Wonderful feeling of balance, harmony and cheerfulness. Dazzling and unexplored sun-filled riverside, tenderly winding between river and blue sky. The wriggling of the cold fresh water, almost audible. And it seems that some little golden fishes are dancing to the right side, in honour of the Spring rebirth ! An achievement.
Like the painting very much but was more pleased by the mention you got in the new issue of Traditional Home magazine. It was also nice to see that their sample painting was one of your lemon still lifes. I am a proud owner of one of your variations on that. Kudos to you.
Have been enjoying your blog for a while but this is the first time I've posted. Love this landscape but notice that you also paint (among other great still life objects)a pretty cool lemon!
