I love pattern of light and shade. Lots of contrast but still a soft effect. Fab.

This is great Robin! Those umbrellas just lead you right into the picture. The urban scenes are such a contrast to the plein air nature ones you had been working on. I love them both!

Love the glow of your umbrellas and the echoing, reflected glow in your shadows.
People say it rains all the time in Seattle. These people need to take a look at J&M Cafe.

Hi Robin,

WOW... wonderful paintings!!! We have a house up here and I will probably be back... I'll make sure when we have more time, that I go by where you have your work... It's fabulous!!!

Elizabeth Destouches said...

Look up me when you do, Robin. It's very beautiful here too. Lots of green and beautiful old stone.

Robin Weiss said...
