Yesss! Now that's what I'm talking about!
I love the loosely rendered, dark background surrounding the mysterious 'smoker'.
This dynamic painting is infused with life!

Your artwork continues to be breath-taking, Robin. And it doesn't have anything to do with the smoke. :-)

This has great atmosphere. Pretty intriguing... What kind of life does she have? Where is she going?

What a cool painting! I love the brilliant sunshine, and the diagonal slant of the street, and the way the smoke curls. Lovely.

You made me actually love a painting of a smoker!

Wow. I love the light on the woman and the color of blue on her head. Then I looked on and noticed the bright colors on the other paintings that you have done. I really like your work and will be watching for more of it. This is the first time that I am on your blog.
