I grew up in southern California so I know just what you are talking about. I live in Florida now, but I've been seeing pictures of this year's bloom in CA - amazing!. You did a good job capturing this beautiful landscape. I miss not being able to see it in person.

Comment from Brady Nielson


I think this is a beautiful painting. I was recently thinking of the fires that have devastated California over the last several years and find this painting very fitting for those times. It reminds me that there is always something good around the corner if you keep pressing forward. Really great job here, I appreciate you sharing this.

    Thank you so much for your kind review and for seeing something so encouraging in my painting. All of the wild fires are truly devastating. I am grateful that I do not live near where the fires have hit, but it is heartbreaking none the same. Thanks again and I apologize for the late response. :)

Nice use of color to attract the eye. I've been working with abstract lately and parts of your piece combines abstract with Impressionism as I tend to do also. Love how you used darker colors in the foreground and distance but that brighter band of yellowish green in the middle really adds to it and carries the eye toward the back. Well done.

You have created a lovely work of art that immediately puts a smile on my face. To look at the very pretty field of flowers in the foreground and in the background is a truly welcoming sight of Spring. I also admire the radiant mountain and sky. I also love all of the bright colors that you used for your artwork.

Bravo to your artistic talent.

Comment from Christine Rohr


I went to the super bloom this year. So the color is pretty spot on and they covered the hillsides outside Lake Elsinore. The painting has depth. I have been really looking at your painting for a while here, and my only comment would be that the mountain is so strong in color and position that it may distract the eye a little from your beautiful poppies. Otherwise a beautiful impression of a beautiful piece of nature.

    Thank you for taking the time to review my painting and for the suggestion. I agree it is a little bright when it could probably just fade into the background more. :)

Nice work on the watercolor/pencil color. I like the feel and look of the artwork. It is nicely done. It almost has an abstract feel to it. I like the vibrant colors. well done.

    Thank you for your kind review. You are not the only person that has said that. That was not my intention but I always enjoy it when people see other things in my art that may not have been intentional. Thanks again, I am glad that you enjoyed it. :)
Comment from Envision


I like how you filled the foreground with those pretty flowers and then lead the view to the mountain across an entire field of colors. The color blending on the poppies look very nice. I like the

Comment from Joan McKay


This painting is simple but it shows great depth. The flowers in front lead your eyes right up to the more distant poppies and the mountain. The mountain leads you to the sky. All in all, it is very striking and shows great depth.
