Love the perspective. *Le gasp* It's fantastic. I love finding gems like this one that are created with traditional mediums like oil paints or pastels.

again, interesting composition, angle and the use of lack of colour to promote colour :)

Great perspective and foreshortening. The bird's eye view - an original idea

excellent perspective. The greyed backround really helps to push the blue in the photographs that seem to dance across the floor. The overall composition keeps the eye moving in a circular manner. Another masterpiece!

The title of this piece really makes it work for me. All these tiny windows into a vacation (or whatever) experience scattered haphazardly across the austere space. Once we're back, what do all those photos mean? What do all those moments mean? Certainly a sentiment I identify with sometimes.

I also love the perspective and distortion of the figure and the way the light is painted onto the figure in swaths of shaded white.

The perspective is so captivating. i like the detail of the figure herself, with the contrasting large brush strokes for the background. Love the details in the photos.:) Your gallery deserves alot more praise

Hi Moeuf,

I'll have work in Toronto at the Toronto International Art Fair in November. I'm represented there by Abbozzo Gallery. The details and the link to the TIAF is on my site! Hope to see you there! My work is with the gallery all the time in Oakville, in the burbs outside of Toronto.

It's interesting that from the small thumbnail I thought this might have been a photograph... I think it's a lot more impressive being oil though. I like the broad brush strokes. The one thing I always forget about paint is that you don't have to paint all of the details... sometimes it's more effective this way.
