    It really is quite a wonderful effect Briex. This ain't as easy as you make it seem. It takes a good eye and a good hand to do this well. You seem to have mastered this approach.

    I like very much Hopper and for sure I like your technique Briex and also your stability in it, I didn't much comments on your work but I think I saw almost all your paintings and I appreciate them.

    The third one speaks with a voice that resonates with the plaque on the Statue of Liberty:

    "Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

    It's actually part of a larger poem, The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus which, it seems to me, strives to show the difference between the short lived Colossus of Rhodes (one of the seven wonders of the ancient world) and Lady Liberty ... between a show of power and self-importance, and one of optimism and welcome.
    Unfortunately, we in America are prone to forgetting just how much we owe to those "huddled masses" who left their "teeming shores" and braved the "tempest-tost" waves of oceans and uncertainty to ultimately build what still struggles to be the land of the free and a beacon of hope not only for it's own citizens but for the world. After more than two and a quarter centuries, we are still a work in progress. Let's hope that we will always be that, for the pursuit of perfection, while an admirable goal, will never be something that needs no further honing.
