Favorable Words

I am so warmed by the words of Kristina Laurendi Havens, who is one of my favorite artists.
I am so touched that she would be moved to write about my work. She is a wonderful artist herself. Thank you Kristina! You can see her work along side mine in Gallery 11.

I adore this landscape by Robin. It is somewhere between a landscape and a
beautiful abstract painting. The red sky is intense, but fits - it doesn't take
away from the rest of the piece. The periwinkle horizon of clouds is intensified
by it's relationship with the crimson sky.
The grasses have a range of cool
and warm tones that create a sense of movement - the lilac in the background
layered with the olives and oranges is a particulary beautiful and complex
The placement of the trees strikes a wonderful balance to all of the
open sky and land...I love that there is a linear element among all of the
fields of color.
Gorgeous work, Robin.

absolutely gorgeous landscape, so full of emotion and texture. I want to reach out and touch it. It reminds me of a southern Tasmanian landscape. K.

Very evocative, lovely color and technique. The description was a wonderful compliment, too. How do you like 1000 Markets?

Robin, this is a lovely landscape painting. For some reason I am reminded of the shows about Africa when looking at it. Just lovely!

PS. Thanks for looking me up!
