Lovely! The detail in the old buildings are so wonderful! It makes them so much more beautiful to paint. The way you captured the glow on the brick is just lovely. I also like the little pops of red here nd there along with the puddles in the street in the shadow. We had quite a snowstorm here last night. accidents everywhere! People in NM just are not accustomed to icy roads. I had to park my Jag several miles from home and have Vic come get me in his 4-wheel drive. Hope all is well.

I'm trying not to use overused words like "great" and "awesome," but this painting is both of those things. I study the way you simplify shapes and compose with values. You make it look easy and but it's not easy at all!
