    Sandy, great colors and mood on this, very pretty! Only one thing I'd change is the lighthouse is 'kissing' the border of the painting. Maybe the sky could be added to.

    Love this as a banner kind of very horizontal design. The upper half is so strong and it says so much visually and thematically. Very nice light beams. Nice stylization with the asymmetry of it. Feels like it can pierce through even the thickest storm. Interesting use of black Really says to me that the darkness doesn't always come in the expected ways and being able to cut through it is admirable not to mention useful.

    I like this format and how you used it for a magnificent view and a marvellous colors harmony. It's only a little weird to see the beacon bowing toward us ...

    I like this one Sandy and the palette you've chosen...good one !!!
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    I agree Neal, and I should have addressed this part of the painting. Easily done though-so I will work on that today. Thanks for the kind C and C!

    Thanks so much D Akey. In my life, where we have been hit hard with a few things, His light shines through for us. I can always depend on that beacon in the storm.

    Thanks Cesare, you know...I will work on the top of the lighthouse and the perspective. Still so hard for me to do! I'll get there though...with this rock on my shoulders.

    Thanks Steve, much appreciated dear friend. It is great having you back with us.
