Hi Lisa. I like this overall. I think the bottom half is especially successful with its loose abstract feel. With the top half I feel that there is a bit of uncertainty of direction. The the hills are pretty well defined, and for me their sharp bumps compete with the looseness of the bottom half. The pale sky seems even more representational and less abstract and its colour doesn't match the vibrancy of the wonderful green fields and hills nor the abstract quality that I like in the bottom half. The sky on its own is great.

Just my reaction of course. But I do think there are some really nice features in the painting. :)

I'm more of a realist so I'll admit that this kind of thing doesn't grab me right away. But the more I look at it the more it grows on me. Interesting how that happens.

hi there.

Thanks for your comments, I'll think it over for next time, I often work a lot on the sky, don't know why ;)
