Thank You for sharing this couple of new marvels, dear Oriane. Your re-interpretation of impressionism with built-in feelings and Your chromatic wealth are stunning as ever!

How wonderful to see you painting again dear Oriane and these are two beautiful paintings. The first is so vibrant and full of feeling and the second so full of the power of the sea. Well done dear Friend:)
