There is so much to like in this painting. I like the perspective with the house sitting on this gorgeous hill. Your colors are beautiful, very warm. I feel as though I could walk into the painting. Well done!

Strong composition and color. I was just in Napa last month for the first time. Reminded me of Tuscany. Beautiful painting.

What a stunning painting. So warm and very beautifully painted. It is no wonder that it has sold. The composition works so well...the house isn't right up front center, but allows us to take in the whole scene and atmosphere.

This should be a shoo-in for top honors, Edward!
Love the feeling you've achieved of looking up at the house. Love the blue window. Love the red tree near the focal point. Love the painting!

Well don't want to be redundant, but the choice of angle for this is great, as is the ambiance of the light.

James Parker said...

If the judges don't give ya the honors on this, Ed, then they need a seeing eye dog. Couldn't help but think Andrew Wyeth when I first saw this.
