I love your mission paintings, Ed, including this one. Got to see San Juan Capistrano in '05.

Would dearly love to see this. I'm adding it to my list of "must-sees." Your painting is so light-filled. Wonderful work. Really love that flowering bush in particular.

A great use of color Edward. It sings joyfulness.
I have heard and seen a documentary on the "Ice Hotel". Sounds like a real cool experience.
