    Fantastic Pat!!!!!

    Love the palette. Very earthy, old world, back roads. If I were to suggest anything, it might be that for me when doing objects against a wall, like the bicycle, I tend to keep the area behind the detail somewhat shadowy so as not to compete with the object. It's a small thing but I've found it's simpler on the eye and doesn't draw more attention than it warrants. (In this case behind the front wheel through the spokes, I just would have made it all the normal drab blue-green paint of the wood and not let any light through. Whether a photo may have looked like there was light, it's an artistic choice sometimes.

    Anyway, this is great!!! Love the theme too! GO PAT!!!!!!

    I love old buildings and this one was wonderfully done :-)
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Love the painting. Was I the only one that noticed that someone parked a taxi in the post office?
