    I see so many things with your painting Katie. I see the sun coming up over the mountain and a gentle little pond below with flowers. This richly colored and textured abstract is a winner in my opinion.

    Oh Katie, I just saw your title! It is a rainbow. And a beautiful one indeed!
    Big duh for me today!

    Beautiful colors and textures, coops! An interesting departure.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Ah, Ms Coops, there is always something arresting about those magical slivers in between, between day and night, between rain and sun. There's always a bit o' magic there, isn't there.

    I must address that rainbow first. With those bold strokes you've managed to capture the delicacy of one of the most delicate visions an April sky has to offer. It's like Mother Nature going "Ta-da!" ending the storm with a natural flourish.

    I love how you've managed to achieve the feeling of prismatic light in the air. . . and with thick, general paint strokes. Really a noteworthy artistic accomplishment. To me it's like hitting only a tight bulls-eye with a wide bore shotgun. Your palette is remarkable.

    I see this as an island setting, a remote island where a painter might commune with nature and discover wonders, a sort of Walden Pond with an ocean view.

    Again, your work with impasto oils is always a marvel. Well done, Ms Coops.
