  1. Hi Russell, The longer I look at your paintings, the more I “discover” something in them. The bottom one, for example: at the bottom of that painting it looks like a mountain is in the distance with fields leading up to it. Then in the middle and at the top it looks like its raining feathers, big, bold feathers that insist on coming down. The feathers could also be a native American’s head dress, whatever those things are called that the chiefs put on their heads with all of those feathers. Anyway, it’s what strikes me. I’m sure lots of your viewers see their special imagery and have fun with it. I know the paintings I want to buy from you, at least two of them. The third I want to be a “blue” one. We’ll talk about this sometime in the spring, which, I trust, is around the corner. Let’s hope it’s not too big a corner. Damaris

  2. Now I understand how you so aptly have been able to describe the colorization of each of the many apples you describe when you write about apples. It gives me even further appreciation for your abstracts. I look forward to receiving your future posts. Thank you!
    Betty Levin.
