Heidho those are really nicely done! Tell Mark that I really get the feel that those waves are real! They are awesome! Nice colors too! I hope your doing well! I hope those baby steps are working out well for you! How is momma cat doing? were you able to get some stuff for her eyes? I dont even have to ask how Roxy baby is doing!!!!

I love them, heidi! Great spray on the wave! :thumbs up Awesome!! (I could never paint water :rolleyes:)

But my favorite is the seascape framed by the flowers. :lovestruck: Really captures that tropical feel! I love his style on the flowers.

Yeah, I see what you mean--very clean and crisp. I like Mark's more vibrant color scheme better, though. :thumbs up

Nice. The first one I thought was a photo when I first looked at it. The second one is my fave too though.

I'm not good with artsy stuff but I love the first one. We're having a heat wave right now so I would very much like to have this painting in my house :D

:laughing: Yeah i agree,i cant believe he is getting 2500.00 to do a painting,not that i dont think he is good,but it just sounds like alot.Oh well me and roxy dont mind.

Heidi, honestly when I looked at the first one I went "OOOH !!!!" I thought it was striking. I like them both but I absolutely LOVE the first one ! I am praying that one day soon people who only have 2500 won't be able to afford a painting by Mark. He'll be famous and his price will have gone wayyyy up. :thumbs up (The only way anyone could afford one is with their pets.ca discount.;) :laughing: ;) )

Now I'm taking a second look at the second painting and I can't pick a favorite. It reminds me of my honeymoon and these big fragrant flowers that were there. But I like the way your eye is drawn past the color of the flowers and you get drawn to the water--just the way you would if you were there.

Very cool !

I really like the first one... REALLY!
its so simple and leaves so much to the sences ( I can almost hear the wave, the birds, the wind...)
ONe day when I have $3000.00 just "laying around" I would definately be interested in a painting like that.

Those are both very very nice paintings. They look so good, I want to travel into the paintings. Ahhh, nice cool water...:)

I'm not sure which is my favourite, I keep changing my mind!

Okay, my favourite is the first one. It looks so real. The second is lovely and the colours and flowers are striking, just not my style, it doesn't look as real I think. Beautiful pictures. Like the others said, please tell Mark I'm impressed with his talent. I'm sure the gallery will want his paintings. If not Wyland, someone else will. :fingerscr And congrats on the $2500 contract too! Excellent work.

Love the detailing and the colours.
