    Latest Artists Choice Reviews


    The contrasting colors and composition create a nice flow across the canvas. I like the use of repetition in the roof. It also has a friendly and inviting feel with the white dog near the entry.


    Bright and cheerful! Love the ambiance.

    A Favorite

    Nice view of sunrise in Chinatown.


    The shadows make this piece. Love the contrast and depth. Dramatic use of lighting brings life to this still setting.

    Great Mood

    Like the overall atmosphere of this. The pensive pose. The contrast in the background. Very nice work. Draws the viewer into the subject.
