I must say my Friend, You keep comming up with one magnificent painting after another. What else can be said.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

This beauty reminds of a movie called 'What Dreams May Come'.
having said that, I'm wondering if the columns/roof are just
a tad off-kilter, or is it just the photograph?
I do think the structure's columns look a little
ight and one-
dimensional - a little more shading/distressing, perhaps?
Don't get me wrong - I love your work!!!

I think this is my favorite one yet, though I too notice a lack of depth with the columns... aside from that this is fantastic!

Hi Mike,
Love the feel of this one! Colors are so well layed out, almost a mystical feel.
I do agree with previous posts about the columns. Maybe some shading to round them a bit?
Love your work, and this is no exception...can you get me THERE!? It looks so calm and peaceful, would love to be in such a tranquil setting.
Good to see your work, Mike! :D

Such an incredible rendering, Mike. I love the details that you applied on this one and you played well with the colors. Do you have a photo reference on this one, or you just came up with it from your imagination? Before I forgot, I also have to agree with them regarding the lack of depth on the columns. Other than that though, this is truly an excellent oil painting. Keep up the good work.
