Hi Edward! Your paining is wonderful! I love the color variations in the painting that the viewer almost misses in the photo. Great eye! Thanks for your kind words! I am about to tackle the saw... procrastination at its finest!!

James Parker said...

Now that's the way I wanted mine to turn out...Sniff, sniff. Seriously, Edward, the changes you made..the little bush up against the building enlarged...the leafless tree shifted to the right, refoliated with blossoms, heightened colors, and doing away with the recessed wall on the left...makes this a 9.78 on the 10 point scale.

Your paintings really speak to me. Love the soft colors.

You are truly blessed to be talented. I am now following your blog.

Vern Schwarz said...

Edward, you've got these Victorians down pat. Great job on this week's. You always deliver the goods.

Nancy and the fatties said...

Hi Edward, thanks for stopping by the bloggy. I like how you can use such a soft palette, but still capture the clean shapes!

Dana Cooper Fine Art said...

BigC said...

Thanks so much for your kind comments on my blog Edward. It means a lot to me coming from such a talented artist! You did an amazing job on the Victorian, as Nancy says, such clean lines. Happy painting!

Very cool painting- there's always a sense of calmness in your strokes!

Really nice work, Edward! It was all I was trying for and more. You made the perspective of the towers (including the windows) look effortless!

Carrie Griesemer said...

Your victorian turned out wonderful, you're able to get the structure so strong without being imposing.

Thanks for the comments on my blog!!

Abby Creek Art said...

Edward, thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your kind words. Nice to meet you!

Your paintings are amazing...I'm blown away. The one you did of Cairo just pulls me in. I'm so sorry you recently lost your beautiful boy. My heart goes out to you.

Keep in touch!

Georgia said...

Edward, first of all thank you for visiting my blog and for your very nice comments.

Thanks to your visit, I now discovered your awesome work which I will be following.

When you come across your paintings especially the victorian posted earlier, you cant help but just stare. You are very talented. Looking forward to seeing a lot more from you.

robin peterson said...

You rocked it Edward, terrific job. A testament to your skills since it's way more interesting than the photo source. Lovely painting of Cairo also, he was a lucky dog after all. You have a steady, confidant hand in your painting that I enjoy. Thanks for sharing.

Marian Fortunati said...

Nice one!! You made it look so much better than the photo...

benjaminlois said...

helow from Spain. i really like your work. i´ve arrived here from Morgaine´s blog and got to say your blog is very very interesting.

Cathyann said...

Hi Edward!
Your work is so fresh. I like your spin on this challenge. Now that I have seen most of the entries, I am sensing that mine pales... But I am glad I did it 'cause now I have two new artists' to share with, more to go see and that made it worthwhile. Karin Jurick certainly has done a good thing here.

Robin Roberts said...

Edward, I just stopped by after seeing your rendition on the DSFDF web site. I just submitted my first painting to her challenge last week. I really like your take on the house and tree's. I think it is very interesting to see how different artists interpret the image. Great job.

Austin Maloney said...

Hi Edward, great job on the Victorian. I've always liked your art, so I really appreciated your commenting on some of my paintings.

Keep up the great work,

Austin

Erika Nelson said...

Edward you are you good with details and you have great precision. It's beautiful and always a pleasure to view your work!

Kim VanDerhoek said...

Great job on this building! You made it look so much better than the photo.

dominique eichi said...

what a painting of this challenge. There is a sense of peace. Your work portrays that sense very well.

Sally Tharp said...

Edward, Your painings are lovely! I found this to be a very difficult subject and you executed it so well!! I also really enjoyed seeing the othe paintings on your blog... beautiful! So sorry to hear about your beloved Cairo.. It looks like she was quite blessed to have been adopted by such loving owners. Thanks for visiting my blog! I will look forward to seeing more of your work!

I really enjoy the graphic style employed in this painting..it is a sort of loose control. Very appealing!
