Like Richard, this reminds me of Monet. Just as nice as his views of the Thames.

Most amazing panorama Rob! And it looks so darned cold!

Yes, the here and now is the greatest but sometimes a calling comes like when we are just back from a fabulous holiday.

The atmosphere in this painting is beautiful! I especially enjoy the little details you added, it's just enough info. without going overboard.

Hi there Rob!... Thanks for your recent visit and encouraging comments!

Your own recent works of Amsterdam are nothing short of spectacular in composition... and in colour! They capture the active and unbridled feeling that comes only from the passion one has... for their native land!

Well done my friend!

Good Painting!
Warmest regards,
Bruce
