hey, you've changed your blog layout... it is weird how on a subliminal level we take all that in adn have expectations as we click on blogs we follow regularly. brilliant painting as always Don!

Don, love the calm peacefulness of this and the composition is spot on with the tall, waving palms at the back. I really prefer this white background to your blog. Helps the images stand out much more.

Hi Rahina--yeah, thought it was time to shake the blog design up a bit...maybe sweep out the corners. Thanks for your encouragement.

This is very well done! I love the use of color and the movement you captured is wonderful. Have you considered doing this BIG? It would be amazing!

Hi Susan--thanks a lot for the encouragement! I did think when I completed this that it had the makings of a larger painting. I just may do it
