    orianelima,
    Your talent and glorious painting style has created a drenched with
    energy night scene that is awash with lush, atmospheric ambiance.
    It speaks somehow of expectation as the bartender takes note of
    the one who approaches. The room seems charged with star studded
    electricity and excitement provided by and thanks to the spectacular
    color spectrum and deliciously inviting texture application. Fantastic
    artistry and so well painted!

    Oriane,
    I love this totally. D-Akey was so clever to have chosen this signature. What a wonderful quote and wonderful painting you have mastered. Love it, love it, love it.

    Snappy title, sir!

    This lavish painting holds the essence of nocturnal experience of the romantic, artistic Paris, wherein color is hanging in the air, waiting to be given a form that pleases both the senses and the soul. An artist's watering hole bubbling with creative and genial conversation.

    It's as if you're holding up a glass of drink like an artistic, Impressionistic lens of liquid Tiffany. It zeroes in on the face of the bartender who's serving up a specialty of the house, a Manet with a splash of absinthe.

    This is a painting of artistic longing for that intangible expression, distilled grace from the muse. I go to this place every night. I live for the promise that some day that perfect painting will appear, those words that get it right. Meanwhile I toast all who aspire. And I raise my glass to you.

    Fine painting.

    Thank you Alexandra. The words are my own written for this signature, and have come out of my palette of mind upon which I mix images like paints and present them for viewing -- not unlike what Orianelima has offered visually. His interpretation is a brilliant tangent and I'm flattered by the unexpected collaboration. One hopes that their creative expression takes life.

    D-Akey: Well, I would sure put my name to that quote. It is one of the best I have ever heard. It reminds me of Bogart for some reason. Couldn't you just hear him speaking it? Sorry-I love Boggie.
    I think it was great Oriane, that you thought of it.
