    Superlative technique and execution in the realm of realism. Very Classical and modern all at the same time. Excellent work!




    I love everything from the use of line, composition, to the contrast of the bright red against the neutral color and especially the texture. Just beautiful!

    Story Telling

    The subject and story are intriguing. The use of color is bold and supports the message. Really like the lost and found treatment of detail. High quality execution.


    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.
