Hi Cooper,
This last painting has such a serene pastoral feel to it. Lovely.

That's a nice photo of you and your wife. You two make a beautiful couple!

Happy Anniversary, Coop! Sounds like you guys had a very special weekend. This painting of the marsh is another stunning winner! I love the luminoisty of the background strip in the light. Elegant simplicity!

Sally,
Thank you very much for your kind words--I'm flattered and appreciate you taking the time to write. I need that kind of motivation everyday!
The marsh paintings have been great. I'm off to go fishing tonight with a friend at the mouth of the marsh so hope to have some different views to study (because you can never count on catching fish, which is why it's not called 'catching'!)

Thanks Rob--I liked the dynamics of the lighting and glad it works in the painting too!

Thanks Silvina, I was looking at the blog today and wondered why I had put a photo of the marsh up instead of the painting, and then realized it was the painting--a pleasant surprise.
As for the beautiful couple, that's just some people I saw on the beach and asked if I could take their picture. (Just kidding--thanks!)

Thanks Mike. Yes, second anniversary! What am I supposed to get? Paper? Silver? Airline tickets?

Values are on the money here. Another winner. I love those big shadows with the streak of light.

I love the reality in this piece. I had to look twice to see if it was a photo. Wonderful Cooper.

Great pics Cooper... Hope the Maine people can preserve this beautiful State and not sell out like some of the other money grubbing land whores... (my opinion). Thx for recording these treasures!
