I feel as though I've found a goldmine finding your work. Unbelievable. You deserve more recognition than this, it is astounding. Especially the Grand Canyon collection. The way you convey colours, light, depth, feeling, warmth, tone in your work is amazing. The way you paint sky, land, water, trees, each scene seems to be mesmerising and not just because of the view you're painting. Beautiful.
