Wow... this one really grabbed my attention. I love it mono-tonal color scheme! great job.

Wonderfully done. Could it also be
titled, 'At the end of it's rope?" which is the way it feels.
I like "Down East" a lot!

Hi Todd - love this colour scheme very much and the mood it creates. Seems to fit perfectly into a season which is so low of light.
Btw - the frame is a wonderful compliment to this painting. You could not have chosen a better one...
Merry Christmas to you and your family,

Helen, Nina and Petra,

Nice to log on and see your compliments. Thank you. Nina, you seem to have a gift for naming some of my paintings..I love it! regarding the mention of the frame by Petra..I ordered three different frame styles I like to have in my studio just to test them out to see what looks best..a practice I borrowed from an artist friend..what a difference the variety option makes. thanks for noticing Petra, I recommend this to all artist..even if you get a sample corner from a framer, it makes all the difference.
Happy Holidays to you all.

A subtle but luminous light in this one, Todd. And that sense of "something about to happen" that somehow permeates all your work. Great job--Merry Christmas!

Ah... the Bonita effect is in fine form here Todd. Lovely soft and muted palette, good job!

All the best for Christmas and the New Year.


ps: love the frame!
