Congratulations!! You deserve it!

I hate to show my ignorance, but I guess to ask is the only way to know? Is there anyone besides me that never saw the "people quality" to these before? I am feeling quite like I was blind and I just went back and relooked at all the ones I had looked at before....and now I am even more amazed than I was before. My only excuse is that I have not been here for very long, but somehow that doesn't make me feel better. (makes me wonder what else I have missed...sigh).

This one especially has a sort of Atlas Shrugged look to it, to me anyway. I always liked your paintings, John, I just never was really sure why they drew me. I cannot believe it took me so long to "get" them; can I blame it on senior moments??

Again....Congratulations!!

Congratulations, John. Love the colors and energy in this.


Susan, most people didn't see the human figures in John's trees at first. It took a while, so don't chastise yourself. It's human nature not to jump to conclusions on WC, in fear of being wrong and offending someone with a wrong guess. I see things in almost all abstract shapes...sometimes they are not meant to be there....

I, for one, have always seen the people in the trees.
I have always thought that the world could use a few more "People" that are grounded as in Johns trees!
(Guess thats why the roots of every tree he paints has always fascinated me)
