You transport me with this image! I agree with Maria...so warm and I love the way you have the awning almost embracing the patrons. Bravo!

Wonderful abstract qualities in this one - and beautiful color - but it's the sunshine and shadow play that quickens my pulse!

That shadow color is so perfect! Love the red and white stripe and the abstract shape of the shadow.

Your shadows are so believable. Great work!

Love this! Everything is so elegantly stated and balanced. The bold stripes and subtle shadows... And the background buildings in the background stay back adding much dimension. Really nice. Inspires me to paint more complex compositions!

I love this and would like to be there right now. The way you captured the light and painted the building in the background are spectacular.
