Such amazing colors and textures. The compositions are intriguing. Although the computer image is wonderful, I would love to be able to see the original brushstrokes. My favorites are the ones that seem to have a story. Thank you American Artist for putting this visual delight online, and thank you Patrick Gordon for sharing with me a part of your world.
