I hereby certify that this window is located in a building in a city even though all you can see is the courtyard greenery. It is also obviously a picture of part of an interior of the structure.

I think that meets at least two of the criteria for posting on this wonderful new forum; now do I get a "T" shirt for being an early entrant? . . . well, I tried anyway.

Did this last week and was wondering where I could post.
16x20 acrylic/paper

trouble with the uploader-can't figure out what is wrong
maybe the pic will come through anyway

C&C ?!

Yes, it fits in the Forum. :)
This seems a more limited palette than I have seen of your work in Ab/Con.
I like how you treated the light and I always enjoy the movement of the lines you employ.

Daring color there Trier. This has a heavy feeling, but rich and moody.
I'm seeing a little Matisse and the Fauvists. Enjoyed.

I like your use of color here, Trier: You really portrayed well the sense of a cool, dark interior while outside all is bright and sunny and warm. Nicely done.

Great job of creating a mood here Trier,
and I love trees that dance!:thumbsup:

Beautiful color and shapes Trier.

Thanks Jon, much appreciated. Every now and then I try to restrain my use of color.

Hey Derek, great to get your input; I favor Matisse and the Fauves a lot, thanks.

Thank you very much AnnieA.

Thanks, Babs. Dancing trees are very much a part of what I enjoy also.

bhavani, thanks for the nice comment, good to hear from you.

No intellectual reason, but I'm really enjoying the mood (and color) of this painting. It reminds me of rooms I've been in that overlook Gramercy Park in the city, rooms with terraces full of lovely plants that announce the arrival of spring.

Strong and bold, love the purple and the contrast.

A side alcove on the second floor of a big-name bank, in a big city, where the interior all blue Vermont marble. Am I right?

Thank you very much, glad you like the mood.

Thank you Mary, much appreciated.

Pretty close! Only off about one click to the left, as they say.
Waiting area for loan applicants in a mid sized bank in a mid size city, on
the first floor with ordinary gray marble, overlooking a painfully ordinary
courtyard. I used a LOT of artistic license.

You win First Prize any way and you would have received a prize T shirt, but
they ran out

Same result as for my loan.
