    Red face My début piece

    Hello fellow Ragers,
    This is the first thread I've started since becoming a member of this fine community of artists, thinkers and friends.
    I thought it fitting that I should show my début piece again here and graciously ask you all for your thoughts and criticisms.

    This picture means a lot to me and was something I just had to paint. For the next 3 or 4 days following its completion I walked around feeling a sense of relief and calmness I hadn't felt in a while.

    Anyway,
    any and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

    Kindest Regards,
    S J Patterson

    This is my son

    Many thanks for the kind comments from LogicsHere and Jasminek.
    I thought I might post another picture.
    This one of my son Kenny took me about 10 days to get the way I wanted. I did it as a wedding anniversary gift for my wife and had it printed on a large canvas for her.

    Very, very nice work you presented here, S.J. i enjoyed both of them....prefer the first one... there's something magic about the atmosphere.... the silvery shimmer in the air gives the scene the interest and mystery.
