    Yeah. . . don't remind me. I used to hate Sunday because I would have to polish my shoes. . .

    Anyway, lots of nice textures, Pat! Occasionally, you might want to go in with a couple hotter highlights to shine it up, like on the glass and here and there, if it suits ya. There are some artists who do not go for that kind of look because they are after a softer, often nostalgic look. But seeing as it's me talking here, and I do highlights a lot, I'm just saying. A well placed highlight can blow your mind with how little it takes in describing a lifelike texture.

    But this is sensational. I love it. I can almost place this time period and the kinds of sounds, smells, temperatures and world it existed in.

    You have a great aptitude for selecting pictures that carry with them lots of charge. And you're zeroing in on painting them with a lot of voice yourself. Your taste is all an extension of you.

    Nicely keyed to those colors. Very interesting lighting visually as a picture. It creates a very good framing for your elements.

    This is wonderful Pat, so much detail, I really think you should give lessons on your technique.

    WOW...I love it Pat !! Perhaps your best work to date...I am amazed at this one !!
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.
