Portfolios: Work I Love III

Comment by Kat Bailey on November 16, 2018 at 3:53pm

I'm crazy about this piece. Love it.

Thank you so much John, Kat, And P.J.

I must confess that the composition was all but finished when my niece snapped the photo. This one really tested me. Keeping track of the way the sunlight played across every plane and object took a good deal of focus. I was only satisfied with it after getting back from the frame shop. That meant I was truly finished with it and had only to hand to my niece.

Love this with it's play of light.

Not easy doing that from a phone. Well done.

Beautifully done my friend where you also a member of PIL?

I am sure I saw your work there or am I wrong.

I was indeed on PIL Adam, I often admired your work there as well. I have encountered several refugees from PIL here. One of the reasons I gravitated to the Art colony is the members here remind me of the early days of PIL. Everything changes over time but it seemed there were fewer and fewer ways to engage other members on PIL. Also many of the artists I did have an on-going dialog with simply stopped using the site over changes that site administration made that they didn't like. I was on my final membership renewal there when the announcement came that they were shutting down the website.
